Tokyo airport stay

Tokyo airport stay

Hi I have a layover through Tokyo on the way to Saigon for about 7 hrs. I never have been and always wanted to see a little of Tokyo. Is this enough time to maybe get my Tokyo Visa, get on a train and grab dinner then get back on time for my flight out? This is for someone that does not know how to get around in Japan. Thank you in advance for any information you can provide.

I wouldn't go into Tokyo (60mins each way by train). But you could go into Narita township for a wander and meal.

If you have 7 hours during the day time, then a trip into Tokyo is not a bad idea. It takes 40-75 minutes one-way depending which part of Tokyo you visit. However, I have no idea about your visa situation, if you need one.

Yes I would need to get a Visa for Japan. I was told I can get it at Narita airport? Not sure.
