Long airport layovers can be dull. You’re in a different country, if only for a few hours – why not get out to see some sights or experience a bit of the culture! The Narita Airport Transit & Stay Program helps you do just that by offering a range of both guided and self-guided tours for travelers on a budget. Our English-speaking volunteer tour guides are completely free – you only need to cover personal expenses like transportation – letting you focus on the tour and not on your wallet.

Our English-speaking guides, local to Narita, will get you safely to and from the airport and help ensure you experience the warmth and hospitality of Japan. Tours can usually be customized to match your interests and budget. Simply tell us which optional activities you wish to do, along with any other requests, when you arrive at our reception counter.
