Kashima Jingu is within a huge area of natural forrest in which there are many beautiful old cedar trees. It is about one hour by local train from Narita Station and worth a visit if you have a spare day.

The Katori shrine, or Katori Jingu as it is known is an ancient shrine of the Shinto order said to have been started over two and a half thousand years ago. The Honten and other structures have been rebuilt many times over the centuries. The current structures were built around 1700 AD.
I went to Katori in February. I took a train from Narita to Sawara. After looking around in Sawara, and lunch there I asked how to get to Katori Jingu. A tourist office (no one spoke English) pointed and gestured for me to take a taxi from Sawara station.
Once there, the first thing you see is a wooden gateway with a forested area behind. Through the gateway is a path through the woods, sloping upwards with carved stone pillars on both sides. Inside there's a set of steps leading to the main temple.
The temple is a black wood structure and is beautiful.
Getting back was a problem. There was no taxi and no one around spoke English. I got to the nearby Katori station but there was no one there and no ticket machine or counter.
After waiting half an hour and seeing no one around, I saw a sign on the railway platform pointing in the direction of Sawara town. I walked for an hour till I got to Sawara station.
I was told later that I could have boarded a train at Katori and bought the ticket on arrival at Narita (information not confirmed)
I also found out later there are local busses from Sawara station passing the shrine, both ways.

In early June, the lovely Itako Riverside Iris Park in Itako, Ibaraki sees about 1 million irises bloom in 500 varieties. To celebrate, the Suigo Itako Iris Festival has been held from late May to late June every year since 1952. During the festival, a variety of events unique to Itako are held, such as the Yomeiri-Bune ("Bride on a Boat"), mentioned in the 1960 hit song "Itako Hanayome-san," and the traditional Ayame Dance (Dance of the Irises). The festival also features the Ro-bune rowboats, used as transportation since ancient times, providing plenty of opportunities to sightsee along the Mae River.
