Keisei Skyliner is the fast 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.

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.

“ You need a guide in Tokyo and Yoko is great ”

Excellent
2 weeks ago Traveler: Bill -   Tour Guide: Yoko

The 1st thing to Understand is that Tokyo is huge and you really maximize your time by having a guide taking you to the places you want to see in the most efficient manner. 2nd - English is a very distant 2nd language - so if you can’t speak Japanese you will get frustrated without a guide. 3rd - Japan is very formal and generally speaking reserved. I found Yoko via a search and spent a conside...

We were interested in a cultural and historical overview of Tokyo and Yoko delivered the most delightful day-long private tour. We not only visited temples, shrines, gardens, historical districts and architecture, but Yoko explained the tradition and meaning behind everything we saw. This was primarily a walking tour, but Yoko helped us cover a great deal of territory using the subways. An excepti...

Yoko is very knowledgeable and flexible in her schedule. We were a group of four and she was able to keep the tour interesting.

Riding the metro train during the busiest time of the day was an interesting experience. With Yoko's help, we ...

Yoko was very helpful and informative throughout.

My friend and I wanted to do some sightseeing outside of Tokyo during the last couple of days of our trip. After consulting with Yoko, we selected a day trip to Kamakura as Nikko would be too busy during the Kouyo (leaf changing) season. Neither of us had visited Kamakura before, so we were hoping to see some places that we couldn’t see by researching the city online prior to our visit. Yoko-...

“ Great day in Tokyo! ”

Excellent
4 months ago Traveler: SALIK -   Tour Guide: Yoko

I had a wonderful first full day because Yoko made everything less daunting. I highly recommend her as a private guide as she is fluent in English and knows how to balance visits to culturally enriching sites as well as commercial areas. I would advise everyone to be ready to walk a lot if you want to make the most of this tour.
