Crossroads in Tokyo
Tokyo Haneda International Airport

Everything you need to know before departing from or arriving to Tokyo Haneda Airport

Transportation from Tokyo Haneda Airport

David Eiselt updated 4. 2. 2024

From Haneda Airport, we primarily use two train lines to get to one of Tokyo's many downtowns. For a complete map of the Tokyo subway system, visit tokyometro.jp.

There are also complementary bus services available, particularly for transport to the outskirts of Tokyo or other cities. Of course, you can also use taxis and ride-sharing apps. However, a taxi ride to the city centre can be significantly longer than a train ride due to traffic jams.

Tokyo Monorail

The overground automatic train, the Tokyo Monorail, is the fastest connection between Haneda Airport and central Tokyo.

The official website with exact timetables and current ticket prices can be found at: tokyo-monorail.co.jp.

Timetable and route

The monorail runs between the airport and Hamamatsucho Station, where you transfer to a Tokyo circle line called the JR Yamanote line or Loop.

The stations at the airport are always on Arrivals Level 1F and are located separately at each of the terminals.

There are two types of trains to the airport:

  • Haneda Express - stops only at all terminals and at the Hamamatsucho terminus
  • Local trains - stop at all stations

How often does the Tokyo Monorail run and how long is the journey to the city centre?

  • Travel time Hamamatsucho - 14 minutes (Haneda Express), 24 minutes (local trains)
  • Travel time Shibuya (transfer required) - approx. 30 minutes
  • Frequency - 4 to 6 minutes, late evening 15 minutes
  • Last train from airport - 23:44
  • First train from Hamamatsucho station - 4:59

Tickets and prices

Ticket offices and ticket machines can always be found outside the entrance to the platform. Tickets cannot be purchased online.

Cash and foreign credit cards can be used at ticket machines and ticket offices.

  • JR Pass: can be used for travel on the Tokyo Monorail

Prices are based on distance and are always the same from all terminals. You can also purchase transfer tickets for the JR Yamanote line at the ticket office.

  • Hamamatsucho - 500 jpy
  • Shibuya, Shinjuku, Yoyogi, Otsuka - 710 jpy
  • Tokyo Station - 670 jpy
  • Ikebukuro - 780 jpy
  • Ueno, Nippori, Meguro, Ichigaya - 680 jpy

On Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays, pay the flat rate 500 jpy to travel from the airport to anywhere on the Tokyo Monorail or JR Yamanote Line.

Keikyu Trains (京急)

Keikyu trains offer the widest range of direct connections without transferring to central Tokyo, as well as the best connections to long-distance services and express trains at Shinagawa Station.

At Shinagawa Station, many Keikyu Line trains connect seamlessly with Asakusa Line services without the need to change trains.

For timetable searches and official information, please visit: haneda-tokyo-access.com.

Timetable and route

Trains pass through all of central Tokyo without changing trains and continue on to Narita Airport NRT (some services only).

Stations at the airport are always on the basement level of B1F.

  • Terminal 1/2 - a common station between the two terminals
  • Terminal 3

There are various express and local services to the airport. Tickets are bought for a specific connection and time, so once you have found your destination, the machine will find the nearest connection for you. Please refer to the train number and departure time for guidance.

To travel to different parts of Tokyo, you'll often need to change trains at Keikyu-Kamata or Shinagawa stations.

  • Airport-Shinagawa journey time - approx. 25 minutes
  • Travel time Airport-Higashi Ginza - approx. 35 minutes
  • Frequency - 3 to 8 minutes direct trains to Keikyu-Kamta station; 5 to 15 minutes direct trains to central Tokyo
  • Last train from airport - 23:48 to Shinagawa station; 0:10 to Keikyu-Kamata station (departure times from Terminal 3 always 2 minutes later)

Buses to Tokyo

Countless bus lines run to various districts of Tokyo and are convenient for direct travel without transfers to virtually anywhere in the city.

The downside is that they are prone to long delays due to traffic jams as well as lower frequency compared to the Tokyo Monorail or Keikyu trains.

Buses run every 20-30 minutes on average on each line, and it takes about 60-90 minutes to get to central Tokyo.

The stops are always right outside the arrivals hall and are clearly signposted.

Tickets and prices

Tickets can be purchased at the ticket booths in the arrivals hall or directly at the stops. Prices to central Tokyo range between 1 000 jpy a 1 500 jpy and are therefore 2-3 times higher than train and monorail tickets.

You can always pay with cash and foreign credit cards.

Timetables and routes

There are dozens of different routes from the airport to all of Tokyo, a complete list of which is shown in the transport map below.

For a complete list of all routes, visit the airport's website: tokyo-haneda.com/bus.

To Nartia Airport

Transferring from Haneda Airport to Narita is very easy and non-stop.

You can choose between bus lines and Keikyu trains.

Train

Direct services run 1-2 times per hour and the journey takes approximately 100-120 minutes. The cheapest tickets cost 1 840 jpy, but there are also more expensive connections with a transfer, which can ironically be faster than the direct trains.

For timetable searches and official information, visit: haneda-tokyo-access.com.

Bus

Buses will offer more frequent connections. The service is operated by a company called Airport Limousine.

The buses run 1-3 times per hour and the journey takes approximately 90 to 115 minutes without changing buses, depending on traffic. Most services only stop outside terminals 1 and 2. Buses only go to terminal 3 at selected times of the day when international traffic is at its heaviest.

The price of a one-way ticket is 3 600 jpy and a detailed timetable is available on the company's website: limousinebus.co.jp/timetable.

Transportation direction Yokohama

The great city of Yokohama actually forms one giant conurbation along with Tokyo, and can be reached from the airport by direct bus lines or, more cheaply, by train with a transfer.

By train

The cheapest way to get there is by Keikyu Line trains with a change at Keikyu-Kamata station.

The frequency of service is very frequent. Trains from the airport to Keikyu-Kamata run roughly every 5-8 minutes, and trains continue on to Yokohama at intervals of 3-12 minutes.

A transfer ticket to Yokohama can be purchased from the ticket machine at the airport for 400 jpy.

Depending on the length of the transfer, the journey time is 26-35 minutes and you can find the connection at haneda-tokyo-access.com.

By bus

More convenient connections are by bus Keikyu Bus running on many routes to all parts of Yokohama.

Depending on traffic, journey times vary between 35 and 55 minutes and ticket prices around 650 jpy.
