Taxi's at Japan

Postby yinfonn » March 28th, 2015 10:27 pm

Hello folks!,


So I am going to Japan in July and I was researching transport methods. Between the airport HND Tokyo to Khaosan Tokyo Origami Hotel the best form of transport from my point of view would be taxi, but according to other forums taxi would be a final resort to be used.

So I am wondering, as I will be arriving to Japan during the late evening, would there still be trains going from the Airport to this hotel because the time we arrive will be roughly 00.25. Also bus services would be a good form of transport, but again, i do not know what time these services start or end.


If somebody can clarify forms of transports and cheapest methods would be very much appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Yin

こんにちは Yinfon さん。

The only train that runs from Haneda Aiport into central Tokyo is the Tokyo Monorail. This runs through all the terminals of the airport (domestic and international) and some other stations before it arrives at Hamammatsucho. The only problem with this is I think the last monorail train departs just after midnight. So if you are arriving at the airport around 00:25 you will definitely not make it. (Plus you would still have to catch a cab from Hamamatsucho Station afterwards as other trains would have stopped by then.)

With buses, it looks like there is one Airport Limousine Bus which you can catch from the international terminal at 01:05am.

The last stop for this bus is the Asakusa View Hotel and arrives at 02:20am. This is the closest I can find to the Khaosan Tokyo Origami. (Probably a 10 min walk). You can see the distance if you can locate both hotels on a map.

From the looks of it, you need purchase the ticket from the 2F (closes at 01:00am, so giving you a minimum of 5 minutes to run from the counter to the bus stop).
Then catch the Airport Limousine Bus from bus stop 2 on the 1F.
The price for 1 adult is ¥1,860 (night bus price, and one way only)

If you are able to purchase the ticket and get to this bus stop before 1:00am you should be okay.

This is the website I looked on to find this information.
http://www.limousinebus.co.jp/en/platform_searches/index/4/244

If you want to search from the beginning to get to the link above go to:
http://www.limousinebus.co.jp/en/
> Then find the box that says 'Pick me up from the airport'
> Select From: Haneda Aiport
> Select To: Asakusa, Kinshichou, Toyocho
> Then finally select Asakusa View Hotel

Probably best to do a bit of further investigation as well, as I've never taken a bus from Haneda Airport to be familiar with the process. So I can't guarantee anything.

A cab from the airport will be pretty expensive especially when public transport is not operating. I would predict it to be approximately between ¥10,000 to ¥11,500 from the airport to Khaosan Tokyo Origami.

I would say hang around at the airport, but facilities pretty much close during the early hours of the morning as well. I think the shower facilities are open 24hrs and maybe the odd few convenience store.

Should you miss your bus, the next bus to Asakusa View Hotel is at 11:40am. Which by then you would be able to catch the monorail (starts running again at 5:17am), and catch trains/subways to Asakusa station.

I hope this help. Good luck too!

Yes, taxi looks like it could cost a lot (maybe Y8,000)

It might be half that from Hamamatsucho Station.

And that is just the normal fare. It would cost more during the early hours of the morning when the trains are not running.

あぁぁぁ。。。 皆さん
ありがとうございます

Hmm, looks like I'll need to do some more research about this. I'm definately up for public transport and taxi's during the night is a given I guess since nothing else will be running during those hours.

Some of the Japanese hotels that I use, there is no late check-in. I looked up your hotel, it looks like check-in closes at nine clock.

I think if you can't negotiate with the hotel to check-in during the early hours of the morning, I recommend hanging out in a manga cafe. I think most of them are open 24 hours.

I found a site that lists some. (I notice a mix up between Asakusa and Akasaka on the addresses. I think those ones are actually Akasaka, since it is in Minato-ku)

Hope that helps.
