4.Naritasan Shinshoji Temple
Naritasan Shinshoji Temple was built in 940 in hopes for peace so that the revolt by then-War General Taira no Masakado would end. Fudo-myoo (Acala, a Buddhist symbol), which is said to lead people to enlightenment with its facial expression filled with fury and wrath, is the temple's main object of worship.
Fudo-myoo has been worshiped by many historical figures. As kabuki classical Japanese dance-drama programs gained popularity, with Fudo-myoo performed by Ichikawa Danjuro, in the Edo period, the temple attracted more worshipers and is visited by many worshipers every year even today.
The main worship hall, which is the most important place for offering prayers, is open to all visitors.
There are many historical buildings for you to see, including the 58-meter-high Great Peace Pagoda with the messages for peace given by the heads of states, and the 25-meter-high, three-story pagoda, which is designated as an Important Cultural Property with beautiful carvings on the outside.
On the temple grounds, a large park with a waterfall and a pond are maintained, so visitors can enjoy a relaxing time surrounded by flowers.
The temple is a 10-minute walk from the JR Narita Station or the Keisei Line's Keisei Narita Station. It is also only an 8-minute train ride from the Narita Airport Terminal 2 Station to the JR Narita Station.
“I never knew there was such a nice shop like this at the airport! I’m definitely buying my souvenirs here from now on.” This is the sort of positive feedback Tenshodo receives from customers on a daily basis.

6.Sakura Samurai Houses
Numerous old samurai houses still remain in the Sakura City and three of the five samurai residences still standing along the street called Bukeyashiki-dori are currently open to the public.
They are the former Kawara House, a Chiba Prefecture-designated Cultural Asset, the Tajima House, and the Takei House, a Sakura City-designated Cultural Asset. All three of them were constructed in the latter Edo period and inhabited by samurai of the Sakura domain.
The Kawara House, the oldest of samurai houses in Sakura, exhibits furnishings that well represent the lifestyle of the samurai clansmen back in the day. The Tajima House has been at this place since the Edo period, and it is allowed to go inside for a viewing. Inside the Takei House are the excavated artifacts related to samurai houses on display.
The street facing the samurai houses are lined with earthwork and hedges, in which the vestige of the castle town Sakura can be seen.
