Haneda airport is situated on an island, close to the Ota Ward center.

Can I go to the international terminal of Haneda airport by bicycle from the continent (and back)?

Is there a place where I can leave my bicycle for a few nights?

Google Maps can not always be trusted, but it proposes a walking route (meaning it might contain stairs and going through places forbidden to bicycles):


  • Why "close"? Haneda airport is located in Ota city (more usually called "Ota ward").

This YouTube video should help with a route. Looks like some sidewalk riding is required, but in an area you're unlikely to find that many pedestrians.

The comments there discuss parking a little bit (an anecdotal statement you could use the staff parking for a few hours), but the official answer is that "there is no bicycle parking at the airport."

There is a luggage storage service, but there are size and weight limits and "we may not accommodate your luggage because of a shape or content of the item." I'd contact them in advance. They may require your bike be disassembled and boxed, which would obviously present some complications.

  • It is worth adding that riding on the sidewalks is illegal..

  • @Rilakkuma It actually depends on the width of the sidewalk etc, and for what it's worth, the law is for all practical purposes not enforced. Nov 1, 2021 at 11:30

Well I tried to using google maps "pedestrian" path finding and failed.

For reference purpose both this ways are forbidden to bicycle:

I guess that leaves you with only one route.

  • That looks like Apple Maps, not Google Maps. Nov 28, 2016 at 2:22
  • Thanks for the tip! If you have a chance to try the third option (Kanpachi-dori route), please let us know :-)

  • Unlikely it will come any time soon, due to the lack of long term parking, and relative distance from my home. But I'll think about it. @ZachLipton the screenshot is there for illustration purposes. My point remains the same.
