Since it’s a long drive from Narita Airport to central Tokyo (nearly 70 km), taking a taxi is quite a luxury.
The only advantage of taking a taxi in Tokyo is that it provides you with privacy. As for other advantages of a taxi, you can get equally comfortable seats, air-conditioning, and large luggage space in the Narita Airport Express (NEX) and Limousine Bus.
There are two types of taxis you can pick up at Narita Airport: standard taxis, and fixed-fare taxis. A standard taxi’s trip from the airport to central Tokyo will cost you approx. 20,000 yen ($178.74) to 21,000 yen ($187.68) which is almost same with fixed-fare taxi’s fare.
It’s indeed a very expensive option, so we only recommend this way of transport to groups that have 4 travelers and prefer privacy. Most of Tokyo taxis can carry maximum of 4 passengers.
Travel time: 60 to 80 minutes depending on traffic
