First, please look at the following two maps. They will give you
the minimum information you need to reach your hotel and the
Narita Airport and General Ways to Central Tokyo
Narita airport (New Tokyo International airport) is about 70 km
from central Tokyo. You will arrive at one of the two terminals
depending on your airline company.
From both terminals, there are direct trains and buses bound for
central Tokyo. It takes about 60-90 minutes. Here, we show three
typical ways from Narita airport to central Tokyo.
(1) Take Keisei Railways Skyliner
express and go to Ueno station. It costs about 2000 yen. There are
also limited express trains without seat reservation, which costs
about 1000 yen, but we recommend to use Skyliner since it is much more
comfortable and worth extra charge.
(2) Take JR (Japan Railway Company) Narita Express and go to Tokyo station. It costs about 3000 yen.
(3) Take Airport Limousine bus and go to Tokyo station (or other places). It costs about 3000 yen.
Tokyo station is the main station in Tokyo and located near the
Imperial Palace and government offices, while Ueno station is located
in the downtown area, and is slightly closer to the conference
From Narita Airport to Official Hotels
Here we show you the easiest way to each hotel.
(1) For those who stay at Tokyo Dome Hotel and
Suidobashi Grand Hotel (Japanese
page): There are direct Airport Limousine buses to Tokyo Dome
Hotel. Suidobashi Grand Hotel is located close to Tokyo Dome
Hotel. Therefore, using the Limousine Bus is the easiest. If you miss
the direct bus, go to Tokyo or Ueno station and take a taxi.
(2) For those who stay at Tokyo Yayoi Kaikan (Japanese
page): It is the easiest to use
Skyliner express of Keisei railway and go to Keisei Ueno
station. Tokyo Yayoi Kaikan is located at the other side of the Ueno
park. Take a taxi, or walk through the park (about 12 minutes) to
Tokyo Yayoi Kaikan.
(3) For those who stay at Forest
Hongo: Go to either (a) Tokyo station by JR Narita express or
Airport Limousine bus,
(b) Ueno station by Keisei Skyliner, or (c) Tokyo Dome Hotel
by Limousine bus. Then, take a taxi. If you prefer not to use a taxi,
go to Tokyo station, take Metro Marunouchi-line from Tokyo
(M17) to Hongo-sanchome (M21), and walk.
Note: M17 and M21 are the symbols assigned to eash subway station and are used in the subway route map.
From Official Hotels to Conference Site
The workshop is held at the Takeda Hall of the Tokyo University. If
you stay at Forest Hongo or Tokyo Yayoi Kaikan, just walk to the
conference site. If you stay at Tokyo Dome Hotel or Suidobashi Grand
Hotel, you can still walk (about 30 minutes), but taking Metro
Namboku-line from Korakuen station (N11) to Todaimae station (N12)
will make your trip easier, as shown in the access map.
Note: N11 and N12 are the symbols assigned to eash subway station and are used in the subway route map.
In Tokyo, subway stretches like a spider web, and you can go
almost everywhere by subway. There are two subway companies, Tokyo Metro and Toei, Tokyo
Metropolitan Government Subway. But you can use them
seamlessly. In addition, JR Yamanote Loop line and Chuo line connect
major terminals such as Tokyo, Ueno, Shinjunk, Shibuya.
