The area
Neighborhood: Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi
Odaiba is an entertainment hotspot with a giant ferris wheel, concert halls, amusement arcades and lots of shopping. It also boasts Oedo-onsen-monogatari, a hotspring that recreates old Edo-era ambiance and is very popular with foreign visitors. Shiodome has ultra-modern office buildings where you can often find restaurants with a great high-rise view of Tokyo. The neighboring area of Shinbashi is a district of much older commercial buildings and it's a great place to join 'salary men' enjoying a drink and snacks at street stalls under the railway bridges after work.

My hotel (Inter Continental Tokyo Bay) is just right next to Takeshiba Station, it's a very cool way to travel in Tokyo, even though the Japan Pass is not accepted by the Monorail system. Its highly recommended to sit at the front of the train as you can see 360 degree of Tokyo.

We were staying at the Grand Nikko and there was a station just outside. It was easy to go the seven stops into Shinbashi one evening using the monorail as the ticketing system is very easy to navigate and ticket prices very reasonable. It runs very efficiently, of course it does, and is very frequent. Well worth giving it a go.

The monorial complement the tokyo metro trains. We could use our JR pass on it and used it to visit Odaiba and Haneda airport. Slow ride but quite enjoyable especially when approaching Odaiba.

This is a great way yo commute from Odaiba to downtown in a fast, convenient and cheap way. There are several stops in Odaiba and you can cross the bay via the Rainbow Bridge.

Don’t miss trying this at least once. It’s a Disney ride because it’s actually functional (transport from place to place) but definitely has a small sense of adventure because you get to see lot’s of Tokyo above the water on the bridge and it’s an automated ride not controlled by a driver (or it could be controlled remotely). We really liked it.

The monorail passed our hotel so we developed a desire to travel on it. On the last day of our holiday in Tokyo we got off the normal subway train and transferred at Hamamatsucho. The monorail runs all the way to Haneda Airport but we just went to the first stop and came back. Enjoyed the tilting around corners! Free if you come back without getting off.

My husband and I took the Monorail from the Haneda airport when we first arrived in Japan, and back to the International Terminal at the airport when we left.
Even though it is a type of private transportation, you are able to use your JR pass on it. Our passes were not active for the trip, so we used our Pasmo cards. You can also use Suica on the Monorail.
The Monorail goes very quickly, especially if you take the Express train. You can see the edge of the harbor from the windows as you go, and all of the work they are doing along the harbor. It is a nice scenic view and the quickest way to get to downtown Tokyo from the Haneda airport. You can not take the Monorail all the way to Shinjuku or Shibuya, it only goes to the Hamamatsucho Station. Once you get here you can transfer to the Yamanote Line or any other subway line to get to tour destination. And visa versa on the way back to the airport.
