Besides taking taxi you will have three options to go to Higashi Shinjuku. 1. Bus to somewhere close to your accommodation. 2 Monorail and then JR or subway. 3. Keikyu train and then JR or subway. You are talking about 72 hr pass which is probably Tokyo Subway Ticket 72 hrs. This ticket allows you unlimited travel using Tokyo's subway system including Tokyo Metoro and Toei subway, but note that these do not cover Haneda airport. What is appropriate depends on the specific place of your accommodation and the time of the day (in the worst case there is no monorail or Keikyu train when you come out of the airport.

Re: Haneda to Higashi Shinjuku 2018/3/8 21:25
Then you might better buy Welcome! Tokyo Subway Ticket

http://www.haneda-tokyo-access.com/en/info/discountticket_welcometokyo...

including one way Keikyu ticket to Sengakuji thereafter you can use Tokyo's subway system.

You can buy it at Keikyu Tourist Information center.

http://tic.jnto.go.jp/detail.php?id=1081

Note that this closes at 22:00. After that you can buy Keikyu ticket and Tokyo Subway Ticket separately. Buy Keikyu ticket to Sengakuji (410 yen, I am afraid you must pay on cash--Japanese yen) at the ticket vending machine (Keikyu) and the 72h Tokyo Subway Ticket at "Tourist Information Center".

Enter the gate (of Keikyu) with the Keikyu ticket and at Higashi-Shinjuku show the station staff your Keikyu ticket and the Tokyo Subway Ticket.

Re: Haneda Airport to Higashi-shinjuku Station 2018/3/9 05:00
Trains departing from the Keikyu station(s) in Haneda Airport run in some different directions.
Please feel free to ask a Keikyu station attendant which train you should take to (A-09) Daimon Station of Toei Subway.

According to the current timetables (for Saturdays),
your last Keikyu train, i.e. the Keikyu train in the last connection by Keikyu and Toei Subway for you to get to Higashi-shinjuku Station, departs at 23:20.

You make two transfers, each changing platforms,
first at (A-09) Daimon Station (E-20) from the Asakusa Line to the Oedo Line
to take a train departing at Track 4, which runs clockwise for Roppongi,
and second at (E-27) Tochomae Station (E-27)
to take a train departing at Track 2, which runs for (E-02) Higashi-shinjuku.

Reaching Daimon Station by 23:45,
you alternatively can take a train departing at Track 3,
which runs counterclockwise on the Oedo Line,
directly to Higashi-shinjuku;
this route requires a little longer time.

Re: PASMO card, Tokyo Subway Ticket 2018/3/9 05:34

Buy Keikyu ticket to Sengakuji (410 yen, I am afraid you must pay on cash--Japanese yen) at the ticket vending machine (Keikyu)

You can get a PASMO prepaid card at a Keikyu ticket vending machine
(from 1500 yen, including 500 yen paid as a deposit)
and use it to travel until Sengakuji Station (407 yen) or all the way to Higashi-shinjuku Station (614 yen).

and the 72h Tokyo Subway Ticket at "Tourist Information Center".

This center is open until 1:00 (past midnight), while KEIKYU Tourist Information Center gets closed around 22:00.
The two information centers seem close to each other.

Haneda Airport International Passenger Terminal
- Introduction of Tourist Information Center
http://www.haneda-airport.jp/inter/en/premises/service/rental_car.html...
- Map around Arrival Lobby on the 2nd floor
http://www.haneda-airport.jp/inter/en/map/floormap/map.html?floorId=MA...
: On this Map,
@this information center is at the position of the green and lager question mark,
@and the Keikyu information center is around the position of the white and smaller question mark.

Alternatively,
you can purchase a 72-hour Tokyo Subway Ticket on Day 2
at Laox Shinjuku Main Store (open from 9:00)
or Bic Camera Shinjuku East Store (in the shopping complex BICQLO, open from 10:00),
and start to use it shortly.

This option works well
especially when tourists are waiting in a queue in the center or,
when the departure of your last Keikyu train is approaching but you still can catch it if you skip the center.

The two large home electric appliance stores (mentioned above)
are each in a walking distance of Exit A1 of Shinjuku-sanchome Station.
You can take a train on the Fukutoshin Line
from Higashi-shinjuku (F-12) (departing at Track 1 or 2)
to next (F-13) Shinjuku-sanchome (arriving at Track 3)
(165 yen when you use a PASMO card).
On weekdays, this station is crowded during the morning commuters' rush.
http://www.tokyometro.jp/station/yardmap_img/_station_%E6%96%B0%E5%AE%...

When you take this option,
you pay 372 yen (= (614 - 407 + 165) yen) more
compared to when you obtain a PASMO card and a Tokyo Subway Ticket in the airport and use them to get to Higashi-shinjuku Station.

In a case where you in the morning on Day 5 travel with this subway pass for three more times,
this option is logically better cost-wise,
on the condition that you don't use another pass.

Enter the gate (of Keikyu) with the Keikyu ticket and at Higashi-shinjuku show the station staff your Keikyu ticket and the Tokyo Subway Ticket.

I suppose you cannot use a Tokyo Subway Ticket in that way, because the time limit is set by a gate machine when you pass through a subway entrance ticket gate.

Getting to Higashi-shinjuku on a Keikyu - Toei Subway through train,
you have nothing to show the time when you entered the subway network;
so, the Toei Subway staff cannot set accurately a time limit on your subway pass to make it cover your subway ride from Sengakuji.

Well, maybe or maybe not. If this is true how they set the time for Welcome! Tokyo Subway Ticket which is a combination of Keikyu ticket and the Tokyo Subway Ticket? I can't find information about how they set the time for Welcome! Tokyo Subway Ticket, but I think there might be some rule for it. Anyway, the OP can ask when buying Tokyo Subway Ticket. In the worst case, the station staff might refuse to use Tokyo Subway Ticket and in that case the OP pay the difference by cash or by IC card I guess.

Was easy! Did keikyu line to Damion then changed to subway to tochomae changed there and got off at higashi shinjuku. I would say it took an hour, they sold me one ticket which covered the whole journey from the machine at haneda. I think it was 600 ish yen.
