Getting to and from the airport

Flights departing from London

Out of the five main international airports of London, Heathrow Airport is the busiest and largest boasting the largest capacity; it has five terminals and two runways. If you are wondering how you can unwind while you prepare yourself for long haul trips, such as flights to Japan from Heathrow, the airport offers a number of select restaurants and free Wi-Fi. The facilities at the airport are impressive; with it having been established for over 70 years, it is evident that continuous improvement is a mission that is not taken lightly. It has been around long enough to know how to do things right.

Getting to London airport

Depending on your time constraints and the traffic in the city (airport is approximately 22km from the city), it may be advisable to use the Heathrow Express. This direct train comes in 15 minute intervals and is the fastest mode of transport. If you are in a hurry to catch your flight from Heathrow to Tokyo, the train is the most reliable option.

You can also take the National Express coach which you will find at Victoria Coach Station in Central London. It will drop off at Terminals 1-3 at the airport. There are also numerous taxi services that specialise in airport transfers that you can use (including Uber).

Arriving to Tokyo

Tokyo, the capital of Japan, is an explosion of diversity - modern and traditional. Ready to explore? As part of your itinerary, you can book yourself a tour around the city to get a better feel of it. The two most popular types of traditional entertainment are to see sumo wrestling and geishas - your trip would be remiss without checking these out. If you are an adrenaline junkie or you just want to conquer your fear of heights, the Tokyo Sky Tree is for you. Imagine having a view of the city 350m above ground! For you tech junkies, you will feel right at home at the National Museum of Emerging Science.

How to get to the city centre

Flights from London to Tokyo land at Narita Airport or Haneda Airport. Haneda Airport is the closest to the city centre, approximately 14km away. You can connect with the Haneda Express at the terminal stations using the Monorail Line at the airport. You can also use the Airport Limited Express train on the Keikyu Line. Narita Airport, in Narita City, is surprisingly far from Central Tokyo - approximately 60km. Finding affordable transport will be a priority for you given the distance. The Keisei Limited Express is the cheapest mode of transport to use. You can also use the shared mini-bus option because it is the most convenient but also the most inexpensive option.
