    We will be in Japan in Aug and were looking into transportation from Narita to our hotel in Tokyo. Husband is in a manual wheelchair that can be taken apart to fit in a trunk.  What is our best option that won’t cost too much to get to the hotel?

    Thank you!

    Since you want to keep it inexpensive, you may want to avoid a taxi. (Though if you are interested in booking an accessible taxi, let us know.)

    Both JR and Keisei have express trains running from Narita to the Tokyo area.  Of course you will then need to change to local trains after that.  That may not be desirable if you have a lot of luggage.

    Limousine Bus also has a few accessible buses (though they need an advanced reservation).  If your husband can walk up steps, he could ride the non-accessible Limousine Bus and put his wheelchair in the storage area.

    If you arrive in the morning, you can also send your suitcases by courier to your hotel and have them arrive in the evening.

    I guess it depends on where your hotel is.  Where is your hotel located?

    Our hotel is the New Sanno hotel.  How can we make the advanced reservation for the accessible limousine bus?

    Here is their information:

    It may be best to ask your hotel to make the reservation.  

    However, it looks like only the 11:10, 18:10,  and 19:15 buses from Narita are accessible. And they don’t get very close to your hotel…

    Keisei seems to get you closer:

    Either way, your hotel seems rather far from any stations, so you may end up needing a taxi for the last stretch.  If your husband’s chair folds up, you can likely use a regular taxi.  if not, the larger JapanTaxi type (dark blue, look like a London Cab) should allow you to ride without folding it up.

    Hmmm… Seems to be blank. Can you send the message again?

    Sorry..when we looked on the website, the New Sanno hotel is on their route. Does the accessible bus have a different route?

    Sorry, I cannot see that on the routing information.  Can you send the link and time?

    Ah, I see it in the booking search…

    From what I see, it only seems to list the 14:15 – which doesn’t look to be accessible.

    It might be a good idea to use the email on this page from your hotel: https://www.thenewsanno.com/location/from-narita-airport/airport-limousine-bus/

    As they will be able to confirm the times.  You will need someone to call to make a reservation for the accessible bus.  They need to know the size (length, width, height) and weight of the wheelchair (including your husband) to make the reservation.

    The bus looks like this:

    Just to let you know, since we are military veterans, we found another means of transportation through Yokota AB. They have chauffeured vans which we will probably take advantage of!

    Hello,

    That is great to hear!

    We have a number of vets who use the website, the chauffeured vans may be helpful for other users.  Can you tell us about the service?

    Thanks!
