I will explain how to travel from Narita Airport to Ikebukuro Station(￣m￣*）
The best way to get from Narita Airport to Ikebukuro Station is by Skyliner + Yamanote Line (JY).
- There are staff who are used to foreigners
- Skyliner is a reserved seat, so you can sit securely
- Easy to understand transfer at Nippori Station
- On the Yamanote Line, there is a current location display in English, Chinese, and Korean near the entrance

The Yamanote Line (JY) comes every 5 minutes, so you don’t have to worry about time.
2.Access Express(To Ueno)+JR(JY)
3.Rapid Limited Express・Limited Express+JR(JY)
- Low price
- Because it is not a seat reservation, you may not be able to sit
- Since Narita Airport is the first departure, it is also a fact that it is relatively easy to sit
- Getting off is not foreign friendly
- If you want cheapness, we recommend the “TYK-NRT bus”.
You can also get to Ikebukuro Station by Keisei Line local trains.
On the Keisei Line, however, the transfer is complicated, so even those who understand Japanese are lost.
When traveling from Narita Airport to Ikebukuro Station, you do not need to ride.
If you take the JR East Narita Express, you can go to Ikebukuro without having to change trains.
However, there are only about 10 direct trains a day to Ikebukuro Station.
There are only 27 trains a day to reach Tokyo Station (about 20 minutes without transfer to Ikebukuro).
Moreover, it is expensive.
So I don’t recommend it.
- Have the JR Wide Tokyo Pass (you can ride NEX at no extra charge)
- I do not mind even if it takes some time
- I want to move to a reserved seat
- There is a train that is just right for arriving at Narita Airport
Would be better for you.

6.Airport Limousine Bus
It’s a limousine bus, but it’s a regular four-row bus
- This will take some time
- It is expensive
I do not recommend it for the reason.
Not on the train, straight to the hotel! Direct bus terminal! There is goodness.
- Those who do not want to walk too much
- Overnight at Hotel Metropolitan
- Stay at Sunshashin Prince Hotel
- Take a bus from Ikebukuro Sunshine Bus Terminal
For those who prioritize low praice, we recommend the called 1,000 yen bus “TYO-NRT” bus.
It will be renewed from February 2020, so I will report details once the service starts.
