transportation from Narita to Minato, May

We are four adults with large luggage. We will stay in Narita after our flight. Next morning we would like to get to hotel center of asia in Minato, Tokyo. ( May 5)

We certainly could get trains, buses, etc, but with luggage and four of us, is there an easier and not too expensive way to do it?

Thank you

Access options - http://www.asiacenter.or.jp/eng/access/

Tokyo is about 60km from NRT.

If you opt for NEX - http://www.jreast.co.jp/e/suica-nex/ - is a good value.

If you opt for Skyliner - keisei.co.jp/keisei/…

If you opt for Limo Bus - https:/…index.html - is a good value.

Are you committed to staying a night in Narita? At an airport hotel or in Narita City? A few morning Narita Express trains stop in Narita city in the morning, but you'd have to take subways from Tokyo Station as detailed in Dave's Asia Center link. The Airport Limosine bus is a good option for first-time visitors with luggage, but you'd have to return to the airport.

If you're not committed to staying in Narita, it might just be simpler to go straight from the airport to Asia Center, taking the Airport Limosine and taxi. You can nap on the bus, or gaze at the urban landscape. Here's the schedule: https:/…55

Thank you. If I opt for the Nex--from Narita airport which station do I go to for 8-10-32 Akasaka, Minato, Tokyo?

Again, thank you for your help.

Yes, Tokyo station, then the Marunouchi and Ginza lines as detailed here: http://www.asiacenter.or.jp/eng/access/ Check out the Suica/Nex deal--see Dave's reply for the link. Besides saving money, the Suica prepaid card makes it easy to travel without having to worry about fare maps and ticket machines.

Do print out the bilingual access map: asiacenter.or.jp/eng/img/access/shuhen03.pdf Mailing addresses are not useful for navigating in Tokyo.

As you are a group of 4 travelers, I would take a taxi from Shibuya station(closest NEX station to the hotel).

If you wanna save some money, I would take a taxi from Shinanomachi station, the closest JR station to the hotel.

The NEX ticket of NEX SUICA package is valid for the entire routes.

The easiest way with luggage by far is to take the limobus to a nearby hotel then taxi. In your case take the bus to the G Hyatt or ANA. You might need two taxis but the fare is only 710yen each:
