Take a good look at the airplanes flying in and out from Narita International Airport, a spacious fenced platform with benches and telescopes. You can see the entire length of a runway, extending for some 4,000 m (13,123 ft) with small openings in the wire fence allowing you to get your camera through for a good shot. Watch the bustle as passengers enter shuttle buses, and baggage handlers and air traffic staff do their thing, as you kill time before your departure.

  • We flew in and out of terminal one. No complaints. Easy to find our way and information available readily. On the way out, we found looking for a quick healthy small meal a bit of a challenge but othe...  read more »
  • Up to the 5th floor there is also an outdoor gazebo in the food court, while a meal at each bench is placed and can see the plane taking off. At this close of the airport takeoff and landing can often see too relaxed for those of you who think it would be great if you look at the stop.

  • Very large and very clean airport. Signage was plentiful and easy to follow, thankfully. Great range of eateries and stores, plenty of options for last minute gifts. Staff were efficient and very helpful. Was interviewed by maybe a news crew of some form, saw that mentioned in a review below too so it might be a regular occurrence - be prepared, unlike I was after a 10hr flight :( Definitely one of the best airports I've ever visited.
  • Narita is a great airport near Tokyo. It was the biggest airport of Tokyo but more and more flights are being redirected to Haneda. The airport is big and well organized. I would recommend to get the train to get to the city center. The train is fast and you'll get a first view of Tokyo which is an absolute massive city!
  • Nice airport. It's bright and going through immigration was quite efficient - they'd take foreigners at the Japanese citizens counters if they weren't busy. Shops inside had a good assortment of Japanese food and some products. Managed to get a box of the Sake kit kats at one near the ANA lounge.
  • Narita airport is a huge airport located a couple of km outside the centre of Tokyo. It's a less stressful airport than Haneda and it goes over several floors. There are also lots of transportation options to choose from, depending on where your hotel is located. The train is recommended as it takes about 20-30 min to the Centre of Tokyo versus the bus that takes about 1,5hrs. The airport is easy to navigate trough and there are also lots of staff available if you might need some extra guidance.
  • Narita gaved me a great time arriving and departing in Japan, the immigration are very kind, they assisted us and guide us on our way. Many varities of shops inside the airport sells some of Japanese authentic products and culture including Pokemon store and the famous Totoro. This airport also have a railway system "Narita Express" that transports us in our way to Shinjuku. Overall, this airport is the greatest and the biggest i've ever seen.
