Travel between Narita Airport to Tokyo / Shinjuku - Tokyo, Japan

Tokyo has 2 airports which are Narita Airport and Haneda Airport. Haneda Airport mostly is domestic flight and Narita Airport is for international flights. There are many ways to access to central Tokyo from Narita Airport which are train, bus and taxi. In my opinion, train is the most convenient for me and of course, the fare is higher than taking the bus but still cheaper than taking the taxi.


1. NEX (Narita Express)

NEX is included in JR Pass. It is fast and can access to main station in central Tokyo such as Tokyo Station, Shinagawa Station, Shinjuku Station. If you use JR Pass, no need to pay any additional charge but must reserve the seat. If you don't have JR Pass, you can buy the ticket at the station. It often has the promotional price. You can stow the luggage at the back of each carriage.
