Flying to Tokyo

Originally a small fishing village, Tokyo was fortified in the late 1100s and continued to grow and by the eighteenth century was a military and cultural centre of Japan.

Tokyo is a diverse metropolis that contains several national parks, a series of islands, a business centre that is one of the three financial centres of the world, and nearly 13 million inhabitants.

Tokyo International Airport (airport code HND), also known as Haneda Airport, is one of the principal airports servicing the greater Tokyo region. Haneda handles most of the domestic flights transporting nearly 63 million passengers in 2009, making it the fifth busiest airport in the world. Haneda is the hub for Air Do, ANA All Nippon Airways, Japan Airlines, Skymark Airlines, and Skynet Asia Airways.

The other principle airport is Narita International Airport (airport code NRT) which services about 35 million passengers per year and more than 60 airlines. Narita is the hub for Japan Airlines, Delta Airlines, and ANA All Nippon Airways with Japan Airlines and ANA All Nippon Airways operating the most flights.

Shinjuku draws the most tourists. It is the skyscraper district of Tokyo which has the world's busiest train station (Shinjuku Station), a population density of 7,140 persons per km², and trendy shopping and nightlife.

The recently renovated Kabukiza Theater showcases traditional Japanese Kabuki performances which showcase traditional dress and music. Headsets for translation are provided.
