I have received many inquiries regarding the late arrival and the early departure at Haneda. I will show you the detailed timetable between Haneda Airport and downtown Tokyo by Tokyo Monorail and Keikyu Railway (Keihin Kyuko Railway) in this post.

Arrival procedure

If you will arrive at Haneda before 22:00, you can access most of places in downtown Tokyo. But if you will arrive at Haneda after 22:00, you have to think about the access to your accommodation.

It is not a good idea to plan taking the overnight train or the overnight bus on the arrival day. It is impossible to take it after 22:00 arrival. Even if your arrival time is a bit earlier, you still have a risk of the flight delay. Please stay in downtown Tokyo on the arrival day.

It is hard to say how long you will spend to go through the immigration and the custom. Haneda airport is smaller than Narita airport. Most of gates are within 10 minutes away from the immigration and the custom area. You may be able to go through in 30 minutes. But it depends on how busy the immigration and the custom will be. Please expect that you will spend one hour to complete the immigration, the custom and the baggage pick up.

The train timetable for the late arrival.

There are two trains from Haneda. These are Keikyu Railway (Keihin Kyuko Railway and Tokyo Monorail.

You can find the timetable of the late departure trains in the link below:

I would like to tell you about the routes to the major destinations before showing the timetable:

Access to Tokyo, Ueno, Ikebukuro via Hamamatsucho by Tokyo Monorail and JR Yamanote line

Tokyo Monorail Haneda Airport International Terminal station. It is connected directly to the airport terminal building. (C) JP Rail

This is the primary way to get most places in eastside of downtown Tokyo. You will change Tokyo Monorail and Yamanote line train at Hamamatsucho. But these two railway’s Hamamatsucho stations are located at the same location. This is very easy to transfer.

Hotels in Shinagawa Station – Tokyo
Hotels in Haneda Airport
Hotels in Shinjuku Station – Tokyo
Hotels in Tokyo Disney Resort – Maihama, Tokyo/Chiba

Access to Maihama (Tokyo Disney Resort) via Hamamatsucho and Tokyo by Tokyo Monorail, JR Yamanote line and JR Keiyo line

You have to change the trains twice at Hamamatsucho and Tokyo. As I mentioned above, the train transfer in Hamamatsucho is easy. But it is very far from Yamanote line platform to Keiyo line platform in Tokyo station. Please read the following post to make sure the direction in Tokyo station.

Access to Tokyo-Teleport (Odaiba/Diver City) via Tennozu Isle by Tokyo Monorail and Rinkai line

You will take Tokyo Monorail to Tennozu Isle which is one station before Hamamatsucho. Tokyo-Teleport is only one station away from Tennozu Isle by Rinkai line. Tokyo-Teleport is located in the center of Odaiba area.

Access to Shinagawa, Shinjuku, Shibuya by KeiKyu Railway and JR Yamanote line

Transfer gate of Keihin Kyuko and JR lines at Shinagawa station. Both Keihin Kyuko Shinagawa station and JR Shinagawa station connected directly each other. (C) JP Rail

This is the primary way to get Shinjuku and Shibuya area. You will take Keikyu Railway (officially Keihin Kyuko Railway) from Haneda to Shinagawa. And you will change the trains at Shinagawa. Both Keikyu and JR Shinagawa stations are same location. There is the transfer gate which you can find the photo above. You can go through this gate to change the trains. Please see the link below to find the detailed information of Shinagawa station:

Most trains from Haneda takes you to Shinagawa directly. But you may have to change trains at Keikyu-Kamata too.

Access to Asakusa, Nishi-Ginza via Shinagawa and Sengakuji by Keikyu Railway and Toei Subway Asakusa line

You can get Asakusa by Keikyu Railway and Toei Subway. Many Keikyu Railway trains go through subway line. These are different railways but you can get Asakusa from Haneda without any transfer in many train connections.

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 1,500 yen. It is much cheaper than taking the 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.
Limousine bus, Haneda airport routes

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:

Tokyo Hire-Taxi Association official site, rate table

Early departure at Haneda

You may find the timetable of the early departure trains in the link below:

JPRail.com PDF timetable (valid until mid October 2019)

Both Keikyu and Tokyo Monorail start to operate the train around 05:00 am. But you may not be able to the earliest train because there is no trains running to get Shinagawa or Hamamatsucho which are the terminal station of Keikyu and Monorail. If you really have to arrive in Haneda in very early morning, you should stay near Haneda or Hamamatsucho or Shinagawa.

Early arrival at Haneda

Most of trains start to run around 05:00 am in Greater Tokyo. Even Shinkansen starts to operate at 06:00 am. The early arrival is not an issues to travel.

Late departure at Haneda

Most of trains run until midnight. You do not need to waste your time in Haneda.

Hope this post helps you to build your trip plan!

      Hi Keline,

      There is no other choice. Only taxi is available. But taxi fare will so expensive. I don’t know how much it will be, but I’m sure it will be much more than 10000 yen.
      There is a bus that goes to Shibuya at 00:30. Shibuya is a bit closer than Haneda to Tachikawa. But you still need to take a taxi from Shibuya.

      I hope you can make 00:10 bus. You can’t purchase bus ticket online. But you don’t need to.

      Cheers,

    Hi,

    I have question regarding buying tickets. I plan to take 00:10 Monorail to Hamamatsucho and then take JR Yamanote line at 00:31 to Tokyo. From there take Keisei bus to Narita airport.

    I am worried that the transit at Hamamatsucho station is only 7 min and not enough time for me to buy a ticket and find the correct platform. Is it possible to buy the monorail ticket + JR Yamanote ticket + Keisei bus ticket at Haneda International airport?

    Thank you.

    PP

      Hi Janet,

      There is a way to get there. But it is too hard for overseas travellers.

      First of all, you have to go to Tokyo station anyway. And then take Keisei bus from Tokyo station. Unfortunately there is no English site. It is in Japanese, but I put a link:
      http://www.keiseibus.co.jp/kousoku/day/nrt16.html

      Reservation is recommended. But there is no English online reservation.
      https://secure.j-bus.co.jp/ks/Result.mvc

      If seat is available, you can take the bus without reservation.

      I understand it is too complicated. But as far as I know, this is the only way.

      Cheers,

      Hi STKW,

      JR pass cover all reserved seat surcharge except overnight trains. So you don’t need to pay.
