Tokyo Guide

Airport Information Between Sydney Airport (SYD) and Tokyo Airport (TYO)

Departing Sydney Airport:

Sydney Airport (SYD) is Australia’s busiest and largest airport, home to three terminals, international and domestic, as well as a range of amenities such as restaurants, shops, ATMs, free WiFi and VIP lounges.
Conveniently, the airport is located just 8km from the CBD, and you’re able to get there via train on the T8 airport line. For flights to Tokyo from Sydney, you’ll depart from Terminal 1. This terminal is located in the Northwest sector of the airport.

Arriving at Tokyo Airport:

Tokyo is home to two international airports, Narita Airport and Haneda Airport. Narita Airport is located 60 km east of Tokyo’s city centre and handles about half of all international flights entering and leaving the country. Haneda Airport is much closer to central Tokyo, making it a great option for getting into the city in the shortest amount of time. Haneda Airport handles mostly domestic flights throughout Japan, but some international flights land here as well. Whichever airport you book your Perth to Tokyo flights into, you’ll have no trouble getting into the city and to your hotel.

Getting to Central Tokyo from Narita Airport (NRT)

Tokyo is efficient when it comes to public transport, and there are several options to get you from Narita Airport into central Tokyo.

JR Narita Express
The Narita Express is a fast and comfortable option to get from Narita Airport into Tokyo in about an hour. The train has plenty of luggage space and comfortable airplane-style seats. The train stops at many major stations around central Tokyo, including Tokyo Station, Shibuya Station, Shinjuku Station, and Ikebukuro Station. Tickets into Tokyo Station cost ¥3,020 (about $36.75) for standard class and ¥4,560 for first class. Tickets to other central Tokyo stations cost ¥3,190 for standard class and ¥4,730 for first class. Trains depart Narita Airport every half hour into Tokyo.

JR Narita Line Rapid Train
This train also gets you to Tokyo Station, but takes a little longer than the Narita Express. The journey is an hour and a half, however tickets won’t cut into your travel budget as much. Tickets to Tokyo Station are ¥1,320. The Narita Line Rapid Train departs Narita Airport once every hour.

Keisei Electric Railway Skyliner
If you’re staying in the eastern neighbourhoods of Tokyo, the Keisei Electric Railway Skyliner is your best option. The train makes stops at both Nippori and Ueno stations in eastern Tokyo. This is one of the fastest trains in Tokyo and almost reaches the speed of Japan’s famous bullet trains. The train journey only takes between 40-45 minutes, and tickets cost ¥2,470.

Taxi
With the airport located quite a distance from the city centre, a taxi from Narita Airport to central Tokyo will definitely cut into your spending money. In perfect conditions, the journey from Narita Airport to central Tokyo takes about an hour. However, as one of the largest cities in the world, Tokyo often has heavy traffic. If you do decide to go with a taxi, visit taxi stands 15, 29, 30, or 31A for taxis offering fixed rates into Tokyo. Fixed rates are based on which zone of the city you are travelling to. Much of central Tokyo falls into Zones C and D. A taxi to Zone C costs ¥20,000, and a taxi to Zone D costs ¥22,000.

Getting to Central Tokyo from Haneda Airport (HND)

Haneda Airport is only located 14 km from Tokyo Station, so there are several affordable options to get you into the Japanese capital quickly.

The Keikyu Line
Once you arrive to Haneda Airport, follow the signs to the Keikyu Line train. From there, catch a train going to Shinagawa Station, which is only 15 minutes away. From there, you will need to transfer to the JR Yamanote Line, which will take you to the central areas of Tokyo in 10-20 minutes. Stops include Tokyo Station, Shinjuku Station, and Shibuya Station. Trains to these stations cost between ¥580 and ¥610.

Tokyo Monorail
The Tokyo Monorail will get you into the city centre in a similar amount of time as the Keikyu Line, but offers nice city views during your ride as well. Take the 15 minute journey on the monorail to Hamamatsucho Station where you can transfer to the JR Yamanote Line. The ride from there is only 6 minutes to Tokyo Station and 25 minutes to Shinjuku Station. Tickets are between ¥650 and ¥690 from Haneda Airport to the stations around central Tokyo. However, if you book your ticket in advance you can pay just ¥500.

Taxi
With Haneda Airport located so close to the city centre, a taxi is a practical option to get you into Tokyo. The journey into the centre is just about a half hour without traffic. Taxis travelling from Haneda Airport into Tokyo offer fixed rates to 19 different areas of the city. A taxi to Shinjuku costs ¥7,100, a taxi to Shibuya costs ¥6,600, and a taxi to Chiyoda (where Tokyo Station is located) costs ¥5,900. If you are taking a taxi from the airport between 10PM-5AM, your taxi may add a surcharge of about ¥1,200 on top of the standard fare.
