Tokyo Narita spotting guide

Update 28.DEC.2008

 

How to use the Bus?
 All buses in this section have no Bus No. So you must find the bus by the destination sign in Japanese above front window. You can find the Japanese character for the buses' destination signs in the timetable below and if you can find some same characters on the bus destination sign, the bus is for your destination.  Also you can ask to the bus drivers by English-Japanese  translation sheet on this site. (click here), show the sheet for the bus driver or any passengers and point the line you want to say. You may get answer.
 When you get on the bus at starting bus stop; Narita Airport, Keisei Narita or JR Narita station, just get on the bus and wait for start. When you get on the bus at the other bus stop, get a ticket to adjust fare from ticketing machine beside door. When you get off the bus, you must check the fare on the display above the driver seat and pay your fare with the ticket. The amount displayed at the same number on your ticket is your fare. If  you got on at starting bus stop, first column, no number, on the display is your fare. If you do not have any changes to pay, you can change money by the money change machine beside the driver seat. The machine accept 1000yen bill, 500yen coin, 100yen coin and 50yen coin.
When you use the bus for Aviation Museum or Hotel-downtown circle bus, pay the fare when you get on the bus.
