Narita airport is well known as the international airport in Tokyo. But since the government allows Haneda to increase the slot of the international flights, the number of the international flights departs from and arrive at Haneda airport has been increasing in these days.

In this post, I would like to show you the access between Haneda airport and downtown Tokyo. I will explain you about the deals too.


Haneda is located in the metro Tokyo 23 municipalities. Haneda is much closer to downtown Tokyo than Narita.

You may get downtown Tokyo by Tokyo Monorail, Keikyu railway and Airport Limousine bus. In this post, I will explain about these access between airport and downtown Tokyo and some deals for these airport access. But before I explain this I would like to tell about the procedure of arrival.

How to find the way to get a bus or a train at Haneda airport international terminal

Actually it is quite simple. When you exit from the immigration and the custom area, you will see the hall, like the picture below.

You will find Airport Limousine bus ticket counter on your left hand side right after you exit from the immigration and the custom area.

Airport Limousine bus ticket counter

Just keep going straight from the exit and you will find Tokyo Monorail station and Keikyu station. Those are just a few steps away from.

Keikyu station will be on your right hand side. (C) JP Rail

It takes less than one minute to get the station from the exit of the immigration and the custom. Many station staffs are there to help you how to buy a ticket and find a direction. And also there are lots of signages in a few languages. It is very travelers friendly.

JR East Travel Service Center (JR Pass and other JR passes exchange place)

JR East Travel Service Center is next to Tokyo Monorail ticket gate. This photo was take in a few years ago. Now this travel center is bigger.

JR East has Travel Service Center at Tokyo Monorail Haneda Airport International Terminal station. You can exchange/purchase JR pass, JR East Pass, Tokyo Wide Pass and some more JR deals here. You can start using the pass right after you arrive at Haneda in Japan if you like. Please see the link below to find the detailed information:

JR East official site – Haneda Airport service center

If you arrive at Haneda in very early morning or very late night, you may not be able to exchange/purchase Pass. Shinagawa station or Tokyo station is the substitute choice.

JR Pass and all JR deals cover Tokyo Monorail only. You cannot take Keikyu Railway, Airport Limousine bus and any other bus services.

Tokyo Monorail

Tokyo Monorail runs between Haneda airport and Hamamatsucho. It takes 18 minutes by the fastest train, “Haneda Express” which stops at a few major stations only. It takes 23 minutes by other monorail trains.

Tokyo Monorail runs every 3 to 5 minutes in daytime. And it runs in 5 to 10 minutes in very early morning and very late night. Monorail starts to run around 05:00 am and the last one run around midnight.

Please see the official site in the link below to find more information:

Tokyo Monorail official site.

Hamamatsucho is three stations away from Tokyo station by JR Yamanote line. If you want to take the Shinkansen to Nagoya, Kyoto or Osaka after arrival at Haneda, you have to take Yamanote line to get Tokyo station.

You may find the information about Hamamatsucho station in the post below:

If you use JR Pass or other JR rail passes, Tokyo Monorail is covered and you may take this. However if you Keikyu Railway, you can get Shinagawa directly from Haneda and catch the Shinkansen to Nagoya, Kyoto and Osaka. Even though Keikyu is not covered by JR Pass or other JR deals, please consider to pay extra and get Keikyu railway. It is much easier to take the Shinkansen to Nagoya, Kyoto or Osaka. I will explain about Keihin Kyuko Railway later.

If you take the Shinkansen to get Kanazawa, Toyama, Sendai, Hakodate, you can get Tokyo station by Tokyo Monorail and Yamanote line. You cannot catch the Shinkansen to these places at Shinagawa.

If you stay at the major hotel in downtown Tokyo, you may take Airport Limousine bus. You can get the hotel directly. I will explain about Airport Limousine later as well.

Recommended deal – Monorail and Yamanote Line Discount Ticket

It includes Monorail one way fare to Hamamatsucho and the fare to all stations on Yamanote line. You can get Shinbashi, Tokyo, Akihabara, Ueno, Ikebukuro, Shinjuku, Shibuya and many other stations on Yamanote line at 500 yen.

