Naritasan Shinshoji Temple | Solemn and Beautiful

Narita is a city in Chiba Prefecture, roughly 60 kilometers east of central Tokyo. Foreigners who come from other parts of the world by air usually take their first step onto Japanese soil in Narita City, where the Narita International Airport is located. The city has another important role; besides being a gateway to Japan, it is the temple town of Narita-san Shinsho-ji Temple, a popular Buddhist temple with a history of over 1000 years, which attracts more than 13 million worshippers a year. Shinsho-ji Temple has always a time-honored place of worship since it was erected in 940. There are many Buddhist statues in towers that are characteristic of the mid-Edo Period in the 18th century. In addition to the temple, the city and surroundings have several other attractions that can keep transit travelers and those with excess time at the airport busy for some time.
