The 4 best ways to get from Narita to Roppongi
If you want to get to Roppongi as quickly as possible, simply take the Keisei Skyliner train from Narita Airport (either of the airport terminal stations) to Keisei-Ueno Station, then change to the Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line, which will take you to Roppongi. The total travel time is around 80 minutes, and tickets are ¥2,670 one way. You can buy Keisei Skyliner tickets online in advance.
Brave, adventurous sorts might want to take the Keisei Main Line train (heading for Keisei-Ueno) from the airport to Aoto Station, transfer (not always necessary) to the Keisei Oshiage Line for Haneda Airport and get off at Daimon Station, and then transfer to the Tokyo Oedo Subway Line (heading for Hikarigaoka) to get to Roppongi Station. This costs just ¥1,190, but takes about 30-40 minutes longer and can be quite confusing—and crowded!
Pro tip: Read our guide to taking the Keisei Line from Narita.
Since there is no direct train, an easier way of getting from Narita to Roppongi is to take an Airport Limousine Bus to one of the hotels in Roppongi. Tickets cost about ¥3,100 one way, but the bus saves you a lot of stress and schlepping if you have big bags. The journey takes between 90-140 minutes, depending on traffic conditions.