Please see the link below to find more information about this deal.

Keikyu Railway

Keikyu Railway – Airport Limited Express

Keikyu is one of the major private railway companies in Tokyo. This railway connects Haneda airport and Shinagawa. It takes 16 to 18 minutes by the fastest train, Airport Limited Express. But Airport Limited Express is operated in daytime only. Most of trains are Airport Express. This train stops all stations between Haneda terminal and Keikyu-Kamata. And also it stops at a few stations between Keikyu-Kamata and Shinagawa. It takes about 25 minutes by Airport Express.

The train runs every 5 minutes during daytime and 10 minutes during early morning and late night.

Please check the detailed information in the official site:

Keihin Kyuko Haneda Access website

Shinagawa is one of the biggest terminal stations in downtown Tokyo. And as I mentioned above, the Tokaido Shinkansen to Nagoya, Kyoto and Shin-Osaka stops at Shinagawa. You can change the trains easily in Shinagawa. Please find the information about Shinagawa station in the post below:

Keikyu Railway also runs on Toei Subway Asakusa line. Please see the route map at the beginning in this post. Keikyu Railway, Toei Subway and Keisei Railway are connected and these three company’s trains go through each other. That means you can get Asakusa and other stations on Toei Subway directly from Haneda. Most of Airport Limited Express and Airport Express go through this subway line.

As I told you above, if you stay at the major hotel in other areas in Tokyo, you may take Airport Limousine bus.

Recommended deal – Keikyu Haneda/Subway Common Pass

This deal offers Keikyu Railway from Haneda to downtown Tokyo and Tokyo subway one day unlimited ride. Keikyu Railway offers several deals. Please see the link below to find more information about these deals.

Airport Limousine bus

Airport Limousine takes you most of major hotels in Tokyo. The fare is starting from 600 yen. It is varied by the destination. Please check the details in the official site:

Tokyo Airport Limousine Bus official site

Recommended deal – Limousine and Tokyo Subway Ticket, Return Voucher and combo deals

There are many deals available.

The first one is “Multi voucher” and “Return voucher”. These are two round trips and round trip discount ticket. If you look for the deal which covers only Limousine bus, this deal is recommended.

The second one is Limousine and Subway pass. This is same type of the deal as Keisei Skyliner and Tokyo Subway Ticket which I explained above in this post.

I picked only two deals here but you can find all deals in the official site :

Late arrival and early departure

Many flights arrive at Haneda in early morning or late night. If your flight arrives late night and/or depart in early morning, you have to think how to move between Tokyo and Haneda. You may find the late night and early morning train schedule in my PDF timetable. Please find it in the link below:

Due to COVID-19, it may be operated on a schedule different from the normal timetable. Check the train schedule on Hyperdia.

I show several sample schedules between Haneda and some places in Tokyo by Monorail and Keihin Kyuko. Please see the post at, How to take Tokyo Monorail or Keihin Kyuko for late arrival and early departure at Haneda.

I hope this post gave you the way to move between Tokyo and Haneda.

    Hi Takeshi,
    I planned to go to Japan on 30th June 2016, through Haneda.
    I will stay at Sheraton Disney for 3 days.
    How to go there from Haneda using train or bus?

    On 5th July I will go to Osaka using Shikansen.
    Where I can buy the ticket from?

      Hi Cynthia,

      You can get Disney Resort by limousine bus directly.

      Shinkansen ticket can be purchased at Maihama station in advance where is located near by Disneyland.

        Hi, my plane is scheduled to arrive at Haneda on 9am.
        Do I need to wait until 11 am to catch the limo bus. Since I’m From Jkt-Indonesia, I will arrive at International airport. I have to go to terminal 1 or 2 to catch the 11am bus, right? Which one is nearer?
        Although I will stay at Sheraton Disney, I prefer to have lunch and dinner not in the hotel>. Can you suggest nearest restaurant around Disney, and how to get there?

