Transportation from Narita International Airport to Tokyo
foreign visitors will arrive at the Tokyo International Airport
in Narita, which is some distance away from the metropolis of Tokyo to the
east. You can take either a bus or a train from the airport to the central
part of Tokyo.
- Limousine bus services are available from the airport. They connect to major hotels in Tokyo. You can ask the clerk of the bus service concerning which buses stop near your hotel and the most convenient place where you can get off to get to your hotel. The fare is about 5,000 yen one way.
- Two train lines operate between the airport and Tokyo. One is the Japan Railroad (JR) Line and the other is the Keisei Line. Both lines have frequent "limited-express" trains which connect the airport and downtown Tokyo. It takes about 60-90 minutes. The limited-express trains have reserved seating only. You need to purchase a reserved seat ticket for these trains at the JR or Keisei ticket counter before boarding. The ticket counters and train platforms are located underground in the airport terminals. The fare for the JR's limited-express train is about 5,000 yen to Tokyo, one way. The Keisei fare is less. The JR's Narita Express is available on every 30 minute. http://www.jreast.co.jp/e/nex/index.html
