  • Haneda Airport is Japan's busiest airport.

  • Located only 15 minutes from central Tokyo

  • it is much more conveniently positioned than Narita Airport.

  • Traditionally, Haneda has handled the majority of the city's domestic arrivals and departures.

  • However since it was expanded in 2014

  • the airport has been servicing an increasing number of international flights.

  • With this in mind, here is a brief overview

  • of how to maneuver through Haneda Airport and get to downtown Tokyo

  • for passengers arriving on international flights.

  • After de-planing, the first stop is immigration.

  • To expedite the process, each passenger should have their disembarkation form filled out

  • before approaching the counter.

  • Here, an officer will ask a few questions about your trip, scan the fingerprints of

  • your index fingers and take your photo.

  • Assuming everything goes well, you can move on to the baggage claim.

  • Everyone arriving on an international flight into Narita Airport

  • except for those connecting to another international flight

  • must collect their checked luggage here

  • this includes passengers connecting to domestic flights.

  • With baggage in hand, Customs is next.

  • Each family will need to hand in a Customs Declaration Form which should be filled out ahead of time.

  • Passengers with items to declare should use the red lanes

  • while those with nothing to declare should go through the green ones.

  • Finally, after clearing Customs, you will enter the public area of the terminal where

  • there are many useful services you may want to take advantage of before leaving the airport,

  • such as

  • Currency exchange & ATMs

  • Wi-Fi and SIM card rentals

  • Information counters

  • Baggage delivery and storage

  • Showers, Nap rooms, and lounges

  • Rental car pick-up and many more

  • Also, if you purchased a Japan Rail Pass, this can be picked-up at the

  • JR EAST Travel Service Center located in the arrival lobby near the Tokyo Monorail ticket gates.

  • If you are transferring to a domestic flight, or need to get to another building

  • there are free shuttle buses that operate frequently between the terminals.

  • When you're ready to leave the airport and head into the city, there are many options to consider

  • In the basement is the Keikyu train which is accessible from the second floor.

  • The first floor has buses and taxis

  • and the third floor has the Tokyo Monorail

  • which can be accessed from either the second or third floors.

  • When choosing between train options, here are some important points to consider

  • The Tokyo Monorail goes directly to Hamamatsucho Station which is on the popular JR Yamanote Line.

  • The trip takes around 15min and does not allow for seat reservations.

  • It is also worth mentioning that while the monorail has space to store luggage, the Yamanote

  • Line does not, and during rush hours both can get quite crowded.

  • Next are the trains operated by the Keikyu Railway.

  • These go primarily to Shinagawa Station, where you can transfer to the Yamanote Line or continue

  • on to the Asakusa Subway Line which leads to Asakusa and Tokyo Skytree, and some of

  • the trains even continue as far as Narita Airport.

  • Keep in mind that these are regular commuter trains which do not have dedicated luggage

  • storage spaces or reserved seating.

  • Aside from trains, the other options for leaving the airport are

  • Airport Limousine buses which go to a variety

  • of locations throughout Tokyo and the surrounding areas

  • And taxis which are the most expensive option, costing between 5,000 to 11,000yen or even

  • more depending on where you're headed.

  • Lastly, in our opinion Haneda is one of the most enjoyable airports in all Japan.

  • With a plethora of dining and entertainment options in the international terminal

  • it's a fun place to spend time and an ideal airport to have a long layover.

  • We hope this video helps you know what to expect when navigating through Haneda Airport.
