If you have a bit more time...
The old merchant town of Sawara is located about 15 kilometers from Narita Airport and can be reached in under an hour from Narita on the train, which will pass through countless rice fields.
The area has retained the old canals and merchant homes from 200 years ago when it was a major transportation hub.
This is how Edo (old name for Tokyo) might have looked like too. Unfortunately, the canals in Tokyo were filled in during the post-war modernization, but Sawara has been able to keep its old looks.
How we get there: There are 1-2 trains every hour leaving from Narita Station. The train fare is 670 yen one-way.
Rates: 25,000 yen for up to 4 people.
