Tokyo has two main airports: Narita International Airport (NRT), in Chiba prefecture, which primarily handles international air traffic and is the arrival point for most foreign visitors, and Haneda Airport ( HND), located in a more central location, which deals mainly with domestic air traffic and a smaller number of international flights.
At Narita Airport there are many facilities to make your transit comfortable, such as showers, rest rooms, a capsule hotel, luggage delivery service, a post office, and rest rooms. One thing you may want to do while at the airport is rent a pocket WIFI, which will keep you connected to the internet throughout your trip.
The airport consists of 3 terminals, of which terminals 1 and 2 have their own train stations from which the city of Narita and Tokyo can be reached. Taking the train to Tokyo is one of the easiest ways to get there, but you can also opt for the limousine bus or if you are on a high budget for a taxi. Note that taking a taxi from Narita airport to a hotel in central Tokyo will easily cost you around $ 200.
Narita Airport is located about 60 km outside of Tokyo, in the city of Narita. If you have a stop in Narita of at least 4 hours, you can visit the nearby town of Narita which is only 15 minutes away by train. If your stop is at least 6 hours, it would be a waste not to take this opportunity to visit Tokyo, as the fastest train will only take a little over an hour to get you into the center of this bustling metropolis. If you really want to make the most of your layover time, consider hiring a private guide to pick you up at the airport or meet you at Tokyo Station and show you some of the top sights and hidden local treasures.
