The city of Narita, Japan is usually the first spot that a person experiences in Japan. They land at Narita Airport (located in Narita City). However, most people make a gigantic mistake by hopping on a train that takes them to Tokyo.
This is a HUGE mistake. Land in Narita and take a complimentary shuttle to a hotel in Narita. Get some dinner and good night sleep. Then, the next morning, see the beautiful city of Narita, Japan.
You will NOT regret it.
