Narita Airport

Narita Airport (成田空港) is Japan's largest international airport.

Getting through customs takes a little while, but is done in the super efficient Japanese way - which includes taking your pictures and fingerprinting you. So it might be a good idea to do a last minute scrub-up on the plane so you don't land looking like you've just been on a 13+ flight! Plus, it's a good idea to use the bathroom on the way to customs as the first time we visited we were waiting for over an hour.

After picking up you luggage - go explore, you are now in Tokyo! There are plenty of shops and restaurants, covering a range of different foods including a very good sushi spot and a McDonalds. You can grab a kimono or suit of samurai armour or stock up on Japanese snacks from the range of shops.

Narita airport also has a good selection of ATMs which take foreign credit/debit cards as well as currency exchange desks.

There are a range of travel options from the airport to Tokyo proper, including the limousine bus, the Keisei Skyliner and the Narita Express train, both of which visit main hotels or link up with other rail networks.
