How to Easily Transfer from Narita Airport to Haneda Airport in 2022

It is not uncommon for people to have to transfer directly from Narita Airport NRT to Haneda Airport HND or do the reverse from Haneda Airport HND to Narita Airport NRT to catch transferring flights.

When booking their flights people may be unaware that the two airports are located quite a distance apart, with Narita Airport being located 70km to the east of Tokyo Station and Haneda Airport being located 19km to the south of Tokyo Station.

As a result I have put together a detailed range of options to help you most efficiently travel between the two airports, and to identify the option which best meets your budget and connection timeframe.

Tokyo Airport Transfer Articles

I have also developed a set of articles to help you work out the best way to transfer between Narita Airport and the following major areas in Tokyo.  Click on the article below to see the options which will best suit your situation (note that some articles are located on Japan Travel Planning and some articles are on Pretraveller).

5 Options to Most Easily Transfer from Narita to Haneda

To help you work out the best option to suit your personal situation I have put together the five options to most easily and most cost effectively transfer from Narita to Haneda, or in reverse from Haneda to Narita Airport.  They are sequenced with the easiest and most cost effective options first.

There are other public transportation options you can utilise to travel between Narita and Haneda Airports, however each of them require more than one transfer so they do not meet my criteria for the ‘easiest’ option.

Note that this due to border restrictions that you cannot currently transfer between Narita and Haneda Airports – so if you have flights which require you to make this transfer, you need to contact your airline and ask them to assist with resolving this issue. (this information is correct as at 16 July 2022)

Below is a comparison table for the five options – click on the links to quickly make your booking, or read further below for more information about each option.

Note that pricing was accurate as at May 2022, however is subject to fluctuate due to changes in pricing and exchange rates.  This article will be periodically updated to reflect the latest prices.

  1. You might mention that using a Rail Pass to get from Narita to Haneda or Tokyo means they activate it and the clock on their pass starts ticking. For budget travelers who may be starting their trips with a few days in Tokyo it might make more sense to pay cash for the train and therefore extend the time they can use the pass.

  2. I have about 10 hrs for transfer from Haneda to Narita airport. And I am thinking of taking Limo bus. But I am wondering if they will let me in with all my luggage! My travel agent said that I have to take my luggage at Haneda and check back at Narita.

    • Fakhera, the Limousine Bus will be able to take your luggage as you transfer between the airports with no problem. The Limousine Bus will be much easier than having to catch the train and change stations while carrying everything.

  5. Hello Anne.
    Our domestic flight is expected to arrive at Haneda airport at night (21:15). I was thinking of transferring to a hotel near Narita airport the same night (our international flight out of Narita is 11:00 on the following day).
    How best can we, a family of three, transfer from Haneda to Narita during late hours?
    With a quick look, some transport means appear not available after 20:30 or so.

    • Hi Hiroko, unfortunately you are currently unable to leave the airport if you do not have a visa, and tourists are only allowed to enter Japan if they are part of an organised group tour. As a result you will not be able to leave the airport. Also, this means that you cannot transfer to Haneda Airport either. I suggest you reach out to your airline to raise the issue and get their assistance to resolve.

  6. Hi–I’m flying from Seattle to Osaka. The cheapest flight home goes from Osaka Itami (ITM) to Haneda, with a 5 hour layover, and then from Narita to Seattle. I see that it is about 2 hours on public transit from HND to NRT. Do you think a 5 hour layover is sufficient time, given that I will need to exit the airport, figure out how to catch the train, take the train, figure out where to go at NRT, etc.

    Thank you!!

    • Hi Aaron, I think you would be better off catching the shinkansen train from Shin-Osaka Station to Tokyo Station and then the Narita Express to Narita Airport. That way there is lower risk of flight cancellations, and in total the trip will actually be faster if you allow for the extra time you need to arrive at the airport.
