Good Eats around Naritasan Temple

Previously we introduced the Naritasan Temple promenade, but there are also a variety of great foods found between Narita Station and Naritasan Shinshoji Temple. Here are some recommendations for when you are in the area.

When you say Narita, famous Unagi Eel comes to mind. There are so many places to get the dish that it can be daunting trying to decide. This time we traveled to Surugaya. Like Kawatoyo, you can also expect a line. Today we waited about an hour and a half.
Finally, we were seated on the 2nd floor with bamboo flooring. The menu we received was in Japanese, I am unsure whether there is an English menu.

This is the broiled eel served over rice with a side of eel-liver soup and pickled vegetables for 3600 JPY (including Tax). There is also a special set of the broiled eel and liver soup 4950 JPY (including tax).

Next up we went looking for a café. There are many long-standing shops along the Naritasan Temple promenade.One of which, GodoDangoya, has been in business since 1845. The shop offers both tatami and table seating.

Since long ago, themochi (crushed rice) used for making the handmade dango (skewered rice dumplings) has been made fresh each morning.You can taste the freshness in each chewy bite.

This time we ordered a colorful arrangement of dango made from that very mochi.

The dango above including the one with anko bean paste, WarabiMochi, Tokoroten, pickles, and tea, was all 700 JPY.

For only 700 JPY, what a great value!!
During the summer, we also suggest their shaved ice.

Also on the promenadeis Ramen Bayashi, a ramen shop ranked as Trip Advisor’s number 1 shop in the Narita area.
The place is always bustling with tourists from all over.

Inside there is both counter and table seating. When we visited, the place was packed full. I heard that it is a favorite among the airline staff landing in Narita.
This time I went with the Shisen Pork Cutlet for 950 JPY. It was a little bit spicy. For seafood lovers and fans of tonkotsu pork, it might not be enough to hit the spot. However, it is a great place to get a taste of historic ramen.

I hope you enjoyed this entry.
Of course, there are still many more shops to explore. This time we could only introduce a small fraction of what is out there. If you visit the Narita area, be sure to seek out those gourmet experiences!
