Haneda Airport (Tokyo International Airport)
Haneda Airport (HND), also known as Tokyo International Airport, is the closest airport to Tokyo. It's around 30 minutes by train from the center of Tokyo, making Haneda more convenient to the city than Tokyo's other major airport, Narita Airport. Haneda Airport has three terminals. Terminal 1 is a hub for Japan Airlines (JAL) domestic flights, along with Skymark Airlines and some Starflyer flights. Terminal 2 is a hub for All Nippon Airlines (ANA) domestic flights, along with Air Do, Solaseed Air and some Starflyer flights. Terminal 3 is the international terminal. Free shuttle buses take you between the three terminals, making transfers easy. All three terminals have direct links to train and monorail services into Tokyo. The airport is expanding to accommodate more visitors for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, with a new complex, HANEDA AIRPORT GARDEN, due to open in spring 2020. HANEDA AIRPORT GARDEN will have hotels, shopping, events spaces and a bus terminal.
How do I get from Haneda Airport to Tokyo?
The Tokyo Monorail connects all three terminals to Hamamatsucho Station in around 15 minutes.
From Hamamatsucho Station, you can transfer to the Yamanote Line for destinations in central Tokyo including Tokyo Station, Shibuya Station and Shinjuku Station.
Shinagawa Station: take the Keikyu Line directly from any of the three terminals. The ride is around 20 minutes.
