Narita Airport is the gateway to the nation’s capital – Tokyo. The side locates about 60 km northeast of the central Tokyo and relatively far.
There are several options to get to the central Tokyo from Narita Airport, by train (JR Line or Keisei Line) or by limousine bus. Of course it depends on what time will you take the trains (or buses) and which place in Tokyo will you leave for, but usually the fastest way is by Narita Express (JR Line) and it takes about 60 min. and costs 2,940yen.

Today Keisei Line announced that they would launch new train service, connecting Narita airport and the central Tokyo (UENO station) in 36 min., which would shorten the current travel hour in about half. The ticket will be 2400yen. That’s a good news, maybe. New train service will start in July 2010.
