Transfer from Keisei Line to JR Lines at Nippori Station

Information on how to catch the Keisei Line train from Narita Airport

JR Nippori Station has seen a sweeping change in the last couple of few years, and Keisei Station has still been under renovation, maybe until the super fast New Skyliner starts to run in a couple of years.

If you intend to change to the JR Line from Keisei at Nippori, you might want to purchase a connection ticket sold at a ticket machine, or at the counter at Narita Airport Stations.

First, on arriving at Nippori, go upstairs by escalator. They are located at both ends of the track.

Then clear the wicket if you have a connection ticket to JR.

Then walk diagonally forward right, and keep on walking.

You can see the signposts leading you to the right track before long.

Then you're on the correct platform.

Hi, about how long does it take to transfer? Is it easier to transfer at Ueno or Nippori? Thanks
