From/to Tokyo Haneda international airport
last update: February 27, 2015
For a westerner it's not common to take off or land at Tokyo Haneda
airport, because most of flights operating from/to this airport are domestic flights or to nearby Asian countries.
Compared to Tokyo Narita airport, which is located in Chiba, Haneda airport is located within Tokyo area so it is much closer
to the various city centers.
The rail alternatives to get to Haneda airport are two and are both very convenient.
This private railway company connects Haneda airport to Hamamatsucho station
, conveniently served by the JR Yamanote line
and located near the skyscrapers of Shiodome district. The ride takes 15 minutes and costs 490 yen.
Although it isn't a JR line, this route is covered by the Japan Rail Pass.
This other private railway company connects the airport with Shinagawa station
through the Airport line
. Shinagawa is one of the major railway hubs of Tokyo and is served by the JR Yamanote line
The ride takes 15 minutes and costs 410 yen.
(Yokohama station) is also easily accessible through this company changing at Keikyu-Kamata station
, the only intermediate stop between the airport and Shinagawa, and taking the Keikyu Main Line
(overall 25 minutes, 480 yen).
Several buses for various destinations serve Tokyo Haneda airport (for more information visit the official website
of the airport), but if you have to go to Tokyo or Yokohama train is the best solution.

How to use Govoyagin
Govoyagin is a very useful website to enrich your travel experience

Because of the language barrier (and more), in Japan it is very difficult to interact with the locals and to get off the tourist track.
Thanks to Govoyagin you can find a lot of interesting and sometimes unique guided tours and activities
all over Japan (and not only in Japan), that you would otherwise never be able to enjoy.
But there's more: on Govoyagin you can also buy tickets
