Tokyo City Air Terminal , also known as T-CAT, is a bus terminal for Airport Transport Service, an airport bus operator, in downtown Tokyo, Japan. The terminal is located in Nihonbashi-Hakozaki-cho, Chuo-ku, beneath Hakozaki Junction, the three-way interchange for Shuto Expressway Route 6 (Mukojima Route) and Route 9 (Fukagawa Route), three blocks southeast of Suitengu shrine. T-CAT is a gateway for passengers going to and from Narita International Airport and Tokyo International Airport (Haneda).The major stockholders in T-CAT's operating company include Japan Airport Terminal Co., Ltd., Keikyu Corporation, Mitsubishi Estate Co., Ltd., Airport Transport Service Co., Ltd., Keisei Electric Railway Co., Ltd., and Airport Facilities Co., Ltd.HistoryT-CAT opened around the same time as New Tokyo International Airport in 1978. Since Narita Airport is located 66 km from the city, the terminal was intended to increase the convenience of the airport with offering airline check-in facilities until September 2001. T-CAT also at one point had exit immigration pre-clearance desks, so that passengers could complete exit formalities at T-CAT and then use a special lane to bypass exit immigration at Narita Airport.

  • Tokyo-City Air Terminal is located in the heart of the Chūō district, almost halfway between the station of Tokyo (2.5 km) and the Tokyo-Skytree (to 4 km). Get to the T-CAT taxi is quite easy since it's a station well known for local taxi drivers. In addition just will take you 10 minutes ride from Ginza, Tsukiji or Akihabara Station. On the other hand, if you're going to stay in the District of Shibuya or surrounding area, it is better to take the subway since the purple color, the Hanzomon Line, line connects directly (no transfers) Shibuya (Z01 stop) with the (stop Z10) Suitengumae station which has direct access to the Tokyo City Air Terminal.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
