LOS ANGELES, Oct. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As Tokyo prepares for their long-awaited dream, the 2020 Summer Olympics, other cities around Japan are not going to sit and watch it on television. At least not Narita City.
Narita City, famous for the Narita International Airport, serves as a gateway for millions of visitors to Japan every year. Most of these visitors are headed for Tokyo, Japan's capital of pop culture, or Kyoto, the historical city filled with beautiful architectures and sightseeing spots.
