Buying Narita ticket to Tokyo

Greetings, I read in one of the post:

You can indeed exchange the JR Pass upon arrival and select a starting date for a later day. At the same time you can buy the 1,500yen ticket. Which will get you into Tokyo in comfort.

So my question is: is this 1,500 yen ticket for the NEK train and do I buy or ask for it when I get my JR Pass exchange?



Hi there,

The 1,500yen ticket is indeed for the Narita Express (NEX), you can buy it at the same time when you activate your JR Pass or just buy it at Narita Airport and activate your JR Pass at a later time.

Hope this help!
