    Willer Express Narita Airport Shuttle Bus

    While the Access Narita and Tokyo Shuttle buses provide transport to and from central Tokyo and Ginza Station, the Willer Express Narita Airport Shuttle Bus connects with Osaki Station in the south of the city. It’s a convenient option for those wanting to change to the Tokyu Line and connect along the west side of the Yamanote Line (Shinagawa, Shibuya, and Ebisu) or along the Tokyu Oimachi Line. As Tokyo and Ginza are both very crowded stations, it’s also a good option for those who don’t want to have to negotiate these busy transport hubs.
