From Web_page of Naritasan Shinshoji
http://www.naritasan.or.jp/index2.html

In Japan, we visit shrines or temples for the happiness and safety of the year as a custom of New Year. We call this gHatsumodeh.

In Chiba Prefecture, gNaritasan Shinshojih in Narita City is famous and from January 1 to 3 in 2007 2.9 million people went there for gHatsumodeh.

In this temple there are a lot of precious structures, including gHondoh (the main structure) with a peculiar big gshimenawah (sacred shinto straw festoon). And gNaritasan Koenh (park) is situated in the other side gDai-hondoh (the big main structure). In addition, you can enjoy visiting a lot of souvenir shops and restaurants of Japanese or foreign dish on the road of around 1km from Narita Station of Keisei Line or JR since there is an international airport in Narita.

It takes around 1 hour from Funabashi to Narita. You can get detailed information about gNaritasan Shinshojih ((0476-22-2111) in the homepage http://www.naritasan.or.jp/index2.html

So why donft you visit there?
