Keisei Skyliner is the fastest way to get to Tokyo area from Narita Airport

From Narita Airport, which is in the Southeast of Tokyo, Keisei Skyliner is the fastest way to get to Tokyo area.  I recommend you that you book a hotel in UENO (U・E・NO)  if you're going in and out from Narita.

From January to May, you can walk to Ueno Park, where you will find Cherry blossoms--Sakura-- blooming.

There is also a hotel with PANDA ROOMS.

Shinjuku and Shibuya are commerical districts that you would hardly see any Cherry along the boulvevards.

-----(If you have to change to JR Yamanote Line,  change at NIPPORI STATION)----------------------

When you have to change to JR Yamanote Line, however, transfering  at Nippori Station would be more convenient than  at UENO.  At UENO, you have to go up the escalators from Keisei Ueno Station and walk a while, cross the crowded roads to get to JR Ueno Station, but at Nippori, it's in the same station building.

There is a hotel, which is celebrating there 30 year anniversary,  very close to NIPPORI Station.

-----(Highway buses are also available for Tokyo Station)--------------------------------------------------------

If you can be patient with the traffic jam, there are two highway buses getting to Tokyo/Ginza area, which is just 1000 yen.

KEISEI BUS  (pronounced like K-says)       Press the English button of the following page if necessary

During evening hours, you might get caught in a traffic jam at the highways of Tokyo, but it might be the cheapest way to get to the Tokyo area.

Yoko was very knowledgeable and very patient with my youngest who complained all day about walking. She took us to soo many different sights and taught us about why the Japanese do what they do and showed us how to cleanse ourselves before entering a temple. Sometimes she did walk super fast ahead of us and would be talking so we couldn’t hear but she was overall amazing.

Very friendly and good navigator. I liked her knowledge of current Japanese pop culture and never made me feel stupid for asking questions. She had lots of little tidbits that were helpful, like the story of the 7 thieves. She did seem somewhat flustered by our American habits, I hope she forgives us. She also had to be prompted with questions rather than volunteering the info, perhaps this is cul...

Let me start by saying Yoko speaks English well with little to no accent which is a huge plus in a guide. She is knowledgeable in Japanese history. We spent an entire day with her and she introduced us to the amazing sites at Nikko. If you want to experience Japanese history (2hr trip from Tokyo) a visit to Nikko is a must and you can not go wrong with Yoko.

In my search, I ran across Yoko's profile and messaged her with my plans. She was enthusiastic and ready to accept the task, and she quickly got to work arranging the reservation with the sample shop and building an itinerary to tour...
