Tokyo's main international airport opened in 1978, and handles the majority of overseas flights, though it's been facing competition in recent years from the more centrally located Haneda. Narita International Airport doesn't compare favourably to its inner-city rival: it's a real hike to get out there – albeit one that the new, high-speed Keisei Skyliner service has made more bearable – and the facilities are more than a little dowdy. Arriving travelers have a number of options for getting into Tokyo, including the JR-operated Narita Express (which connects to Tokyo Station, with some services continuing to Yokohama and Shinjuku) and Keisei Skyliner (to Nippori and Ueno); there are also cheaper, slower trains running on both lines, as well as highway bus services that travel to most major hotels and stations. Currency exchange and mobile phone rentals are both available at the airport.
