My flight is Jakarta-Haneda, Narita-Canada on the same day. I need to transfer from Haneda to Narita by shuttle bus. Do I have to book the ticket beforehand or could I just pay the ticket fare on the spot?

    Be sure you allow plenty of time. There are a lot of steps here (customs, security, etc.) and Tokyo can have horrific traffic. – Mike Harris Jun 8 '18 at 13:12
  • @MikeHarris The Narita-Haneda bus actually avoids central Tokyo and is rarely caught in traffic. – lambshaanxy Jun 8 '18 at 21:13
  • @jpatokal That's good to know. It is still much more complicated than changing planes within the same airport, though. – Mike Harris Jun 9 '18 at 16:06

The bus company has airport terminal floor plans on their website which shows ticket counters, so it must be possible to pay on the spot, though there may be queues:

Narita Terminal 1

Narita Terminal 2

  • Yes, it's possible to buy tickets on the spot. In my experience the buses are rarely full, although your mileage may vary. – lambshaanxy Jun 8 '18 at 21:14
  1. You do not need to book beforehand. Tickets are sold at counter near the exit gate.
  2. You can also go by train as a fallback. Train is cheaper, and takes slightly longer.
