If you will be traveling to and from Japan via Narita Airport, then we strongly recommend arriving there early before your departure in order to do some souvenir shopping!

We recommend this because Narita Airport has its own shopping mall in it. It wouldn't be exaggerating to say that they have everything here either; shops selling popular character goods for children, Japanese traditional food items like green tea, Japanese sake, and sweets, electronics, cosmetics, clothing, Japanese variety goods and much more await you here.

Since there is a free shuttle bus between terminals, you can freely go back and forth to the different shopping areas, and, as many of the shops take credit cards, international travelers can safely shop here with ease.

By saving your souvenir hunt for the airport, you can sightsee without being burdened by shopping bags during your time in Japan!

Those looking for more information about Narita Airport's facilities should refer to: From Free SIMs to LCC, Shuttle Buses And Free Transit Tours: Complete Guide To Narita Airport.
