Narita Local Customs

  • Great experience of taking a local tour...

    When I was wondering how to spend a few hours before taking the transit flight to Singapore from Narita, a bellman at Hotel Nikko Narita recommended me to take a three hour local tour by Narita Rainbow Tours. I said I didn't want to spend too much but the cost was something like 25 dollars per person, so instead of wondering around the hotel lobby,...

Narita Warnings and Dangers

  • Harrassment by Japanese Police at Narita...

    The Narita police are notorious for their racist harrassment of foreigners. They never stop Japanese for questioning, only foreigners, and they seem to have a quota that they work through. Plenty of evidence that this is happening, and I have seen it with my own eyes.http://www.debito.org/?p=5901At least ask them to show their ID, which they are...

You can walk around 3am w/o being worried about...

    Do what the Japanese do, and that's pack very light. On the crowded public transport system there's little space for luggage, and very little sympathy for it too. In stations also, you'll find that lifts and escalators are few and far between ..

Narita Tourist Traps

  • Hotel Bar Prices.

    The bar prices in Narita hotels are HIGH. You can buy beer at the local supermarkets for a fraction of the price, or go to some of the local bars that are numerous, far cheaper.The only exception is if you fluke Happy Hour in the hotel bar. This makes some drinks reasonably priced.

    OK... This is what I would call an airport tourist trap. I really don't reccomend buying things and gifts at the shops at the airport. everything is extremely expencive, even postcards. So if you have the oppertunity to buy things in Tokyo only use the airport to buy water and food (oh and Sushi!), or you will find your self poor at the airport...

Narita Off The Beaten Path

  • by kamikawalili Written Dec 6, 2008

    Because I was afraid of going around myself, I took a local tour operated by Narita Rainbow Tours. I was so glad that I took the tour after having been dropped off at the airport for the transit flight in the late afternoon. The charge was more than resonable considering the content of the service provided. The guide was simply superb. The highlight of the tour was at the temple when we were in time for the eleven-o'clock service. He took me right by the altar where ordinary people would have hesitated to sit, to observe a mystic ritual of Goma (fire burning religious ceremony) right in front of my eyes. After the service, I was emotionally overwhelmed with awes.

    Seemed like getting cash in Timbuktu was easier but here if you need cash..get it at one of the airport ATMs on the lower levels or if you are in Narita city at night the 7-11 behind the narita JR station is the best place to get some spending money as not all of the small eateries in Narita take credit cards as I found out one night. You will see...
