From Narita Airport to Tokyo Station
So once you’ve flown to Narita Airport. There are 3 ways to get to Tokyo Station, one of the largest train station in Japan, where you will catch a connecting bullet train, also known as Shinkansen 新幹線 to Nagano.
Note: It is about 70km between the airpot and Tokyo Station. Taxis are not a realistic option. They will cost you a lot of money and not recommended!
I’ve just mentioned of 3 ways of getting there. 1 is by bus, the others are by train.
- Airport Limousine Bus
- JR Narita Express
- JR Access Narita Bus
1, Airport Limousine Bus
They have a network of buses connecting the airport and Tokyo and the surrounding area. Most of the times during the day they have a bus departing to one destination every 20-30min.
Here is the link to their website: Airport Limousine Bus
Adult Fare: 3100 Yen (Kids Half Price)
Duration: 75-125 min depending on the road conditions
You will find their counter once you walk out of the customs, before you walk out of the terminal building..
2, JR Narita Express
This is run by JR East (Japan Railway East). It’s a lot quicker and I personally prefer this to the bus. Just a personal opinion.
The Link: Narita Express
Adult Fare: 3020 Yen
Duration: 60-70 min
You should find their counter right next to the buses.
3, JR Access Narita Bus
This is kind of a new service, (I personally have not used this service yet but I know a fee friends who were happy with this) and just like airlines, this is a LCC, in other words CHEAPER!
You don’t need to buy a ticket in advance, you just pay when you get on board a bus. That’s different!
The Link: Access Narita
Adult Fare: 1000 Yen
Duration: 80-100 min
So have a good night sleep in Tokyo after a long flight, and I’ll see you on the next post to get to Nagano.
Tokyo Wa Sugoi Desu とうきょうはすごいです = Tokyo is awesome!
Mata-Ne またね (See you again)!
