From Haneda International Airport to Tokyo with a Japan Rail Pass

A 30 minutes ride to the major stations


Haneda Airport has three Terminals. Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 are used by the two major Japanese airlines JAL and ANA, as well as domestic companies and low cost carriers. 2010 saw the opening of the international terminal which is used mainly by Asian airlines such as Air China, Cathay Pacific, Singapore Airlines but also by major American companies, as well as Air France, Bristish Airways and KLM in Europe. Here is how to reach Tokyo if you arrive in Haneda Airport.

With a Japan Rail Pass, that you will have exchanged at the Haneda JR East Travel Center near the Tokyo Monorail Gate ( 7h45-18h30), the easiest and cheapest way to reach Tokyo is to take the Monorail from the Airport to Hamamatsucho Station. The Japan Rail Pass ( but also the JR East-Tohoku Area Pass, the JR East-Nagano Area Pass, the JR East-South Hokkaido Rail Pass and the JR Tokyo Wide Pass), allow free travel on the Monorail Line
The Tokyo Monorail from Haneda to Tokyo
There are three types of train (Local, Rapid and Haneda Express). The quickest one is Haneda Express but the Local train only takes a few minutes longer.

In Hamamatsucho Station, there are connections with the JR Yamanote Line, the JR Keihin-Tohoku Line, the Toei Asakusa Line, and the Toei Oedo Line. The connection with the JR Lines is very easy as the two stations are nearly a the same level. To catch the subway, it is convenient but not so easy as you have to connect via Daimon Station.
