Tokyo Narita or Haneda?

Jump to last reply

If you guys had the choice of flying into either Tokyo Narita or Tokyo Haneda, which would you choose?

ANA has just recently announced nonstop service from LAX to Haneda and both options are available and on the table for our trip (we'll be flying in biz class...same type of plane on both routes, so the flights themselves should be indistinguishable.)

Narita is significantly further outside of the city than Haneda, right? So the convenience factor definitely weighs in there, I would guess.

The flight times also play a big part:

Haneda = 1:30 AM departure from LAX/overnight flight = less jetlag + morning arrival (more time on the ground our first day there)

Narita = 12:30 PM departure from LAX/day flight = more jetlag + early evening arrival (less time on the ground our first day)

Only downside I can think of is that I'm just *dying* to try out that ANA Lounge at Narita with the infamous noodle and sake bars that I've read so much about. :)

Thoughts?
