Subject: stopover in Tokyo
Hi, Annette, You should have enough time to get into Tokyo and back. Although Narita city is closer to NRT airport, but Narita city is an industrial city, not pretty at all. Do not substitute Narita City for downtown Tokyo if you can help it, IMHO. There are trains and buses operating between NRT and Tokyo. The Airport Limousine Bus probably is the easiest. You may take it from NRT to the Tokyo City Air Terminal (TCAT), and then take a taxi or subway from TCAT to your first city attraction. Look up the return bus schedule and reverse the direction taking bus from TCAT to NRT. One way fare is about 2900Yen, and the ride takes about one hour. Some of the Limousine Buses run direct from NRT to major downtown hotels for 3000Yen, but these rides take longer, and buses are not as frequent. Look up the website for details:

Good luck.
