This photo was taken a few years ago at one of my favorite places to visit around Narita. I love how this 800 meter long road is filled with many shops, restaurants and side-street vendors. You’ll see a variety of treats from unagi (grilled eel) to yokan (gelled sweet bean treats), senbei (rice crackers made from Chiba rice), teppozuke (pickles made by packing red pepper basil leaves inside a hollowed-out melon), sake, chestnuts and my favorite of all, “Ushimaro”, which is fresh milk from Narita’s Yume Bokujo (Dream Farm) combined with marshmallows. It is absolutely delicious! There’s plenty of souvenir shops as well and I always get googly-eyed when I see anything that’s Hello Kitty :D. I can’t help it! I’ve been collecting Hello Kitty stuff since I was 8 years old and I’m always on the lookout for that new addition to my collection :D. I also read in an article that back in the Edo period, unagi shops were opened to feed the famished pilgrims who walked 64 kilometers from Tokyo to Narita to visit the temple.
