Airport Information

Haneda Airport
Haneda Airport —officially known as Tokyo International Airport—handles a large number of international flights from all over the globe. Pick up your baggage and be in the heart of Tokyo within 30 minutes.

By train: Express trains from the International Terminal via the Keikyu Line run to Shinagawa Station on the JR Yamanote Line–the loop train that circles the city–allowing you easy access to the rest of Tokyo. You can also take the monorail to Hamamatsucho, another Yamanote Line station closer to Tokyo Station.

By bus: Tokyo access buses travel to all areas of the city including the major hotel districts and tourist destinations. While travel time might be longer than the train—especially in bad weather or traffic–it can be an easier option. Visit the desk located at Arrivals to purchase a ticket from the bilingual staff.

By taxi: The airport’s central location means that a taxi ride into the city won’t break the bank—especially if you are traveling in a small group. The taxi rank is clearly signposted in the Arrivals area. A fixed rate fare taxi service is available from the airport. The rates are calculated based on the zone your destination is located in, allowing for a stress-free ride into the city.

Narita Airport
Narita Airport is located much further outside Tokyo than Haneda, but great transportation links means easy access into the city. Depending on your choice of transportation, it is possible to be in the city in around an hour.

By train: The JR operated Narita Express is your quickest way into Tokyo, connecting directly to the major areas of Tokyo Station, Shinagawa, Shibuya, Shinjuku and Ikebukuro. Your Japan Rail Pass can be used on this service, however, seat reservations are required. The private railway company Keisei also runs the Skyliner express service from the airport to the Yamanote Line stations of Nippori and Ueno on the east side of Tokyo. All seats must be reserved. If you have a limited budget and no time constraints, take the leisurely local trains into Tokyo.
By bus: Express buses to major stations, hotel districts and sightseeing areas leave from the airport at regular intervals. If you are traveling to one of the major hotels with lots of baggage, buses are a good option.
By taxi: Taxis from Narita Airport are a convenient, if pricey, option for traveling into Tokyo. If you decide to take a cab, make sure to request a fixed fare as this is a relatively cost-effective and stress-free travel option.

Social Events:
A mini-tour is planned on 17 October, 2018, from 16:00 to 19:00. The Welcome Party will be held on the same day, 19:00–20:30 at Ginza, Tokyo.
