    If the bus is big enough. Once we got bumped (not assertive enough to rush on holding a young sleepy kid + carry on) but it actually worked in our favour. The driver organised a taxi and we got there before the bus. Just finished check in when the hordes came through the door.

    Got an email today saying our Airbnb has been ordered to cease and desist. Damn. Was really close to the station too.

    Stayed at Narita Gateway the other night. Flight was late and immigration packed so too late to get to Nagano. Wifey booked us in while waiting inline at immigration. 12,200 for the three of us in a large room so good deal. Got to the shuttle stop and had just missed one so had to wait 45 minutes for the next one. Soaked up that time at the 7-11 and getting our JR passes so not all bad. However if I was with young grumpy kids it might be a different matter.

    Just after a recommendation please. Four guys in their forty’s fly into Narita at about 6pm early next February and have one night in Tokyo before catching the Shinkansen to Nozawa Onsen the next morning. Do you have any semi budget accommodation suggestions? I assume we will want to be near Tokyo station? Thanks!

    Try the Ueno station hotels. Should be cheaper and easier than Tokyo.

    This. Several business hotels in the area.
    Keisei line from Narita to Ueno Keisei station, short walk to hotel. Morning short walk to Ueno JR station for Shinkansen.

    Thanks guys. Will there be much to see/do/eat/drink in that area for that one night as I have never really been to Tokyo before?

    More than enough. Park, temples,markets, shops, bars, restaurants. And of course the 2 train stations.
