Along the Yamanote line is good.
Yamanote Line - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Most have connections to either to metro or to other railways companies or lines(except Shinokubo, a small station in Korea Town)

Choose one that best serve your itinerary and your day trips.
Okay thanks!

Will try to look for an apartment along that line.
Anyone has any recommendation?
Staying for 6 night, hope to find 1 below 1.5k with 2bedroom.

Or any Hotel recommendation near the line an per room hopefully around 120 after tax? Budget on this trip cause will be treating my parents go then flight already spend 2.9k

These are different kind of trains that make lesser stops than the "local" trains. You can click on one of those Interval Timetable, you will see various kind of trains that makes different kind of stops.

Thanks for helping me to find the apartment.

The 2nd one is rather over my budget, as for first one I will consider first.
Would still prefer to have 2 bedroom apartment.

Thanks cpuer.

Another question. Am looking at transportation method to and from Narita airport. Saw this special discount tickets on Keisei Skyliner + Metro Pass or Keisei Skyliner + Tokyo Subway Ticket..

Would that mean that those Keisei Skyliner tickets in those combo are inclusive of reservations already? So I do not have to pay an additional fee to get a seat?

All skyliner is reserved seats, as according to their website. So the price paid is inclusive of the reserved seats.
Keisei Skyliner & Tokyo Subway Ticket | Special Discount Tickets | KEISEI Electric Railway

If you buy round trip tix, you have to reserve the seats in advance. Skyliner tix valid for 6months,

any website that can estimate cost of taxi in tokyo? Will be taking taxi from the end point of the airport transport (thinking skyline thru ueno or access narita thru tokyo stn) to our hotel in nihombashi..the distance i can get thru google map...need the taxi cost only so i have a rough idea and I can have enough cash with me on the first day...

also, any idea which of the two end points have a nearer taxi stand? will consider the most convenient between the two.


ill be with a 2yo kid so walking with a lot of luggage is too much hassle.

What's the difference between these 2? The second one is cheaper and looks like the same thing.
