Travelling between Haneda Airport and Tokyo

Arrival

Arriving passengers have three major options for travel into Tokyo from Haneda Airport: the bus, the monorail or the train.

The bus allows you to take your luggage conveniently with you (in the bottom of the bus) but the down-side is that it is frequently caught in traffic jams.

The train and monorail is highly predictable and fast. The down-side is that there are no special arrangements (porters or carts or adequate space in the train car itself for larger suitcases) for luggage. It is possible to send your bags directly from the airport by takkyubin (courier service) to any address in Japan. An address in Tokyo costs about 1,800 yen per bag.

By Bus

  1. Purchase a ticket at the Limousine Bus ticket counter located in the arrivals area of the international terminal or on the 1st floor if you arrive at either one of the domestic terminals. Ticket prices start at 900 yen, and depend on your destination.

  2. Get on the bus at the stop indicated by the Limousine Bus agent. Buses run every 10-15 min. and stop at hotels and stations throughout Tokyo. It takes about 40 minutes from Haneda airport to Tokyo depending on the area that you are going to.

By Monorail

  1. Purchase a ticket to Hamamatsu Station at the Monorail ticket vending machines located in the arrivals area of the international terminal, or on level B1 if you arrive at either one of the domestic terminals.

    Tickets to Hamamatsucho station cost 470 yen for either the local or express service. It takes 13 minutes from the international terminal to Hamamatsucho Station by the express service, and 20 minutes by the regular service. Trains run constantly between 05:17 and midnight.

  2. From Hamamatsucho station, you can make your way to Tokyo or Shinagawa stations, both of which are hubs for Shinkansen (high-speed train) lines. You can also transfer to the many local and regional JR lines, as well as the Tokyo Metro and the Toei Transport network.

By Keikyu line

  1. Purchase a ticket at the Keikyu ticket vending machines located in the arrivals area of the international terminal, or on B1 if you arrive at either one of the domestic terminals.

  2. On the Keikyu line, you can travel to Shinagawa Station, a hub for some Shinkansen (high-speed train) lines, or to Daimon (located nearby Hamamatsu Station). Both stations offer transfers to the JR lines.


Departure

Generally speaking, the reverse operation will get you back to Haneda.

If you are leaving from a hotel serviced by the Limousine Bus, consult the hotel bell captain for the required advance departure time and make a reservation.
