Travel to Asakusa hotel from Narita 2019/10/15 11:52
Hi,
We'll be arriving at Narita 2 around 17:30 and I'm trying to decide on the best way to get to our hotel (Hotel Gracery Asakusa).

The hotel is close to the Asakusa station, so I thought that the Access Express might be a good option. There's a departure at 18:40 which seems to transit through Keisei-Takasago and require a transfer at Aoto.

Can I please check that we simply stay on the train as it transits through Keisei-Takasago? Also, is it possible to use the Pasmo/Suica card for this train, or do we need to purchase a special ticket?

Another option is to take the Skyliner to Ueno, and then either take a cab or subway to the hotel. Would you recommend this rather than the Access Express?
Many thanks for your help!

Dear Brisben,

I had play a little bit with google maps an found these option for you:

At 18:03 (or 18:23) with "Keisei Line" (Limited Express, direction to Nishi-Magome) for 59 min./ 13 Stops to Aoto Station.
Than you STAY in the same train, which changes automatically to "Keisei-Oshiage Line" (direction to Nishi-Magome) for 7 Min./direct to Oshiage Station SKYTREE.
You STAY further in the same train which changes now to "Asakusa Line" (direction to Nishi-Magome) for 3 min./ 2 Stops to Asakusa Station.

You can use your PASMO or SUICA Card.

Please keep in mind, that at Asakusa Station only the Exit A2B has a Lift. The other Stations have only Stairs!
But your Hotel lies near this Station, so oyu donLt have a long way from this exit.

I like Asakusa a lot! Have a nice trip! :-)

Many Greetings,
Vio

A more important one is a Japanese identity.

Tokyo symbol, Tokyo station. A tour of the Japanese Imperial Palace. Both are free to touch the heart of Japan.

If you donft mind paying a little more, I recommend the Keisei Skyliner and then a short taxi to your hotel. Itfs a large comfortable train with room for luggage and a very fast trip into Ueno (right next to asakusa).

The taxi ride should only be 1000-1500 yen and they will know exactly where your hotel is vs wandering a massive foreign city with luggage.

Asakusa station is also really confusing as it is really 3 different stations spread over a couple large city blocks.

Either way, Asakusa is a great area to stay in and youfll have a wonderful time.

I'll certainly think about the Skyliner. It's a good point about finding the hotel. Thanks for your advice!

If you do plan to use taxi, I would recommend carrying a printout with the Hotel name and street address in Japanese to give the driver. Not all taxi drivers are fluent in English, or may have difficulty with your pronunciation.
