Arriving at Narita on a Sunday midday

What is the best way to get to Shimbashi Station (with luggage) using the Japan Rail Pass. Will the Rail Pass cover the Kesei Line to Nippori - or must we transfer at Tokyo Station? Thank you.


Hi there,

With the JR Pass the best route is to take the Narita Express to Tokyo station and there transfer to the Yamanote line bound for Shimbashi.

Hope this helps,
