Take the Orange Limousine Bus, which is just outside the exit after you pass customs bag check.  Tickets can be purchased at counter inside. When you get off the bus in Shinjuku, the Keio Highway Bus Center is just around the corner, behind the bank in front of you, and adjacent to Yodabashi Camera (giant electronics store.  (see above for bus directions to Kawaguchiko/Solar Cafe).   Train is a more scenic and relaxing ride, but you have to go down 4 floors at the airport and look for the Narita Express Train to Shinjuku.  Local trains are cheaper, but take a long time and you may need to transfer.  When you arrive in Shinjuku, look for the West Exit, and the Keoi Highway bus center, across the street from Keio Department Store and adjacent to Yodabashi Camera. Travel safe, and see you when you get here!!!
