 Japanese Timetables: Narita Express   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The Narita Express is a special JR (Japan Railways) service that generally runs non-stop from Narita Airport to Tokyo Station, where most of the trains divide into two sections that proceed on to Yokohama and to Shinjuku (and sometimes Ikebukuro) respectively.
This is because most people use the Narita express to go from the airport to one of the other stations, rather than to travel between two of the latter.
In this particular case, for example, Narita Express No. 3 goes from Yokohama to Tokyo by a route that does not include the branch on which the stations in these two rows (Ikebukuro and Shinjuku) are found.

On the other side of the train station from the bus stop is the downtown area, including the JR Narita train station (and tourist info), and the shop-filled Omotesando street that winds its way down to Narita's main attraction, the Naritasan Shinshoji temple.
I had chosen the Garden Hotel Narita over the many hotels closer to the airport for its promiximity to downtown, but the bus still takes about ten minutes, so I probably saved only 10-15 minutes of bus ride each way.
You may find hotels either closer to the airport or closer to downtown Narita more convenient for your purposes, but for the combination of price, amenities and convenience, the Garden Hotel Narita is a reasonable choice if you elect to stay near the airport or spend some time touring Narita.

 Narita Restaurant Review
For those who like the elegant works of edible art known as sushi, Narita’s is among the freshest available and I recommend the Narita Sushi ($18.95).
Though pre-determined combinations of sushi piece abound on the menu, the Narita Sushi lets you select you favorite eight pieces from the sushi alacarte menu (with only a few exceptions) and one roll from the "best six-pieces menu" to design your own meal.
But whatever your tastes, Narita is designed to offer an exploration into the Japanese cuisine with as many open-ended options as the curious diner could desire.
