10 Must Do Things in Narita


Eat grilled eel over rice at ” Kawatoyo “

As you walk along “Omote-sando”, the approach street to the Shinsho-ji temple, you can see the sight of cutting eels at the store.

Skilled cook steam and grill fresh eel with a secret sause, and lightly finished.

Built in 1917, the traditional Japanese-style house of “Kawatoyo Honten” makes you feel as if you were back in time.

In particular, the seats by the window on the second floor are the best position overlooking the street of “Omotesando.”

Japanese style Cafe “Miyoshiya”

“Miyoshiya” is a pure Japanese-style cafe specializing in food, tea, and garden.

While walking along Omotesando, there is a store in the back of the alley where you might pass by.

The best recommendation is “Cream Anmitsu”. There are many beverage menus, but these might not be neccesary because the dessert comes with delicious Hojicha tea and pickles.

Sweet red-beans, rice flour dumplings, agar, ice cream, rice cakes are delicious and traditional Japanese style. The vessel is also cute, and you can enjoy the space where the flow of time has stopped for a while while looking at the Japanese-style garden.

Narita Fireworks in Lake Imba

Homemade cakes of authentic Italian restaurant “Anton”

There is a popular Italian restaurant “Anton” in Kozu-no-mori one stop taking the Keisei Railway from Narita Station and at the foot of Kozu. It is a popular restaurant that is always full and must be reserved, but there are actually many customers who come for cakes. When you eat cakes in the restaurant, it comes on a plate with fruit, but you can also take it out.

The best recommendation is a freshly prepared crunchy millefeuille. The combination of solid puff pastry and rich custard cream is not too sweet. We also recommend a mousse cake with a refreshing lemon flavor.

Meat and fish dishes using seasonal ingredients are also very delicious, so please try the à la carte menu with the cake. Also lunch has started recently.
