Haneda Airport is located outside Tokyo city limits. But don’t worry; getting from Haneda Airport to Tokyo is relatively quick and easy (compared to if you were to land in Narita and trying to get into town). In this guide, I’ll go over your options and how much they cost.
Taxi from Haneda Airport to Tokyo
Cabs in Tokyo are expensive, but the taxi fare from Haneda to Tokyo is not unreasonably high. For example, if you take a taxi from Haneda Airport to Shinjuku, the fare would be about 7,000 yen. If you travel in a group and share the cost, it’s not much more expensive than taking the bus. Keep in mind that there’s a surcharge of about 20% when you take a taxi in Tokyo between 10 pm and 5 am.
Haneda Airport Limousine Bus
The Haneda Airport Limousine Bus is not, in fact, a limousine. It’s a regular orange bus that runs from Haneda Airport to Tokyo. (The same company also runs the limousine bus from Narita Airport to Tokyo.)
The limousine bus is super convenient because there are many stops, mainly at major railway stations and hotels, so it’s likely there’s a stop near your accommodation. There are also attendants who will help you with your luggage and answer any questions you may have.
If you’ll be traveling from the Haneda Airport to downtown Tokyo, you can take the Airport Limousine for about 1,000 yen each way (the exact fare depends on where you get off). For example, taking the Haneda Airport Limousine Bus to Shinjuku station will set you back 1,230 yen. From Haneda Airport to Tokyo station, it’s 930 yen.
Haneda Airport Express Bus (Keihin Kyuko Bus)
There’s another bus service you can take from Haneda Airport to Tokyo. The Haneda Airport Express Bus, also known as the Keihin Kyuko Bus, has extensive routes and stops at major train stations and attractions. If you want to go straight to attractions like Tokyo Disneyland or even Mount Fuji instead of your hotel, take this bus instead of the Airport Limousine.
The fares depend on where you get off. For example, traveling from Haneda Airport to Tokyo Station will cost 930 yen.
Keikyu Line Train from Haneda Airport to Tokyo
You can take the Keikyu Line train from Haneda to Tokyo. It would cost you about 600 yen to take this train from Haneda Airport to Shinjuku; the exact fare depends on the route and the distance. Note that this is a regular commuter train, so it could be crowded and slow, not to mention complex to navigate. You may have to change trains and haul your suitcases up and down stairs. If you have big bags, it may not be a good idea to travel by train.
Tokyo Monorail from Haneda to Tokyo
The Tokyo Monorail takes you from Haneda Airport to Hamamatsucho station, where you can change trains to reach other areas of the city. It only costs 490 yen to get to Hamamatsucho station. It’s quite a scenic ride as the monorail runs along the Tokyo Bay. Again, consider taking one of the buses instead if you have a lot of luggage.
