Yes, Shinjuku and Shibuya are 24-hour places of interest, but do you really want to overnight there between long-haul flights, with your baggage in tow? There are many hotels in Hamamatsucho ( one train from Haneda ). You can explore a bit in ...

Coincidentally, a steward from that flight who took care of the emergency was one of the crew of my flight, and he and the couple next to me started talking about it and shared the whole experience ...

And 19:00 is still too early.Trains usually run until after midnight In case you are tired and want to catch some sleep there are always the "Manga Kisha" (cyber cafes with internet, Mangas, movies) with reclining sofa, showers, free drinks ...

Your question has both legal, but perhaps more important, also moral aspects. Generally speaking, when airborne, an aircraft is subject to the legislation of the carrier's home country. So far so good. I am not sure if medical doctors according to US law is both legally required to help in an emergency and liable to damages they inflict even if practicing ...
