Find the cheapest flight to Tokyo
Tokyo has a couple of airports, but the main international gateway for the city (as well as the country of Japan) is Narita International Airport (airport code NRT) which lies about 60 km from the city center. It takes about an hour on the train to get from the airport into downtown Tokyo. When the airport was first being considered in the 1960s, the siting led to a violent conflict between Japan’s government and its people which resulted in some arrests and injuries and delayed the start of construction for awhile. Then when the airport finally opened it only did so under heavy security.
Narita is the main international hub for Japan Airlines and All Nippon Airways and an Asian regional hub for Northwest Airlines and United Airlines.
