Decided to detour here for the unagi don while heading to the narita airport. Was pleasantly surprised by the relaxed enviroment walking along the street with so many stores to explore. One of the more well known unagi restaurant has a queue of at least 30mins, so we decided to head for a smaller restaurant nearby. The unagi don is... More

You can find all kinds of shops selling Japanese goods from souvenirs to sesame ice cream. There is also a hundred year old traditional unagi (eel) restaurant. There is also a shop specializing in making senbei (rice crackers) which were delicious compared to those you buy in supermarkets. I bought excellent Japan-made teaware at one of the shops here. There... More

This is a fabulous street for Japanese Nic Nacs. Anything from eel restaurants to Sake shops. Very pleasant browsing before you get to the Naritsan Shishoji Temple and the park. A visual treat of mostly old style buildings.

I was in narita and went to visit this place. Omotesando street is the path that gets you from narita station to naritasan shinshoji temple. Along the street were a lot of shops mainly gift shops, restaurants and souvenir stores. Here you will also find some good food stops especially the ones that serves unagi or eel. Ang great way...

Had a long layover at Narita airport so I signed up for a free guided tour offered by Narita Transit Program. Navigating around Japan on your own can be stressful, so this is a great way to experience a dose of Japanese culture without the hassle of looking up the map every two seconds. My guides were two older gentlemen... More

Had some extra time to spend before a flight out the next day, and happened upon this gem. The street is full of interesting shops and cultural experiences. You can find all kinds of food places, souvenir shops, and beautiful historical buildings.

My family enjoyed very much today in this comfortable path which led to the Naritasan Shinshō-ji Temple. It was a easy walk and what we enjoyed were those small shops which carries its own history and character, not only food and drinks, or simply souvenirs. All you need is time to explore them one by one. I appreciate this kind... More

Arrived pretty early to find most shops were closed but this was actually a nice time and very peaceful. It was interesting to see the shop owners opening up and meticulously cleaning up and preparing. There are a bunch of interesting little stores and restaurants and some people even speak some English.

If you want to see Japan as old as 500 years ago, then this is the place. There are still a few, probably 4 very old houses that were built circa 1500. Most of them have stores and you can engage the owners to a little chat. Most people are friendly and polite as well.
