I might go to Tokyo this month just for a couple of nights. I am going there to buy a guitar and have a quick browse around the city. I think the best place for guitars is in the Shibuya area. Does anyone know the best (or cheapest) way to get from Narita to Shibuya? Also, any tips for cheap accommodation. I'll be travelling alone and I am on a limited budget.

Thanks for your help

Take the Keisei Skyliner to Nippori, or Nishi-Nippori.
From there take the Yamanote Line in the direction towards Shinjuku.
Shibuya is three stops after Shinjuku.

You could take Narita Express to either Tokyo station or Shinjuku but it should cost more. I think it costs about 3,000 yen.
It is faster, though.

I think you could even take a bus to Shibuya station.
If you have a lot of luggage, the bus is better.


You can check train times on the website called Jorudan.
It is in English and Japanese.

No, the best place to buy a guitar is in Ochanomizu, otherwise known as "Guitar Town".

It's on the Sobu line.
