Indoor fountain in the reception area of the lobby, Hilton Tokyo Narita Airport Hotel. The open air central courtyard is surrounded by a large, circular lobby. Water from the fountain cascades under the wall and flows to the stone mountain-shaped fountain in the center of the courtyard.

This indoor water feature give the appearance of being joined to the pond outside, with the window in between.
Hundreds of colorful balloons fill the space above the shopping area in the great circular lobby at the Hilton Tokyo Narita Airport Hotel.
On our way to the airport, we saw a lot of directional signs on the side of the road. I felt like a “Stranger in a Strange Land”. If I were driving, and looking for anything but the airport, I’d be lost.
Once we arrived at Narita Airport, a 10 minute drive, the shuttle bus stopped at Terminal 2 to drop off and pick up passengers. Then we were off to Terminal 1.
We arrived at Terminal 1. exited the shuttle bus, retrieved our luggage from underneath and proceeded into the Terminal.
In the next post we’ll check in and spend a fun afternoon at Narita Airport. We’ll then fly to Singapore, take a taxi to our hotel.
