Narita-san Shinshoji temple is very famous for its popularlity. Especially, many people visit there for Hatumode, New Year's first visit for praying health and happiness for the year. It's a typical Japanese Buddhist temple llocated on a mountain with three-stories pagoda.
This Esoteric Buddhism offers Homa-ritual daily. Head priest burns ceder sticks offered by followers to pray ward off evil and make their wishes come true. This is very dynamic acompanied with the chant of sutras and the sound of drums.
The approach is also a lot of fun. Local speciality is unagi dish, Japanese style broiled eel. Many shops are selling traditional type of souvenirs, sweets or drinks.

Due to lack of time I decided to hire a Tokyo local guide to make use of our time,most especially for 7 hours. I did not regret to choose Noriko ,she was professional ,punctual ,very knowledgeable and she can feel the feelings of what we really wanted to see. We were so happy because we saw the places we wanted in 7 hours time. We recommend Noriko to all travellers who wanted to see in a short period of time. Thank you ? Maraming Salamat Noriko❤️???? Teresita and Notker
Noriko was an amazing guide. Took me to beautiful places I would have never seen by myself in Tokyo, Japan where I stayed at. She was very knowledgeable about everything. I had two slightly rainy days in the mornings but she would find something to go see instead of waiting for the rain to stop. What made it even more beautiful was the trip we took to Hakone. For it being my first trip to Japan it was an amazing experience thanks to her. I can't wait for my next visit to Japan and continue my adventures. Thanks Noriko
Hi Edwin, Thank you so much for your great review. I'm glad that you could enjoy a lot. It is also because you researched many things and are open to new things such as food. I was also amazed that you are so kind. I think now your family and frieds are happy sharing your experience. Please come back and continue your adventures! Thanks with regards, Noriko
Noriko was punctual, knowledgeable, and conversant. We went to Mt. Fuji and Hakone with her and she did her best to show us whatever she could despite the rain and clouds. She suggested alternative sites because our ropeway was closed due to earthquake recently. Noriko listened to our suggestions and tried to please us as much as possible without jeopodising the schedule and time.
Noriko was an able guide who was able to lead us to see Mt Fuji as viewed from Oishi Park. We went to on this trip to see Mt Fuji while Tokyo was having a heat wave, we were able Noriko was able to guide us thru the maze of trains and bus to get there. There were 10+ of us in the group and going from one mode of transportation to another can be daunting but she guided us very well. My only request is that maybe she could have advised us of the availability of chartered bus since we were a big group. Overall. it was a good day to see Mt Fuji as guided by Noriko.
Dear Arthur, Thank you so much for your suggestion. It was a very hot day, so good to escape from Tokyo and feel a nice breeze in the mountaineous area. I had explained to make my itinerary by using public transportation, however, I apologize if you felt it was incovenient. Thank you so much for your choosing Japan as a destination for your memorable family reunion! Sincerely, Noriko
