----- Must Know things when First Arriving in Tokyo Japan -----

0:51 - #1 Difference Between Narita & Haneda Airport

Travelers flying into Tokyo for the first time, have an option to fly into Narita or Haneda Airport.

Narita is the larger of the 2 airports and is generally known to have more international flights while Haneda has more domestic flights. Both have lots of dining and shopping areas, but since Haneda is newly ren, I have to give Haneda the overall edge when it comes to attractions.

The biggest differentiator between both airports is the distance to Tokyo. Narita is about 1 hr away by express train, while Haneda is about 15-30 min train ride away. So it’s a little cheaper transportation-wise from Haneda.
