Private Vehicles - NRT to Downtown Tokyo

Recommended Posts

I am looking for recommendations for a private vehicle to get from Narita Internatinoal  airport to downtown Tokyo.

 

I am not looking for public transportation options.

 

Thank you.

The Tokyo page on Wikitravel lists a couple of options:

 

By taxi

A taxi to central Tokyo is extremely expensive, on the order of ¥30000 if you hail one directly by yourself (equivalent to a few nights stay in the average Tokyo hotel), and you are more likely to get stuck in a traffic jam than save any time. Flat fare taxi cabs to Tokyo go for around ¥17000-19000 from special taxi ranks, but even so, if you're in a hurry, it's generally much faster and cheaper to take the Narita Express or the Skyliner, and change to a taxi upon arriving in Tokyo or Ueno. If you're not in a hurry, consider the airport limousine bus.

 

Tokyo MK Taxi and Cab Station Ltd offer advanced bookings for taxis in English. Their prices are more or less equivalent to the flat-fare prices noted above, once additional fees are figured in.

We booked through the concierge of our hotel, the Hilton Shinjuku and they sent a car and driver confirmed.

Just happened to see this question as I was looking through this topic.  We also booked a private car through the concierge of our hotel, The Tokyo Station Hotel, and it worked out very well.  By the way, if you are still looking for a hotel, we highly recommend the Tokyo Station Hotel.  Great location, beautiful hotel and exceptional staff.

We also booked a private transfer through the Hilton Shinjuku from the Yokohama cruise terminal to the hotel.  The driver was on time (actually a little early) and the cost was credited to our hotel bill.  Very smooth.
