Known as the gateway to Japan, Narita International Airport serves 7.5 million passengers a year. Most people think that Narita International Airport is in Tokyo. However, this is actually a big misunderstanding. The airport is, in fact, next to Tokyo in the City of Narita. The mascot of Narita City, Unari-kun, is an eel-airplane hybrid character representing Narita International Airport and the freshwater eels of Narita, particularly the eel products surrounding Naritasan Shinshoji Temple.
