Transfer to Keiyo Line at Tokyo

How to get to the Keiyo Line platform from the Narita Express one at Tokyo Station

JR Keiyo Line conects Tokyo and Maihama, where very popular Tokyo Disneyland and Disneysea are located. The thing is that the track location of this line at Tokyo Station is very remote from the other lines. It's at least a 10 minutes' walk to get to the platform. I'd show the way to reach there from the Narita Express (Sobu Rapid) track by using maps and photos.

Transfer from each line.

Tokyo Station

This is the Shinkansen entrance area. Turn on the right to get to the Keiyo Line platform. It's 520m from here onwards, and you may have walked a few hundred meters so far and spent approx. 10 minutes.

Go downstairs by escalator.

Then take the three travelators (moving walkways).

Go downstairs by escalator again.

At last you're on the Keiyo Line's premises, though there are another two escalators to go...
