How to take the train from Yokosuka station to Narita Airport. It's really simple. I took the JR line to Ofuna, then hopped on the Narita Express there. I believe the Narita Express actually stops at Yokosuka Station but I hopped on a slightly earlier train then picked up N'EX (Narita Express) in Ofuna. The ticket booth was closed when I left early in the morning so I was glad I got the ticket the day before. It was actually really simple. Once at Ofuna you get off and head up the stairs. Look for the signs that say Narita Express (N'EX) and follow those. Hop on the Narita express and find your assigned seat according to your ticket. Terminal 2 and 3 get off first once you hit Narita and Terminal 1 is your last stop. Make sure you know what Terminal you need to go to before you leave. You can also pick up the Narita Express in Yokohama and Tokyo among other places. The Narita Express Ticket cost 2390 Yen.
