JR East to discount Narita-Tokyo express fares for foreigners

TOKYO -- East Japan Railway, known as JR East, will slash the ticket price for its express train service from Narita Airport to destinations in and around Tokyo for visitors from abroad.

Competition in public transportation to and from Narita Airport is heating up. This week, JR East is halving the ticket price for its express train service to a flat 1,500 yen.

     Starting Friday, the one-way price will be a flat 1,500 yen ($14.20) for regular cars on the Narita Express heading to the capital. This is roughly half the current 2,940 yen for those traveling to Tokyo Station. The children's fare will come to 750 yen. The new low prices will be good even during holidays and other peak travel periods.
