“Nice, clean, and efficient! Surprisingly quiet and empty though, at least in the international terminal. Took less than 10 minutes for a family of 5 to get out of Customs. It is about an hour and a half to get I to the city though depending on where you’re staying. Their bus and rail systems are plentiful and efficient – best way to get where you need to go.”
—Terrance P (Agoura Hills, CA)
“One of favorite airports in the world…maybe because I spend half my life in Japan? The shopping here is the best – you can wait until you are headed home then buy every Japanese gifts, trinkets or sweets here and stuff your suitcases. And if you run out of room, no problem – you can purchase new suitcases, which I have done on two separate trips! Immigration & customs go fairly quickly. And with two fast train services into Tokyo (Narita Express & Skyliner), the public transport aspect of Narita is covered.”
—Kenneth B (Richardson, TX)
“After using San Francisco International Airport (SFO), I realized how great the Narita airport is.
Can you believe that the inspector tells people ‘welcome, please rest well after a long trip’ ?
Never happens in SFO. Well organized, clear signs both with Japanese and English.”
—Kaori M (Mountain View, CA)
