I had a six hour layover after landing in Tokyo’s Narita International Airport before departing for my flight to Los Angeles. A short layover at NRT isn’t enough to venture out into Tokyo city center because it’s an hour away without traffic. Thankfully, Narita town in Chiba is only a short 10 minute train ride from Narita airport. This would be my second time in Narita and I fully knew what to expect, but I hadn’t visited in three years.

The quickest and most efficient way to get to Narita town is by taking the Keisei Main Line to Keisei Narita station and it’s only one stop from Terminal 2 of NRT airport.
There are left luggage lockers at Keisei Narita station for your convenience. I’ve used these before and they can fit a carry on without a problem.
It was really early in the morning and merchants weren’t open yet.
The only thing open was the FamilyMart convenience store and the local newspaper stand.
There is also a plethora of vending machines serving beverages and cigarettes.
Within walking distance of Keisei Narita Station is the JR Narita Station which connects with the massive train network in Tokyo.
You can get around Narita town by car, taxi, bike, or bus.
I prefer good old fashion walking when I’m in Narita town.
The great thing about Narita town is that there is free Wi-Fi available which makes it very convenient for accessing the internet.
There weren’t many shops open at this hour, but I did find one that was selling souvenirs.
There are also various temples in Narita town.
I was heading down the hill towards the famous Naritasan Shinsho Temple.
At the entrance of the Naritasan Shinsho Temple, you can find vendors.
Before entering the temple, there is a well of water for cleansing.
This is the view of the Sanmon gate entrance to the Buddhist temple.
After spending some time at the Naritasan Shinsho Temple, I was exhausted and headed back to the Keisei Narita Station towards Narita International Airport Terminal 2.
