Wheelchair train travel from Narita Airport to Tokyo Station with luggage?

  • Wheelchair train travel from Narita Airport to Tokyo Station with luggage?

    Hello to all in this community, this will be my first time visiting Japan with my wife, (I am a paraplegic and wheelchair user and my wife is able bodied). We will arrive at Narita Airport and my question is…… How easy or difficult is it to catch a train from Narita Airport to Tokyo station using a wheelchair with luggage? Our hotel is only 3 – 4 minutes walk from Tokyo station so I think we’ll be able to find that. I already have a Suica card on my mobile phone and will have an eSIM installed before travelling. I understand that taxis can be very expensive so the best way would be using the train. Any help or recommendations would be gratefully received. Thanks in advance, Richard

    First of all I am a wheelchair user too. Muscular disease. I am travelling to Japan as well. My wife is always researching this kind of things. She uses Google maps to plan the trip. Find Narita Airport and the terminal you are arriving ( in your ticket). Then hit the route button and fill in the hotel name. Hit the public transport button. Maps will tell you the train names, distance, where to transfer, etc.

    Then have a look at YouTube. Many video about subway use.

    We used the trains from Haneda to our hotel in Ikebukuro. I’m sure the same will work for you from Narita.

    We used a luggage service to send our baggage to airport and hotel to hotel to transport our luggage for us. This is the company we used: https://airporter.co.jp/order/create/order/?city=tokyo, there are other companies that are available from the airport. We didn’t utilize them from the airport as we had other family members that caught a bus from airport to hotel with all our luggage. (the bus wasn’t wheelchair accessible, so 2 of us caught the train).

    Your best bet is to use someone like Jun or Hideo.

    It’s also much easier to fly into Haneda.

    I use a power WC and have taken the Narita Express train (NEX) directly to/from Tokyo Station.

    Last fall, we tried a different train line called Keisei to Ueno. We found the Keisei was a bit faster and less crowded than NEX.
