If you have time, stroll down the high street to the magnificent temple gardens (Top
image). These are shut after sunset so you might consider spending a second night in
Narita to see them. You could also take a trip into Tokyo. As always, surf the net to
find places to stay.
I have friends who left well-paid jobs in Tokyo for a more relaxed lifestyle but
they make frequent trips back. Itâ€™s a great place to visit. Whether you are a
teenage tearaway or a serious-minded intellectual, youâ€™ll not be disappointed.
Thereâ€™s a lot to turn you on so long as you have time to enjoy it.
When my wife and I go to Tokyo we generally stay in one of the many inns that
specialise in taking foreign guests . On our last two visits we stayed in Asakusa.
Thatâ€Ÿs a famous temple area and it has a lot of character. Iâ€Ÿm reminded of parts of
London that have retained something of their Cockney heritage. There are stalls
selling things, guys with rickshaws, priests, nuns and girls in kimonos.
