Minibus taxis at Narita Airport 2018/6/1 00:49
Hello everyone!
Does anyone know if it's possible to find a minibus taxi at Narita Airport? We are a group of six who are traveling to Japan for the first time. Don't want to use public transport as we have lots of bags.

If you want transport from airport right to hotel for a group, there are companies like this: http://www.tokyoairporter.com/fares.html

It's 21000y for an 8 seater.


Narita is a long way from Tokyo (1-2 hours depending on traffic), so cabs are very expensive.

So you are coming from Croatia. Nice place. It's not so popular in Japan, but is also very popular among Japanese who loves travel abroad, like me:).

You can take minibus taxi (in Japan it's sometimes called "Jumbo Taxi", probably coming form the nickname for Boeing 747) from many companies.

This company shows rather low rate, 16,000 to 22,000 yen (plus toll road fee) depending on your destination. You can e-mail them for the request.

Tokyo Airporter has English site. It is slightly more expensive (21,000) but if your destination is in Shinjuku ward, it is slightly cheaper.

Thank you guys for your answers!)
On another forum, we were recommended this service https://kiwitaxi.com/en/japan (it is not a local one). But these prices seem to be rather high.

We examined this website http://www.tokyoairporter.com/fares.html, as well. Think it's quite a good one.

We also thought about the Hoppa transfer company, but it doesn't provide minibuses from Narita Airport.

You might also try the "Airport Limousine" service that uses coach buses from the airport to various hotels in Tokyo. Luggage is loaded under the bus so you don't have to drag it with you. Though it may cost about the same for 6 people? Here is the link: https://www.limousinebus.co.jp/en/

Groups arriving at Narita have lots of bags and the huge majority use the train or bus. Usually only very rich people that like to spend money use a taxi because it is expensive and a long way (a seriously long way). The trains and buses are designed for airline passengers with bags - they are not commuter buses and even on the local train (rather than the express), suitcases are ok.
If you have too many cases per person, travel with less - far too many people bring unnecessary huge cases and too much stuff.

Normally I would agree, but if 6 people can share a taxi, it's not really any more expensive than the N'EX or a limo bus and it goes door to door.

I wouldn't agree that taxis are for the rich. When we traveled to other countries with a large group, in most cases it was more cost-effective to reserve a minibus than using public transportation. Each of us paid the same money or even less, but the comfort level was considerably higher.
We could also take two normal taxis (which usually accommodate 3 passengers), but that would be much more expensive than taking one minibus. That's why we're looking for one.

I strongly support Japan custom tour,public transportation is much more affordable than minibus or taxi.Tokyo shuttle cost900@6 person =5400 yen From narita to Tokyo.where minibus cost at least 30000 yen.Good luck.
