You don’t know the location of the airport to each place of Tokyo!

First, let’s grasp the positional relationship on the route map!

NaritaAirport→Tokyo Access Guide

Narita Airport is a little far from Tokyo, abt.1~2hours by train or car.

▼ This is a feature of each transportation.

  1. N’EX (NaritaExpress JR)
    You can get to the main stations in Tokyo quickly without changing trains, but it is the most expensive train trip.
  2. SKYLINER (Keisei Line)
    You can get to Tokyo the fastest, but the main station is only Nippori or Ueno in Tokyo, you will have to change trains to move to Tokyo.
  3. Local Train (JR or Keisei Line)
    Cheaper than the above two but it takes longer.
  4. Bus
    Depending on the destination, it is cheaper than the train and without changing buses, but it takes the longest time.
  5. Uber
    It’s easy to get to your destination without any transfers, but the price is quite high.
