Late landing at Narita

by ronco123

I'm expected to land at Narita airport at 21:25 (arriving from HKG). Assuming it may take more than one hour to pass immigration, baggage claim, and money exchange - is it still possible to get into the city by train or bus?
I planned to book a hotel in the city, but it now seems that I should spend the first night at the airport... :(
Any recommendation for a hotel at Narita? How complicated is it to get from the Terminal to that hotel?

(as you probably understand, this is going to be my first time in Japan...)

Thanks!

Not a problem, you have lots of time. The last Airport bus leaves the airport for Tokyo Station (just as an example) at 1 am. Arriving at 9:30 pm, you will have lots of time, and many buses, to choose from.

Taking the train is tricky and it takes a hour to get out of the airport, baggage claim and customs,immergration etc. and to take the bus to the station, so I would take the airport bus out to the hotel. I stayed in Narita town and thought it was boring. Cheers Tommy x

Getting to Tokyo might be a bit stressful at that time. You should be able to make it, but it's tight. Assuming that your flight is probably the only one arriving at that time, I'd say you can get through within an hour. The trains should be okay, and the buses stop around 11pm. If you are really worried, just book a hotel and take off early in the morning. Head straight to your second hotel and drop your bags off there and have fun. You'll have to choose between peace of mind and chance. Getting to the city shouldn't be hard. Even if you take a taxi into Narita, it's not THAT expensive.

Another FYI, the very last train to Tokyo is at 2305 from Narita Airport to Tokyo Station. It arrives at 2420, with no time to transfer. You'll have to walk... or take a taxi if your hotel is somewhere else.

I agree that the train is pretty simple and much nicer, but if your hotel isn't near the station, it's sometimes better to take the bus. For example, I saw a guy decide to wait over an hour for a train to Ikebukuro for the ease of transfers rather than leaving earlier and for a transfer that's door to door. Of course, it depends on the station and hotel. If you are trying to save money, it's more complicated on the local lines, but not that difficult either.

The limousine bus works great, but you may not make it.
Narita express train is easy to get on, the station is right at the airport, but it doesn't look like you'll make it. (See the time table: http://jreast-shinkansen-reservation.eki-net.com/pc/english/common/timetable/e_nex_u/07.html)

As the last resort, you could take a taxi to your hotel. They have a fixed rate from Narita to Tokyo. The fee depends on which zone your hotel is in, but usually between US$150-$200.

Thanks all for your quick help.
I decided to stay the first night in Narita city (one train to Narita city still runs after 11pm, worst case I'll take a taxi). I assume I wasn't going to see much of Tokyo on the first night if I get there after midnight and long flights. In the morning I'll head to Tokyo.

Travel Tips for Tokyo

Roppongi

by El_Cookie

I was in Japan for the world cup of soccer in 2002. I stayed in Nagoya the days I didn't have tickets to the games. I traveled from Miyagi in the north to Oita in the south. Best tip I can give you is "get the rail pass" if you are there for 10 days but don't want to buy the pass for 14 days and only buy it for 7 days to save money "DON"T DO IT" spend the extra money it will save you money. I learned this the hard way. Thanks to Northwest 's flight delay we landed there 4 hours late and we had to spend about $80 on a train ticket to get us from Osaka to Nagoya....it was the last train and it was a luxury train.. Our rail pass wasn't useable till the next day.

PURIKURA!

by kat_on_moray

Purikura (photo machines) were a major fad about five years ago! They still remain a fun way to capture a part of your day out in Tokyo. You can find them inside any video game arcade....they cost between 300 to 400 yen and will be something that you can keep forever!!!

the Highways of Tokyo

by machomikemd

what the difference of the highways of tokyo from other areas? well aside from being very clean, the highways of tokyo are multivel, i mean mutilevel wherein sometimes there will be 2 or three elevated lanes going at the same direction and also on opposite direction and some are situated above rivers wherein they are constructed above the rivers and follow it's course. another peculiar thing about the japanese highways is that many sections have tolls and i mean many unlike in other areas where only a handful of highways have tolls. a basic toll charge here is about 700 yen and goes up when you are driving a van or a truck so many people really use the public transport instead of using cars to drive in tokyo so you now know that tokyo has high gas prices and many toll roads so it is more practical to take the efficient and cheap public transport around tokyo right! again very expensive gas and expensive tolls on highways!

Royce Chocolates

by machomikemd

Royce chocolates are the true luxe Japanese chocolate brand (comparable to the Godiva and Varlrhona brand of France and Belgium) while the Meiji Chocolates which is one of their competitors and is more known around Asia is the more affordable brand. Royce factories are in Sapporo but they have many branches around japan and in the asian region. Royce is a true chocolate lovers delight and they have many kinds of chocolate confectionaries but the most popular would be the Nama Chocolate Brand (melt in your mouth chocolates that is kept refrigerated and placed in a thermal cooler with synthethic dry ice for transport upon buying and they have many flavors like champaigne or grand marnier or gran cru) and their chocolate dipped potato chips. Other brands of Royce include: Dacquoise, Financier, Lurumaro Chocola, Madeleines, Nutty Bar Chocolate, Petite Truffe, Royce' Chocolate Bars, and Royce' Pure Chocolate. well for fans of Luxe Chocolates like me, this is pure chocolate heaven! for me, Royce Chocolates especially the Nama Brand are better than Godiva or Varlrhona. A Box of the Nama Chocolates costs 660 yen plus 100 yen for the thermal cooler pack with the synthethic dry ice that keeps the chocolates cold for at least 5 hours and the potato chip chocolates costs 900 yen a box.

at the Narita Airport Terminal 1, it is available at “Blue Sky Shop Gate 63”, near gate 63 at departure area.
