8 hour layover at Haneda

Jump to last reply

I will be flying to Singapore this September and I will have a 8 hour layover at Haneda airport. I've never been to Japan before and I was wondering if I would have enough time to either take a taxi or a train to see some parts of Tokyo? My plane lands at Haneda at 3PM and my flight to Singapore leaves at 11PM.

If so, how much free time should I plan and what should I see?


Thanks!

    Absolutely plenty of time. You have lots of choices -- here's just one suggestion:

    Head over to the Hamarikyu Garden for an example of Japanese city gardens. Then take the river boat up to Asakusa, explore the Asakusa area and Sensoji shrine, then head back to Haneda. This should take about 4-5 hours, and you'll have plenty of time to get back. Here are the transport details:

    From Haneda, take the Tokyo Monorail to Hamamatsucho station, then walk over to nearby Daimon station and take the Oedo subway line 1 stop to Shiodome. At Shiodome, follow the signs to Hamarikyu Garden. The boat to Asakusa is at the opposite end of the garden from which you'll enter. When the boat stops at Asakusa, follow the signs to Senso-ji. It will take less than 30 minutes to go from Haneda to Hamarikyu garden. The boat ride takes about 30-40 minutes.

    To return to Haneda, go to the Asakusa subway station, and head to the Toei Asakusa subway line. Take the subway to Daimon station, walk over to Hamamatsucho station, then take the monorail back to Haneda. That whole trip should take no more than 45 minutes.
