Taxi

Taxis are a surefire way to make getting around easy but they can be expensive. Flat-rate taxis ensure that your fare stays fair. It’s simple to book: contact the taxi office and give them your pickup date, time, and location. The taxi will arrive on the designated date and deliver you safely to Haneda Airport with a fee that you agree upon before the driver even leaves.

Rental car

A rental car is a great way to get around Japan but it can be confusing when it comes time to pick up or return your vehicle. Haneda simplifies the process by having pick-up counters within the terminal building or, if parking is crowded, you will be taken to the branch office by shuttle bus.

Expect to find kiosks in the 1F Arrival Lobby area for Times Car Rental, Orix Rent-A-Car, Nissan Rent a Car, Nippon Rent-A-Car and Toyota Rent a Car.

When it comes time to return the car, simply drop it off at the nearest rental car office to the airport (after dropping off any passengers at the airport), and then the rental car company will shuttle the solo driver back to the terminal. 

Travel between terminals:

Move easily between terminals 1, 2, and 3 via the free shuttle bus service, Keikyu Line/ Tokyo Monorail, Underground Passageway (T1-T2), or the transit ramp bus.

From Haneda to Narita Airport

Train

If you want to get from Haneda Airport to Narita Airport as quickly as possible, the one-way trip will take you an hour and 55 minutes. This route is fully covered by the JR pass and involves two transfers. 

Take the Narita Express and then transfer to the Yamanote Line at Tokyo Station followed by the Tokyo Monorail at Hamamatsucho.

Limousine Shuttle Bus

If you’re looking for something a bit more direct and easier thanks to having no transfers, try the limousine shuttle bus. The ride takes 65 to 85 minutes, depending on traffic, and costs 3,200 yen. Buses depart every 20 minutes.
For the best experience, book a seat 72 hours in advance.
