One concern our visitors to Japan have is the high cost of transportation! In today's article, we'd like to help alleviate this problem by introducing five discount tickets that offer savings on trains and subways when going from Haneda Airport to Tokyo.

2. Tokyo Travel Pass (1 Day/2 Day): Good For Next Day Sightseeing As Well

This pass includes a one-way ticket for the Keikyu Line going from Haneda Airport's Domestic Terminal Station and International Terminal Station to Shinagawa Station, and also a ticket for unlimited rides on all of the Toei Subway Lines. There's a one-day and two-day pass available.

For those thinking of doing two days of Tokyo sightseeing from the time of arrival, we recommend the two-day pass.

One of the added benefits of this pass is CHIKA TOKA, a service in which discount coupons are available at various places along the train and subway routes.

To enjoy these benefits all you have to do is show your ticket (while still in use) at the facility you're visiting. To find out which places offer these discounts and special prices, please refer to CHIKA TOKU's official homepage

Some of the places situated along the Toei Subway Lines include: Tsukiji, often called the world's number one fish market; Shimbashi, a transportation hub for Japanese business people; and Tokyo Tower, the city's symbol. You can also go to Asakusa, Ueno, and Tokyo SKYTREE.

You can also receive admission discounts at Hama-Rikyu Gardens and Kyu-Shiba-Rikyu Gardens, so by all means have a look at CHIKA TOKU before you start your sightseeing.

Now we'll introduce a possible sightseeing plan using a one-day pass.

For those planning on sightseeing in the Tsuji area, we also highly recommend the Park Hotel Tokyo, where you can spend the night in an art gallery-like environment (see photo above).

To get to the Park Hotel Tokyo, first board the Keikyu Line at Haneda Airport's International Terminal Station and go as far as Daimon Station. At Daimon Station, transfer to the Toei Oedo Subway Line and get off at Shiodome Station (530 yen).

If you take the subway from Shiodome Station to Tsukiji Shijo Station (180 yen), you'll be able to sample some fresh, delicious sushi. Hama-Rikyu Gardens which offers a discounted admission price, is also within walking distance, so by all means go for a visit.

Also, just two stations from Tsukiji Shijo Station is Tsukishima Station (180 yen), famous for its street featuring many monjayaki shops.
How about stopping in at one of these shops for dinner, or even just a tasty snack?

If you go from Tsukishima Station to Daimon Station and transfer to the Toei Asakusa Subway Line, this will take you as far as Higashi Ginza Station (220 yen).

Just a stone's throw away from here is the famous Kabukiza Theater, where you can take in a live performance of kabuki, one of Japan's traditional arts.

To return to your hotel at the end of the day, take the subway from Higashi Ginza Station back to Shiodome Station (180 yen).

If you do this sightseeing plan using regular tickets, the total transportation fare comes to 1290 yen. But if you use the one-day pass, it'll be only 800 yen, a savings of 490 yen!

The Tokyo Travel pass will take you to Tokyo SKYTREE in the east, and in the direction of Shinjuku in the west.

For those planning on doing sightseeing the following day as well, purchasing a Tokyo Travel two-day pass will also offer you some savings. However, please note that with this pass you won't be able to ride trains on the Tokyo Metro Subway system.
