This is behind the Narita Shinshoji main hall. Can you see inside the pagoda first floor from outside. It was a very quiet day when I went, there was almost no one. I guess most tourists focus on the front (Shinshoji), so it was a great time to take good photo. I walked down the long flight of stairs in front of the pagoda to the pond and had a very good view scenic view of the pagoda and fall colors. It's a nice quiet stroll for me. Since it's free and not far from the main temple ground, I think it's worth walking to the pagoda if you were already at the main temple hall.

And the long walk thru the temple forest to reach the pond below the Great Pagoda of Peace is a most fitting and peaceful way to reach the G P of P. Don't take the short route directly from the main temple area.

Most visitors stop at the entrance to the temples and gardens this requires some walking and steps but it is worth the trip. Access is easiest from the main entrance if you head left, its much quicker and with no steep inclines or steps. I recommend turning right though, and enjoying the walk through the gardens and the past the ponds. On a sunny day against the blue sky it makes for an imposing sight. There are several other temples around the pagoda making this a great spot for photographers.

This is a site for peace which would impact more with English translations. We saw people writing and it would have increased our understanding if we knew why. I think too many move on too quickly because of this.

Anyone with several hours to kill before a flight should head to Naritasan - the Great Pagoda of Peace is lovely (as is everything else in the complex).

The temple and its complex in Narita are beautiful. The outdoor museum which creates a replica of old houses and workshops in Tokyo was very interesting.

In comparison to the other temple buildings within the Naritasan complex, this is a little underwhelming for a passing tourist.It is not as attractive as the Three-Storied Pagoda nor the maind building of the temple. However, it's purpose as a place to pray for peace is commendable, and I'm sure believers find it an awesome place to visit. The gardens, lake, fountain and waterfall in the general vicinity are also lovely to visit.

When walking through the temple gardens you will come across this amazing Pagoda. It's well worth the walk!

It is located in the grounds of Shinshoji Temple, at the very back after climbing the stairs. The Great Peace Pagoda stands out even from afar, but it is spectacular up close. I didn't go inside, just enjoyed the exterior. It is a large site with Naritasan Park, so it is best to wear comfortable shoes.
