    • หรูหรา

    Naritasan Shinshoji Temple is one of the head temples of the Chisan branch of Shingon Buddhism and is dedicated to the deity Acala. The temple, which has been continuing its traditions without extinguishing the fire of rituals for over 1,000 years, is warmly regarded as a place of spiritual energy under the name ‘Narita no Ofudosan’. 

    The Bean Throwing Festival (Setsubun) held every year prays for national peace and a good harvest. It’s a major event, and celebrities such as sumo wrestlers and historical drama actors take part. In Japan, everyone tunes in. The vast precinct also has various beneficial cultural properties including the Great Main Hall (for all benefits), Shakado Hall (good luck and protection), and Komyodo Hall (success in love). Shinshoji Temple became very popular among the common people in the Edo period because the Ichikawa Family of Kabuki actors worshipped here. You can still feel that prosperity now. Naritasan Shinshoji Temple is a 10-minute walk from JR Narita Station or Keisei-Narita Station.

    Check out Nomizono Falls in Shimizu Stream Square in Kimitsu, Chiba, if you’re looking for a place that’s photogenic. The fantastic appearance of the light pouring into the cave, reflecting on the water and rock surfaces, and shining in the shape of a heart is like something from the world of Ghibli movies. 

    This has become a social media sensation. In fact, the correct name of the place where you can see the heart-shaped light is Kameiwa Cave, but it’s generally known as Nomizono Falls. The heart-shaped light is visible only early in the morning due to the angle of the sun, so make sure you get up early to visit. You can also see fireflies around June time. Take a taxi from Kazusa-Kameyama Station on the JR Kururi Line to get here.

    Sawara flourished as a stopping point of Tone River Water Transportation in the Edo period and is lined with historical buildings such as former merchant townhouses alongside Ono River. Back in 1996, it was the 1st place in the Kanto area to be designated as a conservation area for historically important buildings. Here you can take a boat to look around the beautiful riverside town known as Little Edo of Hokuso. 

    You can enjoy the Edo ambience on the popular Little Edo Sawara Boat Tour, which takes in places such as the Former Residence of Tadataka Ino, a famous local figure, and the unusual Ja Bridge where water flows every 30 minutes. You can also enjoy sightseeing seated at a heated table covered with a blanket in winter.

This festival was registered as a UNESCO World Intangible Cultural Heritage Property in 2016. It only takes about 2 hours by highway bus from Tokyo, so it’s a great destination for a day trip.
