Kichijoji is a fashionable neighbourhood in Mitaka City in the western suburbs of Tokyo. Kichijoji is almost always at the top of surveys of the most desirable places to live in Tokyo. The picturesque Inokashira Park with its large ornamental ponds makes a beautiful centrepiece to the town. The Ghibli Museum – a tribute to animator Hayao Miyazaki’s Ghibli Studios – is also located in the park.

More details on transportation:
From Narita airport terminal you can take a limousine bus or a train.
The "keisei limousine bus" is a direct bus from the airport to Kichijoji station (about 3000yen). From Kichijoji station bus stop it's a 1,000yen taxi riders our house. The Taxi ride will take 10 minutes. I guarantee this is the easiest way after a long flight. The bus counter for getting a ticket is just outside the arrivals (immigration) exit gate at narita airport. Buses leave every 30 to 45 minutes. The bus will take about one hour and 40 minutes.
If you take a train, you will have to transfer two times to get to Kichijoji. It will cost about 1,800yen. Or the Skyliner train (special VIP train) will cost about 2,700yen and you will still have to transfer two times (Not as easy with bags and crowded trains). If you use a train you can go either to Kichijoji station (then taxi 10 minutes) or Kamishakuji station (then walk 10 minutes). The train will take about one hour and 50 minutes.
Narita international airport is a bit far from TOKYO... but that's the usually used airport for visitors and all airlines...
My wife and kids, and sometimes visiting parents always use the keisei (highway) limousine bus to and from the airport.
