It’s easy to Travel Super in Japan’s striking capital Tokyo, a truly remarkable destination…
Your senses will buzz like never before when you touch down on Tokyo flights. Feel the rush of the high-speed train from the airport; take a lungful of incense-filled air at Sensoji Temple; have your mind blown by the street fashions of Harajuku; taste fresh-from-the-pan noodles; and mind your toes on the famous Shibuya Crossing, also known as The Scramble.
This wild and wonderful city boasts the whole spice rack of flavours on offer in Japan. So whether it’s your first bite or your second, third, fourth, fifth… hey, who’s counting?
Direct London to Tokyo flights are great value, while indirect flights from other UK airports can also be booked at low prices. It’s worth checking the cost of non-stop flights to Tokyo compared to indirect flights (via, for example, continental Europe or China) as flying indirect can net you significant savings – that’s if you don’t mind changing planes and the extra travel time.
The flight time from London to Tokyo direct is around 12 hours.

The Japanese mega city of Tokyo enjoys great connections from the UK, so there’s no excuse to miss out...
From London Heathrow, you can fly non-stop to two airports in Tokyo. Daily departures with British Airways, JAL, Virgin Atlantic and ANA go to Tokyo’s Narita airport (NRT). BA also offers a daily service to Tokyo Haneda (HND). Flying time is around 12 hours non-stop.
Lufthansa has flights via Munich and Frankfurt, Air France via Paris and KLM via Amsterdam, while SAS and Finnair travel through Copenhagen and Helsinki. Departures for these services can be from UK airports such as Manchester, Edinburgh, Bristol, Birmingham and Newcastle, as well as London.

Flights to Tokyo land at either Tokyo Narita International Airport or Tokyo Haneda Airport.
Narita is served by the high-speed Keisei Skyliner train, which will have you in central Tokyo in a little over 40 minutes for around 2,500 yen (£13.50) per person. A few minutes slower but a few pounds cheaper, the Narita Express train is another good option. A taxi fare between the airport and central Tokyo can cost 20,000 yen (a little over £100).
Haneda Airport is much closer to the city than Narita Airport. From Haneda, hop on the Tokyo Monorail or use the Keikyu Line on the underground system and you’ll reach Hamamatsucho Station (monorail) or Keikyu Shinagawa Station (underground) in central Tokyo in just 14 minutes; tickets cost around 500 yen (£2.70). A fixed-rate taxi fare between Haneda and central locations is around 7,000 yen (£38), plus extra for tolls.
Pre-book car hire in Tokyo and collect your vehicle upon arrival at the airport, saving on the cost of transfers. Tokyo is well served by public transport and car parking can be costly. But for travel elsewhere and at your own pace, cheap car hire is a worthwhile investment.
