Following to Haneda, Narita International Airport is the second largest airport in Japan.
The number of international passengers is No.1 in Japan, it means, the number of tourists from abroad is also No.1.
Narita International Airport is often used as the transit for people who want to go somewhere via Japan, and a lot of people use this entrance of Japan every day.
Though Narita International Airport has various services for customers to be comfortable and enjoyable, people who stay as the transit for a long time have too much time, so that they are tired before reaching their destination.
In this complaint, do you know a popular transit tour that is to visit tourist spots around the airport during this idle time?
This transit tour is named “Narita Transit Program”, and it has been started since March in 2015.
It planed from a thought of “want you to know the goodness of Japan by this chance, and want you to choose Japan as the destination next time.”
The airport plans the schedule, so that you do not worry about the time.
This tour has changed as the new service named “Narita Transit & Stay Program” since March in 2017.
People who stay around the airport are able to use this service, so that it becomes more popular.

In “Naritasan course”, you will visit Naritasan Shinsho-ji Temple, that is the famous Buddhism tempe in Japan built in 940 A.D., and has the 1100 years of history.

The cloth on the long side of the tatami to reinforce it is called “Tatamiberi”, and Tatamiberi in Shinsho-ji Temple is called “Naritasan Daimonberi”.
