How to Take a Bus From Narita Airport

Here's a convenient way for you to travel from the airport to your hotel!

Traveling around in an unfamiliar place can be quite the challenge. For tourists, it's really helpful when a means of transportation, which can take them directly where they want to go, is readily made available. 

In Japan, if you don't mind spending more money than you normally would for a train ride, using the airport bus services is a great way of getting from Narita Airport to your hotel. What's more, there are even direct bus services for many of the bigger hotels located in the area.

In this article, we list down the step-by-step process of using the airport bus services:

First, let's take a look at Terminal 2. We'll assume that you are standing at the Arrival Lobby A.

When you come out from the Zone A Immigration Gate, you'll see a bus ticket counter directly in front of you.

Several different bus companies serve Narita Airport. In terms of the variety of routes offered and frequency of service, Airport Limousine (with the orange signs) is probably the most convenient. Besides services to the Tokyo Station area, Nihonbashi and Ginza, Ikebukuro, Shinjuku, and Shibuya, there are also direct services to Tokyo Disneyland.

On the other hand, let’s say that you came out from the Zone B Immigration Gate.

You'll also see a bus ticket counter directly in front of you when you come out of the Immigration Gate.

Take note that buses to the Tokyo Station, Nihonbashi areas, and Shinjuku depart roughly every 15 to 30 minutes. In contrast, the bus services going to Shibuya are surprisingly infrequent, with only about 20 departures per day. There are also two direct services to Asakusa.

For famous spots such as Hibiya, Ginza, and Odaiba, you don't need to rush to catch the bus since the buses frequently come and go in the area.

Once you have bought your ticket, you can leave the terminal building through the S2 Exit, which is located right beside the Zone B Immigration Gate.

Take the S2 Exit and look to the left.

Bus Stops 11 to 21 are on the left. At Terminal 2, the bus stops are arranged in a row adjacent to the terminal building. The way going from Bus Stop 1 to Bus Stop 21 (the farthest away) is quite a long walk.

Bus Stops 1 to 10, on the other hand, are on the right-hand side. At Terminal 2, the bus stops are arranged in a straightforward numerical order. The buses that stop at Bus Stop 4 also stop at Bus Stop 14, and the same applies to Bus Stop 5 and Bus Stop 15, 6 and 16, and 7 and 17.
