Arriving and leaving Tokyo: from and to airport

The international airport of Tokyo is Narita Airport, with several different ways to reach Tokyo
(http://www.narita-airport.jp/en/access/). Note that it locates almost 100 kms away from the city, so I
don’t recommend using a taxi. The best connections to the city:

The Keisei electric railway

The Keisei electric railway

Keisei Electric Railways:
Skyliner (41 min to Ueno, 47 min to Tokyo station)
2470 yen to Ueno (need reseravation!)
