Transport from the airport
From NRT airport to Tokyo station
The most comfortable way to travel between Narita Airport and Tokyo Station is the JR Narita Express (NEX). The one-way journey takes about one hour and costs around £21. It's fully covered by the Japan Rail Pass, JR Tokyo Wide Area Pass, and some other JR passes. The trains depart every 30 to 60 minutes.
From NRT to Tokyo city by taxi
Because Narita is so far from Tokyo, a taxi into the city is an expensive option. A regular taxi will cost around £146 and take between 65 and 85 minutes, depending on the destination and traffic.
Train tickets at Narita Airport
You can buy tickets at Narita Airport station, JR Ticket Offices (Midori-no-madoguchi), Travel Service Centers (View Plaza), and reserved seat ticket machines. Reservations can be made from overseas through JR-EAST Train Reservation, though conditions apply for prior day purchases.
Public transport in Japan
- There are three different ways to ride the JR trains in Japan. The first is to buy a ticket every time you ride a train, the second is to put money onto your IC card (Suica or Pasmo), and the last method is to use a free pass, such as the Japan Rail Pass.
- Most of the city subway (Tokyo Metro, for example) tickets cost around £3 for a single trip, but the price varies by distance and may be higher if you're traveling far.
Cost of living
If you're coming to Japan as a tourist, student, or worker, you'll need between £37 and £125 per day of spending money in 2021.
