It's easy. Call your travel agent or search online for a cheap airfare to Tokyo, and you'll find plenty available. Upon arriving on Tokyo flights for your holiday or business trip, you'll find the range of facilities at Tokyo's Narita International Airport for to be unparalleled. They include free Wi-Fi access, in both terminals, cellular phone and DVD player rental, and copy and fax services.
For families there are nurseries for baby changing, dedicated areas for children, and a multitude of duty free, food and drink outlets. Tokyo's city is 66 km away from the airport and you can take a bus, train, taxi or limousine. All of these are available from the arrivals section of both terminals.
The major form of transport in Tokyo is the extensive rail network, though it can be a little confusing for travellers who don't read or speak Japanese. The rail networks operate under several different companies. It can be necessary to change trains more than once, depending on your destination. There are a wide variety of rail passes available, and buying a pre-paid pass from the airport can save a lot of headaches.
Taxis are expensive, but they are a good way for groups to get around. Most taxi drivers don't speak English, so be sure to have the address of your destination written in Japanese. Many hotels list a map on the back of their business cards for convenience. The bus system is extensive, and another option, but again, most drivers only speak Japanese, so it can be confusing if you don't know the language.
Airfare to Tokyo will buy you the opportunity to tour the Imperial Palace, home to the Japanese Emperor and his family: a must when visiting Tokyo for the first time.
