Narita airport to Akasaka

Hi - we will be arriving from the UK and need to get to our hotel next to the Akasaka metro station.

At the moment it looks best to use the NEX and buy the joint ticket with Suica card, can anyone advise which metro trains we need to use and where to change please?

Are you sure you're arriving at NRT? As far as I know, no flight is allowed to land at NRT after 9:30. If your flight is arriving at 10pm, it'll be at HND.

I will be staying at the same hotel "Gran Fresa Akasaka" and I was thinking that the best way is to take the limosine bus to the Excel Tokyu Akasaka Hotel , and then take a taxi to our hotel. We're also 4 people and we would be very tired to walk after such a long flight :( . I would really appreciate it if someone could tell me if this is a good idea and how much will this cost per person .

Someone wrote

"Tokyo Station to Akasaka would be 2,200-2,500+yen depending on traffic. 4 people and all their luggage are not likely to fit into one taxi, though unless you can find a large taxi. "

I think you mean Y 22,000. I was excited for a moment... :-)

Sydney - Welcome to TA.

Please refer to the earlier responses within this post for directions to Akasaka. Also check your hotel's website. There is most likely a page with access options.

Since you have a JR pass, you could take the Narita Express to Tokyo station, then take a taxi to your hotel. There are no JR trains that go to Akasaka. It's on a subway line, which is under a different system.


You will need to exchange your voucher for the actual pass beforehand. Check in the information on Narita Terminal 1.


As your hotel is in Akasaka, you'll need to either pay cash for each subway ride or invest in a PASMO (or SUICA). Technically, they're both the same thing, but PASMO is issued by subways and private railway, and SUICA is issued by JR. They can both be used to the JR, too. But if you have a pass, you'll want to use that as much as possible.



Here's a map of the subway system. Be sure to download the map. JR is the thin gray line, as well as the gray and white "square zebra stripe" train that goes around the myriad of subways in the middle of the page. JR, which is above ground, is great for going around the perimeter of the city. Although you can't see the scenery, the subway system is the way to go when traveling within Tokyo.

You should take Marunouchi Line (okyo Metro) to get off at Akasaka-Mitsuke station.

There are two stations which have "Akasaka" in the names. They are several blocks away from one another, so you will want to use the station that's closer to your hotel. Gran Fresa Akasaka site recommends Akasaka station which is on the Chiyoda Line. Akasaka-Mitsuke station is walkable, but you won't want to be carrying any suitcases.
