“Tranquil, relaxing park to walk or just take in the view”

Sakura no yama Park
Ranked #3 of 149 things to do in Narita
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 April 2018 via mobile

Sakura no Yama Park is a great place to take an easy stroll along the paved walkways or to sit with a coffee and enjoy the aircraft landing and taking off at Tokyo Narita International Airport. Small grocery store and Pilot shop (FlightShop Charlie's) with gifts and souvenirs is on site with restrooms available.

If staying overnight between flights i would recommend staying at the Marroad International Hotel Narita which is a 10 minute walk away.

This is a great place to watch planes land at Narita Airport, as long as the wind is blowing the right way. If the planes are talking off towards this park then they are a big high by the time they fly overhead, but landings are great. No need for expensive zoom lenses, either, as the planes come in very close. I always appreciate how Japanese authorities go out of their way to create facilities to allow people to take photographs at or near airports, and this is no exception. A few years ago it was just a basic park space with a very small toilet, but today there is a gift shop and much more in the way of amenities. It is true that the road back to the airport can get busy so leave enough time to leave the area if you are on a schedule.

I got stuck here with no way back to the airport. Although I speak French and Italian, I have no Japanese. Buses come rarely, and the staff could not help me call a cab. Finally I got a bus to the airport, but thank heavens I have a much-later flight. I almost ended up walking 45 minutes to the airport with all my luggage. Not worth it at all.

You have amazing views across Narita airport RWY 16R. Aircraft come in nice and low, perfect for photography. Lots of seating and nice flower beds, very nice scenery. There's also a gift shop and cafe but it's quite expensive. I recommend going across the road to the small convenience store, better food and a bit cheaper.
