3.1/5 based on 85 reviews on the web
Tokyo International Airport, commonly known as Haneda Airport or Tokyo Haneda Airport, is one of the two primary airports that serve the Greater Tokyo Area, and is the primary base of Japan's two major domestic airlines, Japan Airlines (Terminal 1) and All Nippon Airways (Terminal 2), as well as Air Do, Skymark Airlines, Solaseed Air, and StarFlyer. It is located in Ōta, Tokyo, south of Tokyo Station.Haneda was the primary international airport serving Tokyo until 1978; from 1978 to 2010, Haneda handled almost all domestic flights to and from Tokyo as well as "scheduled charter" flights to a small number of major cities in East Asia, while Narita International Airport handled the vast majority of international flights. In 2010, a dedicated international terminal was opened at Haneda in conjunction with the completion of a fourth runway, allowing long-haul flights during night-time hours. Haneda opened up to long-haul service during the daytime in March 2014, with carriers offering nonstop service to 25 cities in 17 countries. The Japanese government is currently encouraging the use of Haneda for premium business routes and the use of Narita for leisure routes and by low-cost carriers.Haneda handled 72,826,862 passengers in 2014; by passenger throughput, it was the third busiest airport in Asia and the fourth busiest in the world, after Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Beijing Capital International Airport (Asia's busiest) and Dubai International Airport. It is able to handle 90 million passengers per year following its expansion in 2010. With Haneda and Narita combined Tokyo has the third busiest city airport system in the world, after London and New York City.

  • In an obscure place, may be hard to find. Opening hours are 08:00-19:00 it is. Where is the first floor arrival lobby of Terminal 1. It is near the post office. May be if you have time, go to a shrine.

  • Cannot find the signboard character of the shrine but feel and look no further. Exploring if you have the chance to use the Terminal 1.

  • After flying from/to Haneda, I didn't use Narita airport anymore. Haneda is modern, full of interesting shops, easy to get yourself around. Great places for relaxing, having a shower and charging your electronics. It's always so convenient getting there, either by bus or monorail. If you are arriving late in the night you can count on a few hotels around. If you want to save your time, I recommend Haneda. Flights from Narita might be a little cheaper, but the place is not even in Tokyo. It's far, far away.
  • Well managed airport. Free fast wifi. AC & USB charger before check in. They call for line up 10 mins before actual boarding. They actual check the seat number and card. The 1st row are First class, gold card, with young child or old person and Internet check in. The 2nd row seat number 50-71.
  • The new food court inside of immigration is good. They have several new food shops including a sushi bar, Ramen, udon, curry, and okonomiyaki shops.
  • Haneda is a small, clean, semi-modern airport. It's nice enough for the convenience of being directly connected to the Tokyo metro. But the flights in and out of here tend to be more expensive, the staff are not always helpful, and due to the constraints of the metro system, it's actually sometimes easier to bus out to Narita airport than to go here.
  • This place is amazing and transit is easy. The airport staff are capable of many languages and and are helpful. My younger friend travels through this airport as well and he is 10 years old- his UM experience is very friendly and he enjoys it. This airport is also closer to the city and helps access. This airport's visitor friendly layout helps to get around easily unlike some other airports, and clear signs help to get to and from places easier. The second floor is in a Japanese theme and is very easy to find last minute gifts, although outside security. This airport is a great one and I will continue to use it from now on!
