I am a US Citizen who is intending to travel to Malaysia / KUL. But I have to transit on Narita Intl / NRT.
This is my first time traveling to Asia, and I am not sure how gates terminals work, and not even sure if the plane lands on the same terminal before I take the next plane for Malaysia. I won't be staying more than 3 hours upon departure or arrival.
Do I need any special visa in Japan before I take the plane to Malaysia from there? Will I be taking the plan from the same Terminal?
Upon researching I found that Japan does not need a visa for US Citizens for tourism. But I could not find anything specific to transiting.
Also, do I have to go through immigration on Narita? or is there an express lane that let the transit traffic go through without talking to Japan immigration?
I will not be carrying any luggage. Just a carry on bag. I do not intend to exit the Narita airport either.
