Sign in Narita Airport train station showing the stops on the Narita Express route. Train ride took approximately 40 minutes from Narita Airport to Yokohoma Train Station where we transferred to the JR line to Yokosuka. The Narita to Yokohoma train was an express train with many fewer stops. The train from Yokohama to Yokosuka was a regular train with many stops. it too took about 40 minutes.
This was the regular car on the express train from Narita to Yokohama.
