Since I have received many inquiries regarding late arrival and early departure at Haneda on my previous post, How to access from Haneda airport to downtown Tokyo, I show you more detailed time schedule and how to get on Tokyo Monorail and Keihin Kyuko at Haneda Airport.

Late arrival at Haneda

If you will arrive at Haneda before 22:00, you can access most of places in Greater Tokyo. You don’t need to worry about it. If you will arrive at Haneda after 22:00, you need to think about how to transfer to your accommodation. Don’t think about overnight trains and buses on arrival day. You cannot catch those after 22:00 arrival.

It is hard to say how long it takes to go through Immigration and Custom. Haneda airport is smaller than Narita airport. Most of gates are within 10 minutes away from Immigration and Custom. Usually it takes 30 minutes to 1 hour. It depends on how busy Immigration and Custom are. It is quite fast to handle the baggage in Japan. Please try to go through Immigration and Custom as fast as possible.

Let’s see the sample schedule after arrival.

Access to Tokyo, Ueno, Ikebukuro, Odaiba, Maihama (Tokyo Disney Resort) – Tokyo Monorail

Access to Tokyo, Ueno, Ikebukuro or any station on Yamanote line between Hamamatsucho and Ikebukuro
The last Monorail depart from Haneda airport international terminal at 00:10. This train connects with the last train of Yamanote line to Ikebukuro at Hamamatsucho.

Haneda 00:10 -> (Tokyo Monorail) -> 00:25 Hamamatsucho 00:31 -> (JR Yamanote line) -> 01:06 Ikenbukuro.

This Yamanote line last train stop at all stations between Hamamatsucho and Ikebukuro. For example, Shinbashi 00:33, Yurakucho (near Ginza) 00:35, Tokyo 00:38, Akihabara 00:42, Ueno 00:46.

Access to Odaiba
The last train is 23:55. You need to get off Monorail at Tennozuisle (天王洲アイル) and transfer to Rinkai line. Please see the map at Tokyo Monorail website to get the detail about transfer to Rinkai line from Monorail.

Haneda 23:55 -> (Tokyo Monorail) -> 00:06 Tennozuisle 00:23 -> (Rinkai line) -> 00:06 Tokyo Teleport

Tokyo Teleport station is near Odaiba station of Yurikamome. Yurikamome from Shinbashi to Odaiba is more popular route to get Odaiba. But this route is much faster and easier. The fare is 330+200=530yen.

Access to Maihama (Tokyo Disney Resort)
The last train is 23:31. You can take JR Keiyo line train at JR Tokyo station. However Keiyo line platform of Tokyo station is very far from other trains’ platform. For example, if you transfer from Yamamote line train to Keiyo line train at Tokyo station, it takes at least 10 minutes. Tokyo station is one of the biggest station in Japan. You may loose your way. So transfer at Tennozuisle and Shinkiba is much easier.

Haneda 23:31 -> (Tokyo Monorail) -> 23:47 Tennozuisle 23:53 -> (Rinkai line) -> 00:03 Shinkiba 00:15 -> (JR Keiyo line) -> 00:21 Maihama

The fare is 330+320+150=700yen.

Access to Shinagawa, Kamata, Shinjuku, Shibuya, Yokohama, Asakusa, Roppongi – Keihin Kyuko

Access to Asakusa

Many Keihin Kyuko trains go through Toei Subway Asakusa line. You need to change the train at Keikyu Kamata or Sengakuji. But you can change it at the same platform most of times.

Weekday : Haneda 23:39 -> (Keihin Kyuko Airport Express) -> 23:50 Keikyu Kamata 23:52 -> (Keihin Kyuko Rapid Limited Express) -> 00:23 Asakusa

Weekend/Holiday : Haneda 23:20 -> (Keihin Kyuko Airport Express) -> 23:48 Sengakuji 23:49 -> (Toei Subway Asakusa line) -> 00:08 Asakusa

The fare is 600yen.

If you miss above connections, go to Ueno by Monorail and JR Yamanote line. See above sample connection to Ueno. Later connection is available than this Keihin Kyuko-Subway connection. After arrive at Ueno, take a taxi to Asakusa. Taxi fare is around 1,400 yen. It is much cheaper than taxi fare from Haneda to Asakusa.

