Narita International Airport
Japan's main international airport and a hub between Asia and the United States, Narita International Airport transports more than 36 million passengers a year from two terminals. From the airport, 58 km (36 miles) east of central Tokyo, it is a 53-minute journey by Narita Express to Tokyo Station.
Narita Airport is best for luxury brand, gift and duty free shopping. Buy books at Tsutaya or Sanseido Bookstore, gifts at Yokoyama Modern & Antique and electronic goods at Fa-So-La Tax Free Akihabara. Enjoy duty-free liquor and tobacco, fragrance, skincare and cosmetics, confectionery, sunglasses and watches.
Narita Nakamise shopping mall, home to luxury brands and tax-free electronics, is directly after security control in Terminal 1's South Wing. All Terminal 1 passengers have access to Narita Nakamise, but Terminal 2 passengers do not. Narita Fifth Avenue is available to Terminal 2 passengers after security control, with high-end goods, electronics and other duty-free products.
Wireless high-speed internet access is installed throughout the airport. There are also power points where you can charge your laptop and fixed terminals if you don't have a computer with you. These terminals are coin operated and cost ¥100 for 10 minutes. In Terminal 1, there is cable LAN internet access in the waiting lounge, wireless internet access in the Business & Travel Support Centre and in the dayrooms and showers in both terminals. In Terminal 2's Narita Fifth Avenue, the Broadband Café provides internet access free of charge.
East & Drink
Cafés and restaurants abound in both terminals. Most are before security control. Try Jitsuen Teuchi Udon Kineya for homemade udon noodles (Terminal 1), West Park Café Express for tasty sandwiches and hotdogs (Terminal 1) and Sushiden for super-fresh sushi (Terminal 2). Major café chains such as Starbucks and Café de Crié have outlets here. The cost of food and drink sold at Narita Airport is higher than Tokyo prices.
