Arrival at Tokyo International Airport
Tokyo International Airport is commonly known as Haneda Airport or Tokyo Haneda Airport. Haneda Airport is in Ota, Tokyo, 14 km south of Tokyo Station, which is the hub of all public transportation in the city. Haneda was the third busiest airport in Asia in 2015. There are three terminals in the airport, and international flights arrive at the smaller international terminal. You will pass through immigration, retrieve your bags, have your bags inspected, and exit into the lobby where you can find transportation to Tokyo.
There are public transport systems like the monorail and buses that will take you into the city. The Haneda Airport International Terminal Station goes directly into the city. The public transport is clean and efficient. You can also reserve a taxi at the information desk, which is recommended as it can be difficult giving the taxi driver directions in Japanese.