          Takeshi / JPRail.com says:

          Hi Cynthia,

          I think 11 am bus is better because you will spend one hour to clear custom and immigration. You can take the train but you have to change the trains at least three times.
          You can go either Terminal 1 or 2. It’s not much different.

          You have to take Disney resort line to get Maihama station/Resort gateway station. There are lots of restaurants in Ikspiari.

          There is no restaurants around hotel area.

    Hi Takeshi,

    I will go to haneda airport from odaiba. But when I’m searching the best route thru Hyperdia, I’m a bit confuse whether to choose Haneda International Building or Terminal or Terminal 1 or Terminal 2. Need your advise. Thank you.

      Takeshi / JPRail.com says:

      Hi Lyana,

      If you arrive from international flight, you will take a train at Haneda Airport International Building or Haneda Airport International Terminal.
      Haneda Airport International Building is Tokyo Monorail’s station. And Haneda Airport International Terminal is Keihin Kyuko’s station. As you see the post above, these two stations are located at same place.

    Hi..we plan short visit to Tokyo..arriving Haneda airport at 08.50 25 April …our hotel is 111-0032 Tokyo Prefecture
    Taito-ku Asakusa 2-6-7. Any idea how to get there easily? Our return flight is on 28 April at 11.50. We would like to be at the airport latest 09.30 hrs. How is the traffic in the morning? What would be the best/easiest way to get to the airport in the morning?? Thanks

  6. Hi,

    We are planning a family trip (2 adults ans 2 childs of 8 and 10 years old) to Japan from february 8th to february 23rd.
    Here is our plan:
    Monday 8th: We will arrive at Kansai International Airport terminal 1 at 9:45am. We need to go to Kyoto where is our house.
    Tuesday 9th: Visit of Kyoto and Arashiyama
    Wednesday 10th: Go to Nara
    Thursday 11th: Go to Osaka and spend the day there
    Friday 12th: Visit of Kyoto
    Saturday 13th: Go back to Kansai International Airport for Seoul…

    So for that part of the trip I was thinking about buying the “ICOCA & HARUKA” card for the adults and 1 day pass for the childs to go to Kyoto from the airport. Then for everyday travel, I thought about buying normal price train tickets as well as the last day for the childs to go back to the airport. What is your point of view?

    Then we’ll come back to Japan on february 17th.
    Wednesday 17th: Arrival at Haneda Airport. Go to Tokyo and then to Nikko.
    Thursday 18th: Nikko
    Friday 19th: Go back to Tokyo
    For these 3 days I thought about buying the JR Tokyo Wide Pass for the 4of us. Is it a good idea?

    Saturday 20th: Visit of Tokyo, Shinjuku, Harajuku, Shibuya
    Sunday 21st: Tokyo artificial island Odaiba
    Monday 22nd: Tokyo, Asakusa, Akihabara
    Tuesday 23rd: Narita International Airport
    I thought that for these 4 days we could use the N’EX Tokyo Round trip ticket but it doesn’t seem possible to buy it somewhere else than in Narita Airport!

    Thank you for giving me your advices about the best way to travel during our stay in Japon.

  7. Dave says:

    Dear JPRail,

    I will reach Haneda airport by 10.30pm and I’m going to APA HOTEL

    The advise that I have gotten so far is to take the bus to tokyo station then from there take the Keiyo line to Shiomi station.

    Do you think I can make it on time? I’m not sure what’s the last departure time for the buses and trains 🙁

    Thank you!

    I’m traveling with my family of 5 to Japan this December. We will arrive to Haneda Airport and will be staying in Shinjuku area for the first 3 days. How can I reach there?

    From Tokyo we are going to Osaka using our JR Pass. How can I check the train schedule availability for Tokyo – Osaka on th 17th of Dec, Osaka – Kyoto – Osaka on th 18th of Dec, Osaka – Kobe – Osaka on the 19thof Dec, and Osaka – Tokyo for the 20th of Dec?

    I have been trying to use the hyperdia apps to check for the availability schedule but they keep on giving me “Route is not available” answer.

    With the JR Pass I should have be able to travel from Tokyo to Osaka don’t I?

    Thank you
