From Narita Airport to the University of Tokyo:

Narita Airport is located 66 km east from the city center; express trains take you to the city center in 40 – 60 minutes.

(1) Take the “Skyliner”, operated by the railroad company “Keisei” and get off at the last station “Ueno” (about 40 minutes). The ticket costs 2,470 yen (~$22). From Ueno Station, it’s a twenty-minute walk to the university campus; it’s easier to take a taxi from Ueno Station; it will cost about 1,000 yen (~$9) to go to the university.

(2) Another train that takes you from Ueno to the city center is Narita Express, operated by JR. It arrives at Tokyo Station (it takes 60 minutes and costs 3,020 yen ~ $27). Then take the subway (Marunouchi Line) and get off at the fourth station “Hongo san-cho me”. Then it is about 10-minute walk to the university campus.
