One walkway connects Terminals 1 to 2, while another connects Terminal 2 to 3. Terminal 3 is a small building mainly used for low-cost carriers, offering a massive 24-hour food court. Ground transportation includes two rail connections run by East Japan Railway Company (Narita Express) as well as Keisei Electric Railway (Skyliner), both of which connect to downtown’s Tokyo Station. There are also buses, taxis and car rental services available at the Tokyo City Air Terminal (T-CAT).
Narita Airport is home to four main parking areas (P1-P5). The best lots for reaching Terminal 1 are lots P1 and P5 - P1 is a short-term lot that offers close access to the Terminal 1 Train Station as well as early-bird specials and late-night discounts, while P5 offers slightly lower rates due to its further distance from the terminal. The best lots for reaching Terminal 2 are P2 and P3. The massive P2 lot is broken into several sections - P2 North and P2 South are connected directly to the terminal, while P2 North 2 is an extension of P2 North. P3 is an extension of P2 South and is typically busy due to its lower rates and close access to the Terminal 2 Train Station. Special services include online reservations available at Narita Airport’s website (P2 and P5 only) as well as electric charge stations available at P1 and P2.
