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 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!

  1. Hi,
    My domestic flight arrive in Haneda at 2240. i plan to activate my JR Pass and use tokyo monorail.
    1. would i be in time to catch the last monorail?
    2. can i stop at Tennozu Isle

    thanks

    1. Hi Lina,

      If you intend to exchange JR Pass in Haneda, you can’t. The window is open until 18:00 and it’s located in international terminal.
      You can catch the monorail easily from domestic flight. You also can stop at Tennozu Isle.

      Cheers,

      1. Hi,
        I was planning to change it earlier at New Chitose airport.
        1. If i were to take the Tokyo Monorail Haneda Express will it stop at Tennozu Isle?
        2. will immigration check at Domestic airport be faster?
        3. if i were to use monorail, would purchasing ticket be a problem since i do not have IC / Suica card yet…

        thank you

  2. Aloha Takeshi,
    Our group of 7 adults will be arriving at Haneda at 10 pm in mid-April 2016, and will head straight for Sheraton Grand Tokyo Bay Hotel. Your suggestion of the Tokyo MonoRail to Maihama Station sounds like a great plan. I have two questions:
    1. Is baggage going to be a problem at that hour? I believe we will be bringing 1 large checked luggage per person (7), at least 1 small overhead baggage per person (7), and I will also be on an electric scooter for mobility.
    2. Once we arrive at Maihama Station, will there be a taxi van or 2 taxis available to take us to our hotel?
    I’m looking forward to your response and to our trip.
    Mahalo.

    1. Hi Charlene,

      1. Baggage is always issue when we travel by train. Especially in Tokyo, train is always busy even after 22:00. Please see the last photo in the link below. You will see how busy late night Tokyo is.
      https://jprail.com/travel-informations/trip-report/2014-winter-aizu-nikko-hakone-tip/trip-to-tohoku-and-nagano-in-2014-winter-part-1-from-narita-airport-to-tokyo.html

      The trains that you will take are all commuter trains. You may need to stand up in the train. All stations have elevator and escalator. But you need to go up and down with luggage. Especially if you or someone in your group use electric scooter, you may spend longer time to transfer.

      2. Taxi is available at Maihama station. You can take it. But most of passengers take Resort line and bus. Please see the link below to find my experience in TDL.

      I have no idea about taxi fare. But I guess about 1000 to 2000 yen.

  3. Hi, I am coming visit Tokyo with my family 3 of us. I have late arrived at haneda at 10.30pm. I am not sure can I managed to catch last train to Roppongi if I missed the last train,what is best option I can do.
    I am thinking if I managed catch last train in Haneda to Hamamatsucho but I might miss the Oedo line from Hamamatsucho to Roppongi. What cost of taxi I am looking to paid if I have no choice I missed my train. Thanks

  4. Hi Takeshi,
    We would like to follow your suggestion to take the last monorail to Hamamatsucho Station and then transfer to Yamanote Line to go to Ueno Station. Is the transfer time between these two lines enough for us to catch the next train? We are afraid since that is the last train to Ueno. And just in case we miss the train, is it easy for us to find taxi in the midnight at Hamamatsucho Station? Thanks

    1. Hi Nora,

      It’s not hard to find a taxi at any stations in Tokyo. You can transfer in 6 minutes because Hamamatsucho is not a big terminal station and lots of signage and easy to find the direction. But if you need to take a taxi, taxi fare will be around 3000 yen. Try to catch the last train to save your budget.

      Cheers,

  5. Hi Takeshi,

    My arrival at Haneda airport is scheduled at 10.30pm(weekdays) Do you think I can catch the monorail to Hamamatsucho station in time? If I can’t make it in time, what is the next best option?

    My hotel is in Roppongi area.

    Thank you and your advice is much appreciated.

    Best regards,
    Yvonne

  6. Hi,
    Our family of 5 will be arriving Haneda at around 1100pm. We want to take the overnight sleeper bus-Willer express to Nagano. I wish to get information on their nearest departure place from Haneda and time but unfortunately its all in Japanese. Appreciate your help.

    Thanks!

  7. Hi, I am arriving at 10 pm on a Saturday. I need to go to New Otani INN, Osaki, Shinagawa-ku. I have been looking for days online trying to figure out how to get to my hotel. This page has been so helpful, thank you.

    Just to be sure; I take the red line (Keikyu) from Haneda Airport to Keikya-Kamata station and then wait and get back on the (Keikyu) line to Shinagawa station. Then take the (JR line) to Osaki?

    Do I need to buy tickets at each stop or can I get it all done at the airport?

    Much Aloha,
    Kari

    1. Hi Kari,

      Regarding ticket, you can purchase to Osaki at Haneda. if you can’t find how to purchase it, there are a few staffs and they will show you how to buy it.

      You may get a train that goes to Shinagawa directly.

      Cheers,

  8. hi,i will arive at haneda airport by 23:00. how can i go to shinjuku since the time is no enough.that why i dare not booking any hotel now. pls advise better way to solve the problem..Is it i stay any hotel near to airport and transfer to shinjuku hotel the following day, or by taxi? but i think the taxi fees is very high right? hope you can give me a advise to help my problem.

    best regards.

    1. Hi Elvis,

      As long as your flight will arrive on time, you will be able to take the last train to Shinjuku. But nobody knows it will be on time or not. The last bus to Shinjuku is 0:00 departure. So it’s not much different from the trains.

      If I were you, I will stay near airport. I don’t like to take any risk. As you worry about, taxi fare will be more than 5000 yen.

      Cheers,

      Takeshi / JP Rail

  9. Hi we are arriving Haneda on 6/13 @ 11PM and the connecting flight is 1:20PM on 6/14. Would like to use this 13-hour layover to visit Tsukiji Market. However it seems the rail system does not start to operate until 5:30am? By then it would be too late for the auction viewing. So is the 4am taxi the only option (plan to take the Oedo line from Tsukijishijo Station back to Haneda)?

    Also anyone had experience stayed at the Haneda Capsule Hotel yet?

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Andy

    1. Hi Andy,

      Unfortunately trains do not run between 0:00 and 5:30. If you want to see auction, stay in hotel within walking distance of market or using taxi as you think. I don’t know exact taxi fare. I estimate it will be more 5000 yen.

      Cheers,

      Takeshi / JP Rail
