Where Will I Depart From In NYC?

A popular spot for a layover is in Seoul, though some carriers have layovers in Shanghai or Hong Kong. Depending on the layover, you can expect to wait somewhere between one and nine hours.

Most of the layovers on this flight route are in large international airports which should have plenty of amenities to keep you busy in the meantime. Planning ahead for your layover will make it a lot more tolerable if a regional airport is used instead.

Most international arrivals will be landing at Narita International Airport in Tokyo’s suburbs. You’ll be landing in Terminal 1 at Narita.

After making your way through customs and security, you’ll be treated to Narita’s transit hub, which follows the tradition of excellence within Japanese infrastructure. You can pick between regional railway, subway, bus, tram, or car to make it to your final destination.

Tokyo is a major tourist destination and is one of the most tourist friendly cities in the world. Though not all signs are in English, you should be able to easily decipher transit maps and critical signage thanks to pervasive helpful pictures and cartoons. Tourists love Tokyo for its galaxy of shops, excellent Japanese cuisine, and sprawling megalopolis.
