Haneda Airport - also known as Tokyo International Airport - is one of 2 airports serving the Great-er Tokyo Area in Japan (the other being Narita Airport). Located much closer to Tokyo city than Narita Airport, it is often the airport of choice for domestic flights (as international flights are more likely directed to Narita) and was, in 2013, the second busiest airport in Asia and fourth busiest in the world (with more than 68 million passengers passing through). It was also considered the most punctual airport in the world by Forbes for 2 years running.
Haneda Airport boasts 3 terminals in total: 2 are used for domestic flights, and the last for interna-tional ones. Terminal 1 is served mainly by Japan Airlines, whilst Terminal 2 handles All Nippon Airways (ANA)’s flights. Terminal 3 - called the International Terminal - was constructed only in 2010 and includes an airport hotel (the Royal Park Hotel The Haneda) within its terminal, making it extremely convenient for international visitors staying there as they don’t have to pass through im-migration.
Terminals 1 and 2 are linked by an underground walkway, and can also be accessed via free shuttle buses that run between all 3 terminals.
Facilities available at Haneda Airport are quite extensive; these include ATMs, baggage storage fa-cilities, car rental agencies, ticket counters (where you can buy anything from train tickets to bus tickets to Disneyland tickets), pay-in airport lounges and more. Other interesting features include airport clinics, airport barbers, airport massage salons, dental clinics and more.
For those with a long layover at the airport, the Haneda Excel Hotel Tokyu is available just around the corner at Terminal 2 for a good night’s rest. If you’re looking for a quick power nap, though, capsule hotel First Cabin Tokyo Haneda can provide you with a comfortable bunk on which to grab a few hours of shut-eye.
