Getting to and from Narita Airport
The 3,500 yen cost includes a discounted fare of 1,500 yen for the Narita Express, 1,500 yen to use on JR lines in and around Tokyo (rechargeable), and a 500 yen refundable deposit for the card itself.
The "Suica & N'EX" can be purchased with cash or by credit card, but must be recharged (to any amount you like during your stay) with cash. Please be aware that, as well as being basically a train pass, more and more stores accept payment using Suica card, so it can often be used as a convenient alternative to fiddling with unfamiliar notes and coins.
For Japan Rail Pass holders
If you have already purchased a Japan Rail Pass in your home country, exchange it for a rail pass at the JR View Plaza Travel Service Center, or the normal JR ticket counter if View Plaza is closed. The Narita Express is free with a Japan Rail pass. Also, you can make any ongoing JR reservations right here.
Keisei Electric Railway from Narita
The Keisei Skyliner Airport Express runs between Ueno Station and Narita Airport.
The Keisei Skyliner Airport Express to Narita Airport takes about 60 minutes (1,920 yen). Unlike JR trains, smoking is allowed at the front and back cars (1 and 8).
Keisei's ordinary limited express will get you there in 75-80 minutes (1,000 yen). No smoking. You can use a Passnet card on this train.
The Keisei line connects with the JR line at Nippori and Ueno stations. The changeover to the JR Yamanote line is easier at Nippori as you do not have to leave the station. Changing over at Ueno means exiting the station and crossing the road. However, if you are taking a shinkansen (bullet train), change at Ueno.
However, be careful if taking the Keisei limited express: while most Keisei limited express trains go to Nippori and Ueno, a few don't, but join the Toei Asakusa subway line. This can be useful, however, if you want to go directly to Asakusa (75 min, 1,120 yen) or Ginza (Higashi Ginza station, 90 min, 1,160 yen).
