Airport, Traveling in Japan with a baby

Narita Mountain Temple

Want some fresh air and some space to let your kids run around when you get to Narita Airport in Tokyo?

I highly recommend to visit Narita Mountain Temple! It is amazing!!

I’ve lived in Japan for over 15 years and I’ve always wanted to visit this temple, but I’m usually so focused on getting to the airport or getting into the city, there is never enough time.

This time though, I decided to take it slow, stay overnight at a hotel at Narita Airport, and get lots of fresh air and relax time before the flight. My son is actually extremely sensitivity to travel sickness (he gets motion sickness in the car/bus/plane really easily!) so I wanted to give him plenty of time to rest and recover between the bus and plane.

We caught a taxi to the temple (just a few minutes from the airport hotel) and it was even more amazing than I expected! Make sure you visit with your kids!!

This was the main temple. Inside they were holding a ceremony – you can take off your shoes and go in if you wish. We decided to explore the back of the building! My kids wouldn’t have been able to sit still in the ceremony haha
