Best train line in from Narita From to the Airport Review

If you think of your options to get into Tokyo as rather similar to buying Japansese electrical products like DVD players then you will get the idea that they will all do the same job reliably - you just pay more for nicer design and added extas.

The JR Narita expess is the top-notch 'Sony' product - sleek, expensive (3000yen) and quick (60 mins)

Their other airport service is slower (the Panasonic model) by about 20 minutes and 700 yen cheaper. I would only use a JR service if you have already bought a JR pass which can be validated at the airport.

The Showy alternative is the 'Skytrain' (JVC model) that runs on the Keisei line. Similar speed at the JR Narita express but comes in at 2000 Yen.

For those who don't want to waste their money just to save a few minutes the Keisei line also has local trains (Sanyo perhaps ?) that are basically just metro trains, rather than inter-city type ones (90 minutes +). These come in at around 1000 yen

Don't even think about the bus - it's 3000 yen.
