You can take the airport shuttle (Airport Limousine Bus) direct from Haneda (International Terminal) to Narita (Terminal 1 then Terminal 2) for 3,100 JPY. It comes fairly regularly (roughly hourly) and takes around 95 minutes. The earliest departure is 06:25. Alternatively you can take the train. The best route depends on time of arrival, but your main ...

Yes. But be careful of course, timewise, if you have a flight. Your best resource that I've found for this is Wikitravel's article on Fuji which has a Get in section. I was there in July but just wanted a view, not a climb, and was coming from Kanazawa on the west coast. We took trains down to Nagoya, and across, and then inland to Fujinomiya. It's ...

On your daytime layover, will most likely take the Tokyo Monorail from Haneda Airport to Hamamatsucho. This will cost you only 490 Yen and only takes about 20 minutes from one end to the other. From there you have a quite wide variety of trains and subway lines to take you around Tokyo. Since you land in Haneda early and the Airport is relatively small and ...

It's possible to get there easily enough: Getting out of Narita: 1 hour Narita express to Tokyo station: 1:30 Shinkansen to Shin-fuji (Shizuoka) station: 1:30 So that's 4 hours travel time to get there, same back including the usual airport time. Leaving 7 hours for sightseeing. One thing about Fuji - it is frequently hidden in the clouds, especially ...

The airport shuttle bus runs 24-hours-a-day, with departures about every 20 minutes during much of the day to hourly from midnight to early morning. Travel time is about 90 to 100 minutes, depending on the terminal of departure at Haneda and arrival at Narita. The fare is ¥3,100 ($27 USD). Another option is the train, as explained by @codinghands in ...

Yes, the observation deck of Haneda's international terminal is the public landside area and open to all. Incidentally, Narita stopped doing checks on entry some time ago, but even when they were doing them, they wanted only ID, not tickets. Plenty of people visit airports to meet or see off passengers.

As far as I'm aware, that's not true. There are departure taxes which vary slightly based on the airport you use, but it makes no difference if you arrived at the same one or not. Simple counterexample: if you book a one-way flight out of Japan, you're not asked where you flew into on your way in. There are two international airports in Tokyo, namely ...

Yes, with no additional fee, but you must fold your bicycle and put it into a bicycle bag. Tokyo Monorail's official website says: 自転車はそのまま車内に持ち込むことはできません。 持ち込む場合には、自転車を解体、もしくは折りたたみ、専用の袋(輪行袋)に収納した上でご乗車ください。 Translation: You can not enter the train with a bicycle as-is. If you want to bring it, you must disassemble the bicycle (front wheel, or ...

There is no way to ship your luggage between Haneda and Narita airports in such a short delay. Shipping companies require at least two days to do so. Here is the closest solution (courtesy of The Wandering Coder) If you can get to Tokyo Station with your luggage before 11AM, you can bring your bags to the Sagawa Tokyo Service Center. From there, they ...

First of all, if you've been sold the entire itinerary as a single ticket, it's by definition a valid connection, and UA will put you on the next flight for free if you don't make it for a sensible reason (incoming flight delayed, etc). So don't worry too much. That said, it's going to be a bit tighter than I'd recommend. Four hours would be more than ...

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.

The answer is no, Softbank doesn't have a monopoly. Telecom Square, literally the next shop over on Haneda's international arrivals floor, also sells voice & data prepaid SIMs on the Y!Mobile network, which is actually a Softbank subsidiary. The baseline price is higher but gets you more data, at ¥5500 for 1GB or ¥7500 for 3GB, plus unlimited ...

For sushi, head to the Tsukiji fish market and just find a place. The small shops there are typically all excellent and the fish is about as fresh as you can get. To get there, take the subway to Higashi-Ginza Station and its a couple minutes walk. Also, something worth noting, my personal favorite thing about Haneda Airport is that after a long cross-...

I did this in July - I had 10 pm day 1 to 6 am day 3 (so about 32 hours) in Haneda, and wanted to get out. I'll describe what I found and hopefully it'll benefit. I arrived at 10 pm, went through customs relatively painlessly, although I did get pulled aside briefly when I declared some medicines. They asked how long I was going to be in the country, I ...

