How Do I Get to Haneda Airport?

Monorails are really helpful in Japan

The Tokyo Monorail is one of the most convenient ways to get to and from Tokyo and Haneda Airport. From the International Terminal, the non-stop Haneda Express only takes 13 minutes to get to Hamamatsu-cho station where you can transfer to the Yamanote line. On top of its convenience, the monorail runs by the ocean for most of its way, making the views very scenic. It only costs 470 yen from the International Terminal to Hamamatsu-cho. The Tokyo Monorail is highly recommended!
