Tokyo Metro Area is served by two large airports:
Haneda. All international carriers, with the exception of China Airlines,
use Narita International Airport (formally known as the New Tokyo International
Airport) which is 41 miles/66 km from center city. Most domestic air service goes
through Haneda. The two airports are connected by a regular bus servicehttp://www.narita-airport.or.jp/airport_e/
They generally available at all air and train terminals. As with any of the world's
largest cities, they are ubiquitous.
NOTE: Unless you drive left side
of the road and understand Japanese language and driving habits, try not to drive.
Three (not separating the individual private systems) train/metro
systems service Tokyo: Shinkansen ('bullet train'), Japan Railways (JR) trains
and private trains. Most of the major train lines terminate at Tokyo station on
the JR Yamanote line. There are three shinkansen lines connecting Tokyo with the
rest of Japan - check out the shinkansen for more details. For day trips to areas
such as Kamakura, Nikko, Hakone and Yokohama, private trains are usually the most
convenient means of transportation. Various buses go directly to Nagoya, Nara
and Kobe. They generally terminate at Tokyo station. From Shinjuku station there
are buses to the Fuji and Hakone regions.
