Staying at Tokyo airport hotels is strongly recommended if your flight arrives late at night, departs early in the morning, or you intend to arrive a day early for your Japan and More small group tour.
Why Stay at Tokyo Airport Hotels?
Early Tour Arrivals
If you want to arrive a day early for your Japan and More tour, the best thing to do is to stay at an airport hotel. After a long flight, it’s easy to get to your hotel for some much-needed sleep, and we’ll meet you at the airport the following day to take you into the city.
Arriving late in the evening and then trying to get into the city can be more challenging than you think.
Instead, we recommend that you check into one of the nearby airport hotels, and get a good night’s rest. The flight from the United States to Japan is long, and once you arrive in Japan, you’ll want a cozy, comfortable bed to ward off the inevitable jet lag.
Similarly, if you have an early flight, the last thing you want is to have to worry about getting to your flight on time. By staying close to the airport, you can get those cherished extra minutes of rest, and start your journey feeling relaxed and refreshed.
Ease of Transportation
One of the most important factors to consider when choosing your Tokyo airport hotel is the ease of transfer. All the hotels we recommend below either operate regular shuttle buses or are connected to the airport, which means you don’t need to worry about arranging transportation.
