NARITA AIRPORT TO TOKYO
There are several options for transferring to central Tokyo.
Narita Airport is 70km from central Tokyo, so taking a taxi is not normally recommend as the cost can be prohibatively high.
Tokyo Airporter Service
This private service is ideal for small groups of people, families or those who don't want to carry their luggage on and off the trains. This service is cheaper than a taxi and operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Online bookings at www.tokyoairporter.com.
There are two trains services departing Narita Airport: JR Narita Express and Keisei Skyliner. While they use different routes and lines they both will get you into central Tokyo. The best option depends on where in Tokyo you are going, if your have Japan Rail Pass and which train timetable best fits your timing.
Shinjuku - Normally the Keisei Skyliner will be the best option with a travel time of 65 to 77 minutes and a total cost of ¥2,590. However, some JR Narita Express go directly to Shinjuku Station in 77 minutes for ¥3,110 (free if you have a Japan Rail Pass).
Tokyo Station - (for Shinkansen - bullet trains - to the rest of Japan) - Travel time is very similar for the two lines, around 55 minutes. The advantage of the JR Narita Express is you don't have to change lines, but it is a little more expensive ¥2,940 compared to ¥2,550 on the Keisei Skyliner.

Most banks in Japan can exchange only US dollars or Euro to Yen and back again. A few banks in central Tokyo could exchange Australian dollars to Yen, but the process is very slow and the fees are very high. Unfortunately almost none of the Japanese banks ATM will accept ATM cards issued by foreign banks. Most Japan Post offices have ATM that will accept foreign issued cards and allow funds withdrawal.
