Scott and I are big on taking advantage of long layovers at places we have never visited before, and Japan was no exception. Previous to this layover visit, Japan was never on my list of “must see” places so I was extremely surprised at how much I loved the small portion of this country that we were able to see.
My first impressions of Narita, Japan was the cleanliness of the streets and town. I was a little shocked at the prices of everything, but the kindness of the locals made up for this tenfold.
Since Scott and I have experienced the kindness of the Japanese people during this visit, I was not shocked to hear there was no looting by the Japanese people after the recent devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
Join us as we walk the streets of Narita, Japan and visit the gorgeous Naritasan Temple.
