Haneda is the airport closest to central Tokyo, conveniently accessible from Tokyo Station in approximately 30 minutes. A flight into Haneda can offer spectacular views of the city's best sights, as your flight path may take you above Tokyo.
For much of its recent history, Haneda Airport was used mainly for domestic flights within Japan, but that changed with the opening of the airport's new international terminal (now known as Terminal 3) in 2010. Haneda offers unbeatable accessibility to central Tokyo.
For those of you curious about exploring greater Japan, Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 are used predominantly for domestic flights, with services mainly operated by ANA and JAL, two of Japan's largest airlines.
Like all airport and transit hubs in Japan, Haneda Airport has an incredible selection of Japanese souvenirs that make great last-minute gifts. Don't forget to pick something up, especially if you are visiting friends or colleagues in Japan. Terminal 3 also has Edo Ko-Ji, home to 21 old-Tokyo-themed restaurants serving Japanese classics such as yakitori (grilled chicken skewers) and oden (fish-cake stew).
Terminal 3 is open 24 hours, but the business hours of each shop vary. Please also be aware that airport security checkpoints tend to be crowded on the weekends, and arrive at the airport early.
For updated information on opening hours, closings, prices, and more, please check the official website or ask the facility directly.
