From Narita Airport to Ikebukuro and Tokyo (Yokohama) port

Hi there

We will be travelling to Tokyo for the first time in May 2015 and would appreciate if you could advise what is the quickest means of transport (train or airport limo) to get to our Ikebukuro hotel including costs? Also from Ikebukuro can you please advise how do we get to Tokyo (Yokohama) port to board our cruise from Japan to Beijing, China.

Many thanks for your help.

Hello Cate,

I'd advise using the Narita Express from Narita to Ikebukuro station, this is a direct route and will cost around 3,200yen.

Alternatively you could use the Narita Express to Tokyo station and from there take the Yamanote line to Ikebukuro.

Tokyo and Yokohama port are very big, could you give me a bit more information where you need to be? The address or building for instance. It's impossible with the current information to give you a good route.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi Cate,

Thank you, that is much better!

The metro station for the pier is Nihon-Odori, here is an example itinerary on how to get there from Ikebukuro.

Hope this helps,

Hi Daniel-san

Thank you so much for the useful information.

Sorry to bother you again. Could you advise how frequent the Narita Express runs from the airport to Ikebukuro station as we are arriving at 1440 on 12 May 2015? We are only in Tokyo for 3 days and are we able to purchase the rail tickets in advance from Australia?

Cheers

Hello there,

Here is the complete Time Table. There's unforunately not direct train to Ikebukuro at your arrival time.

My advise would be to take the Narita Express to Shinjuku and take the Yamanote line from there to Ikebukuro.

Cheers!
Daniel
