It takes the Keisei Limited Express train approx. 48 minutes to get from Narita Airport to (Keisei-)Funabashi and it costs 720 yen each way. The train runs every 20 minutes.

Get off the Skyliner or the limited express at (Keisei-)Funabashi.

Go downstairs via the escalator.

Clear the turnstile and turn to the left to head toward JR Funabashi Station.

Go straight on through the shopping complex until you find a downward escalator to the ground level.

Take the escalator.

As soon as you leave the escalator, turn to the right and then turn to the left to purchase a JR portion ticket. If you have a suica, just head toward the entrance.
