As you know there two big airport in Tokyo, and you might came from Haneda which have been known as Tokyo International Airport, is located less than 30 minutes south of central Tokyo. It is considerably closer to the city center than Narita Airport. Compared to Narita Airport, Haneda Airport handles way more domestic flights, but fewer international flights. With over 60 million passengers per year overall, Haneda Airport is by far Japan’s busiest airport and ranks among the world’s five busiest airports.
Today, I want to introduce about domestic building of Haneda! Have you ever thought about to spend time whole day in airport? But yes, Haneda can be really possible!
Firstly the domestic flights use the airports of two other terminals. The terminal 1 is mainly used by JAL, while terminal 2 is mainly used by ANA. Free shuttle buses operate frequently between all terminal buildings. The passengers of visitors may also use the monorail or Keikyu Railway too.
