Local transportation


Narita International Airport is about 60km from central Tokyo, and is easily accessed by either the Narita Express Train in just 40 to 60 minutes or the new Sky Access (Keisei Skyliner) in 40 minutes. Haneda International Airport is even more convenient, located within 15km (15 minutes by train) of central Tokyo. Within the city, a well-developed network of public transportation allows easy and convenient movement in and around the city. Major modes of transportation include trains, subways, buses and taxis.


An extensive network of trains and subways run through central Tokyo, offering convenient and easy commuting. The unique numbering system of the Tokyo Metro which identifies the metro line as well as each station, makes it easy even for first-timers to know which line to get on. In addition, the safety and cleanliness of the trains and subway cars means that travelers have no hesitation about making full use of the transportation system, even at night. Taxis run widely in Tokyo, and these could be stopped on the street side as well as at cab pools or taxi ranks in front of hotels, train stations and large buildings. Taxis are clean and comfortable, offering white-glove service and lace seat covers. The minimum fare for one subway ride is JPY 150 (USD 1.4) and minimum rate for one taxi ride (2 km) is JPY 410 (USD 3.7).
