I'll be flying into Tokyo Haneda at 10:25pm on a Sunday and rather than try to figure out the public transit system that late in the day when I'm already probably going to be exhausted I was thinking I'd prefer to just take a taxi to the hotel. My question is... do taxis loiter around at the airport, waiting for passengers, as they do in the USA?

Yes, of course there are. Depending on where you're going, it may cost you up to ¥10,000 (~US$100) if you board after midnight.


If you're wanting to save a little money on extortionate Tokyo taxi fees there is a direct monorail service from Haneda Airport to Hamamatsucho, cutting the distance required by taxi significantly. Outside Hamamatsucho (the main 'departing to Haneda' station) are a huge fleet of taxis. The monorail is fast and the station is inside the terminal.

    Just beware that the last weekday service departs at 0:10, although clearing Customs etc in an hour and half should not be a problem. Also, depending on where you're going, the Keikyu railway (also within terminal) might get you closer to your destination. It's nowhere near as fun though ;) Commented Feb 26, 2014 at 2:40
  • True, I arrived around 11pm on an Emirates flight recently and made it with about 10 minutes to spare. Just make sure to not dawdle as you leave :) Commented Feb 26, 2014 at 11:25
  • I had considered that option for a flight but decided I wouldn't be able to get to suburban Tokyo so chose another flight. Good call on taking the monorail to central Tokyo and then a taxi though... that way even if trains shutdown you can still get place, but save the cost of the trip into Tokyo.
