Best transport option:Narita to Shinjuku 2006/3/13 14:07
Hi, We have 4 persons travelling in a group from Narita airport to Shinjuku. Limousine bus will cost 3000yen*4. Will it be cheaper to travel by taxi instead? Can anyone tell me what is the estimation cost by taxi? Or is there a better cost savings option?

The taxi will be evenmore expensive. The cheapest way is by Keisei Limited Express to Nippori and then by Yamanote Line to Shinjuku:

Victor,

The option of Keisei Limited Express + JR Yamanote Line mentioned by Uji above is the cheapest way, but I wouldn't really recommend it if you have suitcases with you and you are tired after a long flight. The JR Narita Express goes directly to Shinjuku, so is much more convenient. Depending on where you are staying, the Airport Limousine bus might even take you directly to the hotel.

Hi Dave,

thanks for the reply, it helps alot in my planning. the price of JR Narita Express and Limousine bus are the same. guess i will choose Limousine bus.

1)Will the Train from Narita to Shinjuku be very pack?

No.

2)If i have luggage with me, is it adviceable?

The main differences to the Narita Express are:

1) You have to change trains once

2) You sit perpendicular to the driving direction rather than in the driving direction (The seat in the Keisei Limited Express are, like in most Japanese commuter trains, arranged along the wall of the train).
