Tokyo Haneda International Airport
Tokyo International Airport is also known as Haneda Airport and is one of the two international airports of the Japanese capital (the other one is Narita Airport). Until recently mainly domestic flights were carried out from this airport, but since the opening of a new terminal in 2010 the number of international flights has increased drastically.

Car and bus
The airport is situated 15 kilometers south of Tokyo's center. Kawasaki and Yokohama are located southwest of the airport.