Midnight bus services

Keihin Kyuko operates bus service as well. They have several bus routes. Please see Keihin Kyuko Bus website Late night and early morning service to get the details.

And Limousine bus offers some late night bus service too. Please check it at official site of limousine bus.

In case of missing all trains and midnight bus

In case of that, unfortunately your choice is only very costly taxi only. The fixed rate is applied to most of places in downtown Tokyo. Please see the link below to find the rate table:

Early departure at Haneda

The schedule of the first trains are following:

Keihin Kyuko : Shinagawa 05:02 -> 05:16 Keikyu Kamata 05:19 -> 05:27 Haneda International Terminal

Tokyo Monorail : Hamamatsucho 04:58 -> 05:12 Haneda International Terminal

There is no trains and bus to catch these above trains. If you want to take these first train, you need to take taxi to get Hamamatsucho or Shinagawa.

If you take a flight before 6:30am at Haneda, I don’t think it is in time by above trains. You can access to Haneda from Omori station or Kamata station in early morning. Please see Keihin Kyuko Bus website Late night and early morning service to get the details. Otherwise you need to go to Haneda in midnight and stay overnight in the airport.

Early arrival at Haneda

Keihin Kyuko 05:26 departure to Shinagawa

Tokyo Monorail 05:17 departure to Hamamatsucho

Most of trains start to operate around 05:30am in Greater Tokyo. Even Shinkansen starts to operate at 06:00am. The first arrival flight is around 05:00am at Haneda. There is no problem to access to downtown Tokyo.
*If you want to exchange Japan Rail Pass after arrival at Haneda, Take Tokyo Monorail and JR Yamanote line to Tokyo station. The exchange window at Tokyo station open at 07:30am. Shinagawa station is the closest location to Haneda. But they open at 09:00am

Late departure at Haneda

There is nothing to worry about. The trains are operating between 05:30 and 00:00. You can access to Haneda anytime.

  1. Hello Takeshi,
    We are a party of 4 and will be arriving Haneda International Terminal on 20 Oct 2018 at 06:45 am. We plan to go to Aomori immediately with JR EAST PASS (Tohoku area). This is our plan:
    1. Exchange JR Pass at JR EAST Travel Service Center
    2. Take the Tokyo Monorail to Tokyo Station (is this possible?)
    3. Board the Shinkansen KOMACHI 7 to Akita and change to LTD. EXP TSUGARU 3 to Aomori
    Please advise if the above is the best option in term of early arrival to Aomori.

    Thanks and best regards

    1. Hi Gary,

      Monoral goes to Hamamatsucho. You have to change to Yamanote line train to Tokyo from Hamamatsucho. And then take Shinkansen.
      You don’t need to go to Akita. You can get Aomori from Tokyo directly. Please see the link below to find the timetable:

      You can take Hayabusa to Shin-Aomori. Aomori is just one station away from Shin-Aomori by a local train.

      You intend to take Komachi 7 which depart from Tokyo at 8:40. I don’t think you can get Tokyo station by 8:40. You will spend one hour for custom, immigration, and baggage pick up. And then exchange the pass and book a seat. It may be a line up for exchanging the pass. If everything is smooth, you can take Hayabusa 9 at 09:08 departure from Tokyo. Maybe you will take one later Hayabusa 11 at 09:36. But anyway you will be Aomori much earlier than you thought by Komachi and Tsugaru.

      1. Hi Takeshi san,

        Thank you for the expert advice. I was not aware that the JR Pass cover Hayabusa as Hyperdia groups it together with Nozomi and Mizuho. I don’t see Hayabusa 9 in the Hyperdia on 21 Oct 2018. However I am OK with Hayabusa 11. Thank you once again.

  2. Hello Takeshi,
    Thank you for your website and helpful tips.
    We will be arriving at Haneda Airport at 18:30. Our hotel is in Shinagawa. I read somewhere else that we should take the Keikyu Line to Shinagawa station. Is that different than what you mentioned in this article? (Keihin Kyuko). If so, what is the difference and which route do you recommend?
    Also, you replied to someone else’s question regarding suitcase on the train during rush hour. Would rush hour be over by 18:30 and we can bring our suitcases?
    Thank you.
