From Narita Airport (Tokyo) to Kyoto

Im landing in Narita Airport on Oct 24, I want to go to Kyoto, Which is the easiest and fastest way to go there from the airport?. How long does it take?


Hi there,

The fastest way by rail is to take the Narita Express to Tokyo station and from there the Shinkansen to Kyoto. You should reserve about 5 hours for the full trip.

Hope this helps,
