 Japanese Timetables: Narita Express   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
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.

 Tokyo Express - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Tokyo Express was the nickname given by United States sailors and marines to the Japanese attempts to reinforce and resupply their forces during the battle of Guadalcanal and subsequent operations in the Solomon Islands in World War II.
Airplanes from Henderson Field on Guadalcanal made it too dangerous for Japanese ships to approach during the day, so at night small groups of fast destroyer transports would race east through "The Slot" — the narrow sea between Santa Isabel and Savo Island — unload, and race back again.
Attempts by the American navy to interdict these convoys led to a series of naval battles, beginning with the battle of Savo Island on 9 August 1942 and continuing until the battle of Cape St. George on 26 November 1943 put an end to the Tokyo Express and so to Japanese resistance in the Solomons.

 Transportation - Rail - Japan Railways (JR)
Services range from the Shinkansen Super Express or ‘Bullet Train’, which connects popular destinations throughout Japan, to local rail systems for travel in and around major cities such as Tokyo and Osaka, including convenient rail transfers to Narita Airport (Tokyo) and Kansai International Airport (Osaka).
Travel on Super Express (Shinkansen), Limited Express and Express trains, requires payment of a basic fare plus a surcharge, the cost of which varies according to which service you are using and the season of travel.
Although the JR network offers a very frequent service on major routes*, it is a good idea to make advance reservations, particularly during peak holiday periods when transportation is always heavily booked.
