There are seven main access ways from Narita Airport to Ikebukuro Station.
I will share how to get to Ikebukuro Station by “Access Express” of train Keisei Line.
The Access Express does not support people who do not understand Japanese.
If you are not confident in your survival, I recommend Skyliner or bus.

Let’s go underground
Follow the sign of the train.
There are Two ticket centers.
NG：JR EAST Travel Service Center (NEX)

To get on the Keisei Line【ACCESS EXPRESS】, go to the black ticket center on the right.
There is no express charge (1,250JPY) when boarding an Access Express.
There are also vending machines, so you may want to use them.
- To Ueno
- To Haneda Airport International Terminal
When you get To Haneda Airport International Terminal, it is a detour.
Let’s get on【To Ueno】.
Pass through the station ticket gate
Take the fork to the left, direction Orange
To get on the Access Express, go through the orange gate.
Believe in the orange “Access Exp”.
Let’s get on the train.
It is not a reserved seat, so let’s sit in your favorite seat.
The first stop is Narita Airport Station, and this station is the second stop.
The chances of sitting are high.
If you really don’t want to stand, I recommend using Skyliner or bus.
2-3.From Narita Airport Terminal【3】to Keisei Access Express Station
There is no Train station at Terminal 3.
So move to Terminal 2(*￣∇￣)ノ
There are two ways to get to Terminal 2.
- On foot (630m / about 15 minutes)
- Free Terminal Shuttle Bus (about 3 minutes)
Follow the signs
If you take the Terminal Shuttle Bus, go straight.
Turn left if you want to walk.
Terminal Shuttle Bus To Terminal3
The travel time is about 3 minutes, but it is an image to depart when it is full.
Have time to spare.
On foot To Terminal3
If you’re worried about waiting for a bus you don’t know when to leave, Let’s walk.
Depending on your efforts, you can save time.

3.At Nippori Station（KS02/JY07）, Transfer from the Keisei Line To the Yamanote Line (JY/for Ikebukuro, Shinjuku )
Access Express does not have a destination display in the car.
Check the current location on Google Maps, etc., or look closely at the station name display numbering, and make sure that there is no delay in getting off.
When you get off at Nippori Station, you will see a large destination sign.
Anyway, aim at B gate, green
To Platform 11, For Ikebukuro, Shinjuku
The Yamanote line comes about every 5 minutes, so you don’t have to worry too much about time
Once you get on the Yamanote Line, gaze at the display above the door and get off at Ikebukuro Station.
* English is displayed in order.
Now you are in Ikebukuro!
