NRT 21 hrs layover, need help with train schedule

Jump to last reply

Will arrive NRT Terminal 2 on a Thu at 8:30p and leave from Terminal 2 on Fri at 5:25p. That's a 21 hours layover so plan to overnight in Tokyo, with lodging by the train station.

I would like to know the fastest train between NRT and Tokyo for those hours.

From N'EX schedule here:
http://www.eki-net.com/pc/jreast-shinkansen-reservation/english/wb/common/timetable/e_nex_u/07.html
Looks like the only one that works is Narita Express 54 at 9:46p. But why are there two columns with the same time & name but different stops?

Coming back from Tokyo:
http://www.eki-net.com/pc/jreast-shinkansen-reservation/english/wb/common/timetable/e_nex_d/04.html
Looks like Narita Express 31 at 2:03p Narita Express 33 at 2:33p will work.

From Skyliner schedule here:
http://www.keisei.co.jp/keisei/tetudou/skyliner/us/timetable/index.html#narita2

I am a little confuse about "SU", "AU" and the numbers undeneath. For example, under weekdays on row 21, does it mean at 9:12p & 9:52p, there is a Skyliner that departs for Ueno? And an Access Express at 9:16p? What is the difference between Skyliner and Access Express? Looks like Access Express has couple transfer stations before Ueno so it's slower?

For return, the schedule here:
http://www.keisei.co.jp/keisei/tetudou/skyliner/us/timetable/index.html#ueno
If those numbers are departure time, then how can I tell the arrival time to NRT?

Are there other train options?
Is there a preference between N'EX or Skyliner? or just pick the "next" one that's leaving?
Is to necessary to make advance seat reservation?
With round trip tickets, does it require a pre-select return time or is that flexible?

Thanks in advance for your help.
