Now, this is a word of caution for anyone who wants to eat at Narita Airport before their flight out. Do eat before you go through immigration and not after as there is hardly any restaurants after immigration. We were flying out on a Saturday night and there were like only three eating places, out of which two were already closed by about 8pm. In the end, I settled for this bowl of ramen before flying out. This place is at gate 86 and they opened till later than the others.
If you want to pick up any souvenirs, the shops after immigration are duty-free. The price difference is about 6%. Check with the folks at the shops before immigration if the items are available in the shops after immigration before you buy. The price difference is not great unless you are buying expensive items though.
Thank you for coming with me on the food trail in the land of the Rising Sun.
Sayonara, Nihon. Till next time.