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.

The showers are available on the Arrival Lobby on the Second Floor. Available 24 hours Fees ¥1,030/30min.(with drink coupon) ¥520 for each 15min. thereafter * As of April 1, 2014. Towels, shampoo, conditioner, body soap and dryer provided. http://www.haneda-airport.jp/inter/en/map/floormap/map.html?floorId=MAP002&serviceId=30 WiFi is available in ...

Not necessarily what you are looking for, but you could book an extra night at the hotel prior to the night when you do have a booking and tell them that you have a really late checkin at 7AM and don't give your room away. This has the advantage that you can go directly to your main hotel and crash there rather than dealing with going to/from a second hotel....

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." ...

According to Wikipedia, the Keikyū Airport Line is the 6.5km stretch from Haneda to Keikyū Kamada, at which the line changes name and becomes Keikyū Main Line. Since the Airport Line offers Airport Express service from Haneda to your destination, you shouldn't have to change train at Kamada. Moreover this is reflected in the screenshot you posted which all ...

That's an interesting challenge, and there's no obviously superior solution, but here's two options for what I would probably do in your shoes: If you get through immigration fast and the train schedule lines up, take the JR Narita Express to Shibuya. The train takes about 75 min and runs hourly. At Shibuya station, take the Hachiko Exit and you'll end up ...

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.

It's possible, but you're not going to have a lot of time if you only have 6 hours to do it in, and I would not attempt this if you have a lot of bags to drag around. Narita to Shibuya is about 80 minutes by Narita Express, although beware that not all N'EX trains stop at Shibuya, meaning you may have a wait of up to 30 minutes. There are other options (...

Yes, you can enter without a ticket. I entered that airport many times and was never asked for a ticket before heading to my flight. I could have been lucky every single time, but then please consider that the airport's building hosts conference rooms and a wedding hall. It is obvious that at least some of the attendees will not hold a ticket. Haneda is ...

I don't believe this is possible. While Yamato Kuroneko (and some other companies) will gladly ship your bags from/to Haneda/Narita, the maximum storage period is only one week. In general, you will have trouble finding a service that can keep your bags that long. Regular luggage storage at Haneda is for no longer than two weeks, but if you're willing to ...

Yes, you will need a visa, as you'll be entering the country. The Philippines are not among the visa exempt countries for visiting Japan, and the Japan embassy in the Philippines has a list of all relevant documents / info that you may need. Narita and Haneda are almost 50 miles apart, so you definitely have to exit the airport to get to the other. We have ...

In the end, turns out I was misreading their website: First Cabin is open to hourly stays 24/7, the only catch being that they close the showers for a few hours from 10 AM. I tried them out this morning (I'm actually typing this inside the capsule!): the morning package is a minimum of 3 hours for ¥3000 in a "First Class Cabin", with additional hours &...

Not sure what exactly the person you were talking to was trying to convey, but even if there were higher taxes in that situation, you have to take the whole trip in consideration and compare for yourself. Taking 3 random dates (July 5, 12 and 17 respectively for each of the 3 legs), I see the following possible return flights (with IST-ICN and ICN-KIX non-...

If you are planning to go out of the airport then you need a visa. For a 3 hour layover, I suggest that you stay at the airport because sometimes flights are delayed and your 3 hours layover may become 2 hours. In the same time you need atleast 1 hour in an average to find your connecting flight gate and prepare to board the plane.

You do not need to book beforehand. Tickets are sold at counter near the exit gate. You can also go by train as a fallback. Train is cheaper, and takes slightly longer. http://www.haneda-airport.jp/inter/en/access/traffic.html

Per TIMATIC, the database used by airlines: TWOV (Transit Without Visa): Passengers transiting through Tokyo (HND) or Osaka (KIX) with a confirmed onward ticket for a flight to a third country within 72 hours. They must stay in the international transit area of the airport and have documents required for the next destination. and ...
