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.

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.

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:

    Hi Takeshi,

    Im landing in Haneda at 6:45 pm and my flight leaves at 12 am. I wanted to try and get to Shibuya, but cant seem to find a definitive answer as to the fastest way of getting there. Any tips or suggestions? Thanks

  2. Will says:

    Dear Takeshi
    What is the best way to get from Haneda to Akasaka area if I arrive around 6am in the morning? Can I catch a direct train from the airport to Shimbashi and then a taxi? Thank you!

      Hi Will,

      The easiest way is taking Keihin Kyuko. Most of Keihin Kyuko train go through subway Toei Asakusa line. The train takes you to Hibiya directly most of times. (You might have to transfer at Shinagawa or Sengakuji)

      But if you take train after 7:00 am on weekday, it’s peak hour. Train is crowded. Some lines are crazy.

      You can take Monorail to Hamamatsucho. This line is better than Keihin Kyuko. You may take taxi from Hamamatsucho. Trains after Hamamatsucho is crazy too if you travel on weekday.

    Hi, Takeshi, How to travel from Haneda International to Shinjuku Washington Hotel since we will arrived @ 2230. Should we take bus or train. Appreciated yr advise. TQ

  4. cks says:

    hi takeshi, i was looking for info on getting from narita t1 to haneda domestic terminal 2 but couldn’t find it so i have to ask you here.

    my inbound flight on ANA arrives 1400 sunday at narita t1.
    from there i need to get to haneda domestic t2 for a flight to KIX also on ANA – flight time is 1800.
    Seems a bit tight!

    it looks like the best option is to use keisei access express direct to haneda – from keisei website i either take the 1444 train (if i breeze thru immigration) or more likely the 1524. I should arrive either at 1622 or 1702.

    some questions:
    1. what is the latest checkin time for domestic flights? i’m carrying 1 check-in baggage + 1 carry-on.

    2. a bit confused on hyperdia – which option should i pick?

      Hi cks,

      It’s Haneda airport domestic terminal. Because other two are monorail station.
      If I were you, I will take airport limousine because it’s easier.

      I have just visited Japan a few weeks ago. I spent two hours to clear custom and immigration.
      You can check in 30 minutes prior to departure time. There are lots of last minutes check in passengers in Haneda, especially business travellers. As long as you check in 30 minutes before, you will be fine.

      • cks says:

        the last time i landed in narita it took me maybe 40-50 mins to clear immigration – so i’m hopeful it’s the same this time. were you travelling during peak period?

        i thought the limo may take longer i.e. unpredictable traffic jam.

          Hi Cks,

          I arrived in Japan on Feb 26. That was a shoulder season. I don’t know why. I usually spend 45 minutes to clear but at that time, it was so crowded. In these days, number of tourist to Japan is increasing. So it may be getting longer than before.

    Hi Takeshi…i will be arriving late in Haneda and read about a place called Heiwajima. In their website,they have the late night package which includes shuttle to Heiwajima. What i could not find is how frequent is the shuttle back to Haneda after 7am? As we want to go back to Haneda in the morning to buy the discount metro day pass.
