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,

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

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.
Use this calculator:
Tokyo Taxi Fare | Tokyo Taxi Fare Card | Tokyo Taxi Fare Chart

Wa, Tokyo taxi like alot more ex the Singapore sia.
At first still intend to take taxi go hotel when reach.
Cause will reach Tokyo around 1605.
And with parents so don't want pull the luggage around.
Now maybe have to reconsider liao.

short distance and with 4 persons in a cab, its a sensible thing to do. especially you have old folks with you. But if you have 4 huge luggage, maybe the cab wont be able to haul them all in.

Taking taxi from Narita to hotel in Tokyo? that would cost you a lot. If you want to avioid lugging big luggage up and down of stairs and platforms, consider the Airport limousine. Also if possible, travel light, your back will thank you for it.

think it is ok for JAL.
but there are cheaper alternatives. u can find cheaper flights to Tokyo, then take budget domestic flight to Sapporo. Peach Airline going to have NRT-CTS flight starting from end march this year.


btw, ur search #2 doesn't have flight from Tokyo to Sapporo. are u planning to take train?

Okay, thanks alot for the advise!
Actually I would alight at Haneda airport.
Currently accomodation haven found yet.
Still deciding whether Hotel or Airbnb, and location wise too.
During October it wouldnt be very cold right? Like this luggage wise shouldnt be a problem since don need to bring thick clothings.
Actually my parents not really that old yet haha, around 50+ only
But I wish them to walk too much or carry luggage around and walk alot.
If airport limo how much would that cost roughly any idea?

Are pocket wifis easily available for rent at hotels or a yodobashi branch perhaps? Also, what would the estimated charges be for roaming using Google maps only for a week? Just a rough estimate would be fine.

PS: Just remembered bmobile. If i order by tonight, can I get the SIM card by Tuesday afternoon?

Disneyland is on the outskirts of Tokyo metropolitan. while it is very near, u will have to change train at Tokyo station for most places u are visiting. and probably change train twice to get to places like Asakusa. along Yamanote line is much better coz most attractions are along the Yamanote line so u dun need to change train

Thanks a lot! :)

BTW, you have an idea between the two end point (ueno station of skyliner and access narita tokyo station) which one is more accessible to a taxi stand - less walk, less stairs, less up and down.

Both of it is 3-4km away from our hotel so it will be more easier for us.
Both Ueno and Tokyo are 2 major transport hubs in their own rights. Toyko is recently renovated, so expect better ramp and signage. Ueno is more dated but doesn't mean its harder to maneuver

Try to look up their station map. But no guarantee one, sometimes map say have lift but when you reached there its under maintenance, so you know lah that kind of things happen. best is still travel light. Use the 24" luggage if you can.

If you using andriod can download this app call Navfree
Can download map and use at other country, have gps function too.

Hmm.. Okay thanks!
Then I will skip this accomodation and try find others.


Thank you! Like this might need maybe 1 piece of winter wear for safety.

By the way, is this apartment okay?
For the location and convinience.
