11 hour NRT Tokyo Layover…Asakusa or Narita Town?

Jump to last reply

Our upcoming trip (2 more weeks!) starts with an afternoon arrival in Hong Kong where we’ll go into Kowloon and stay overnight (eat, sleep, etc.), then we have 7 nights in Phuket & Phi Phi, and 4 nights in Ubud, Bali. On our way back to LAX, we have this 11 hour layover in Tokyo and we want to take full advantage of it. I understand that if we go into the Asakusa area, it can eat up about 5 hours (getting out of customs, train to city, train back to airport to arrive 2 hours before our flight out). But that still leaves us 6 hours of wandering around.

If you had six hours, would you spend it in Tokyo or opt for 7-8 hours in Narita instead? Is that too much time for Narita? Should we add something else to it? BTW, we arrive at the airport at 6:30am, so will there even be anything open in Narita at that time?

We want to be back at the airport at 3:30pm for a 5:30pm flight out.

Our hopes are to eat lots of sushi and noodles and any other interesting food, visit a fish market, tea house, temple, shop for souvenirs, take lots of pics, and basically just absorb the culture. Pretty much I want to experience enough to convince my husband to come back and make Japan as its own trip ;)
