When you’re in Japan, it’s really recommended that you experience riding the Tokyo Skyliner because it only takes 41 minutes to get to downtown Tokyo from the airport, and vice versa. The Keisei Skyliner lets you easily connect to the JR lines and if you want to get to downtown Tokyo as fast as possible, then this is the mode of transportation for you. If you’re coming from the airport, the first train departs Terminal 1 at 7:28 a.m. on regular weekdays, and at 7:34 a.m. on weekends and holidays.
