Haneda Airport

jump to:   hotels  -  tours  -  links

Haneda Airport (Hc`, Haneda Kūkō, HND), formally known as Tokyo International Airport, is located less than 30 minutes south of central Tokyo, considerably closer to the city center than Narita Airport, Tokyo's other airport. Compared to Narita Airport, Haneda Airport handles way more domestic flights, but fewer international flights. With over 60 million passengers per year overall, Haneda Airport is by far Japan's busiest airport and ranks among the world's five busiest airports.

Haneda Airport was opened in 1931. In 1978, the then newly constructed Narita Airport took over most of Tokyo's international air traffic, while Haneda Airport was designated to handle the capital's domestic air traffic. Haneda Airport resumed handling an increased number of international flights in 2010 with the completion of a new runway and a new international terminal building; however, most international flights (except those to nearby Asian destinations) were banned to often inconvenient early morning and late evening slots.

International Terminal

In March 2014, the international terminal was increased in size by 50 percent, and the airport started handling a certain amount of intercontinental flights during the more convenient daytime hours. In late September, a new hotel, the Royal Park Hotel The Haneda, will open inside the international terminal building, further enhancing the airport's attractiveness for international travelers. One part of the hotel will be located inside the transit zone, allowing transit travelers to overnight without passing immigration.

Domestic flights use the airport's two other terminals: terminal 1 is mainly used by JAL, while terminal 2 is mainly used by ANA. Free shuttle buses operate frequently between all terminal buildings (outside of the security check). Transit passengers between the domestic and international terminals may also use the monorail or Keikyu Railway for free if they get a special transit pass at the information counter. In addition, ANA and JAL operate direct buses for checked-through passengers between the secure areas of the international and their respective domestic terminals to further reduce transit times.

Late night and early morning flights

Many international flights arrive and depart in the early morning (between 4am and 6am) and the late evening (between 10pm and 2am). Travelers arriving at Haneda Airport around 11pm or later, in particular, should be aware that trains and buses into central Tokyo stop operation by around 0:30 and that there are not many hotels in the immediate vicinity of the airport.

Late night transportation

The Tokyo Monorail and Keikyu Railways stop operation shortly after midnight. The last services still provide a connection to the JR Yamanote Line at Hamamatsucho Station and Shinagawa Station respectively, from where the Yamanote Line can take you to most of Tokyo's main districts, including Shinjuku, Shibuya, Ikebukuro and Tokyo Station until around 1am.

Airport bus companies operate a few late-night connections from Haneda Airport's international terminal to various places in Tokyo and Yokohama, but note that they are more expensive than buses departing before midnight (typically twice the regular fare). Below are some of the most useful departures:

There are plans to expand bus services beyond 1am from autumn 2014.

Hotels around the airport

Haneda Airport's international terminal is open 24 hours and could serve vigorous budget travelers as a place to spend their first or last night. Two hotels are located inside the domestic terminals of the airport, and an additional hotel will open in the international terminal in autumn 2014. Note that buses, monorails and trains stop running between the terminals around midnight, and that it is not possible to walk between the international and domestic terminals. A taxi ride between the international and domestic terminals costs around 1500 yen:

Accessible in a short train or taxi ride (1500 to 2000 yen) from the international terminal building are a few hotels around the Otorii and Anamori-Inari Stations of the Keikyu Airport Line:
