Narita to Yokohama

What is the best way to get from Narita to Yokohama?
I see a bus and a train option. Both seem relatively expensive (around $30- $40 per person one-way).
Are there cheaper options? Between the train and the bus which one is better? Our flight lands in Narita late evening.

Thanks!

A previous post of yours asked about areas to stay in Tokyo - I guess you have decided to stay in Yokohama?

Not sure where you are coming from, so don't know how tired you will be....

Personally I am a budget traveler but depending on the time/convenience I would splurge for the direct route to Yokohama which is the Narita Express at 4290 JPY, no transfers required unlike the other train possibilities.

Hi Mara,

We are staying for 2 nights in Yokohama and 3 nights in Tokyo.
We got a great deal for a good hotel in Yokohama, and hence the decision.
Plus it seems like a good hub to make daytrips to Kamakura etc.

Thanks for the recommendation on the train.

There's a round trip deal on the N'Ex for 4,000Y

The cheapest way would be one of the 1,000Y buses to Tokyo, then train to Yokohama, but it'd be a tough slog.

Hi Travel12, where in Yokahama are you staying?

We booked a hotel right near one of the exits of the Bashamichi station, so we took the train but we landed in Haneda which is nearer to Yokohama. The change at Shin-Yokahama was not difficult.

I did check from Narita (as at one point we thought we'd book a flight into Narita Airport) and that was similarly straightforward with one change at Yokahama rather than Shin-Yokahama.

Kavey - we are staying near the Yokohama station.
someotherguy - thanks for the prices. Seems like the train might be the most straightforward, but also the most expensive.

There is no general best. The timing of your arrival and available trains/buses would determine the convenience.

Direct:
1944 JR
2000 Bus
3600 Limousine
4294(2000) NEX (round trip / 2)

With one transfer:
1364 Tokyo Shuttle-(Tokyo)->JR
1655 Keisei-(Funabashi)->JR
