Reviews for Tokyo Narita Airport
5 stars | Josh Bradshaw
An easy to navigate airport. The restroom fixtures can be confusing, and the WiFi is concentrated in a two foot square area in one terminal. HUGE five stars for the $12 for 45 minutes neck and shoulder massage at the gate!
4 stars | Leigh Virkus
A very attractive, clean & efficient airport. Easily accessible by train, taxi, or bus from Tokyo, we opted to purchase seats on the 'Friendly Airport Bus' shuttle, which picked us up at our hotel. Although Narita is a very busy, major airport, the atmosphere is remarkably quiet & polite. There are countless eateries & shops, including many high end designer establishments. Boarding gates are calm & the boarding process is well organized & efficient.

Easy to navigate and lots of friendly ppl who are happy to help. Be sure to have your customs cards filled out before you land. It's a long hike to the counters and they're pretty curt about having it filled properly.
Lots of washroom pitstops before customs so no need to crowd the inflight washrooms before you land.
