Since Narita Airport is located 66 km from the city, the terminal was intended to increase the convenience of the airport with offering airline check-in facilities until September 2001. T-CAT also at one point had exit immigration pre-clearance desks, so that passengers could complete exit formalities at T-CAT and then use a special lane to bypass exit immigration at Narita Airport.

  • Follow the 100 yen shops can do there but hard to use even though I kinda Dim and very good location beside the bus users, and opening drag eleven in everyday life much easier. So that is off the beaten path.
