They are Bus company who provide Airport shuttle bus service at reasonable price. In addition, both do not require advance reservation, so you can just pay before you get on. 

So let’s see the details below.

On the way back, you have to come to JR Tokyo station and look for Yaesu South Exit. Please head to Bus Platform No.7 where you will find your transportation and staffs. Let them know which terminal you would like to go and then you pay money to the driver.

Early Bus 5.40 am from Tokyo Station

For those who have to catch early flight, the earliest bus will leave JR Tokyo Station at 5.40 am and arrive at each terminal as following time.

  • Terminal 2 (6.45 Bus Stop No. 2 / 6.50 Bus Stop No. 17)
  • Terminal 1 (6.55)
  • Terminal 3 (7.00)

***Bus Stop No. 2 and No. 19 are both at the front of Terminal 2 (5 mins walk away from each other). Difference would be which one is much closer to your airline desk.

Normally, it would cause you (at least) 2 hrs for Luggage Loading and Process at Immigration. So, you may make it for the 9 am flight if you take this bus.

If your flight is much earlier than that???

You still can catch the bus according to table above. Please be informed that

  • Bus 1.10 and 1.20 am are 2000 yen per ride
  • All buses do not stop at Terminal 1

Somehow, these schedules look a bit tough as you may have to wait at the airport since late night before your flight. For suggestion, you can check train schedule of “Keisei Skyliner” which is an express train to the Narita airport. We have blog for you, please take a look on the link down below.
