How to Get from Haneda International Airport to Shinkansen Stations?

Welcome to Tokyo's gateway, Haneda Airport!

If you're planning to hop right onto a Shinkansen (bullet train) from here, we've got you covered. Tokyo boasts two major Shinkansen stations, and which one you choose depends on your destination.

Heading West (Nagoya, Kyoto, Osaka, Hiroshima, Hakata, etc.)? Consider Shinagawa Station (Tokaido Shinkansen).

  1. From Haneda Airport (Terminal 1-2 Station, or Terminal 3 Station), board the Keikyu Line toward Shinagawa Station.
    The journey takes approximately 15 minutes.
    There are trains that go directly to Shinagawa Station, and some require a transfer at Kamata Station (but on the same platform)
  2. Upon arriving at Shinagawa Station, you'll find yourself on the Keikyu Line area, so you'll need to make your way to the Konan Exit, where the Shinkansen platforms are located. It's a few-minutes walk.

Heading Anywhere Else in Japan (North of Tokyo)? Tokyo Station is Your Stop.

  1. From Haneda Airport, take the Tokyo Monorail to Hamamatsucho Station. This leg of the journey lasts around 18-25 minutes, depending on whether you catch a rapid or local train.
  2. Transfer to the JR Yamanote Line or JR Keihin-Tohoku Line at Hamamatsucho Station, and you'll be on your way to Tokyo Station. This segment typically takes 5 minutes.
  3. Once you arrive at Tokyo Station, you can easily catch Shinkansen services to various destinations, including the Tohoku Shinkansen, Hokuriku Shinkansen, and more.

Both routes offer access to Shinkansen services in less than 30 minutes.
Keep in mind that actual travel times may vary slightly depending on traffic conditions, but these estimates should give you a good idea.
