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.

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.

get on the Yurikamone line for the monorail that will take you to bayside Tokyo. Buy a day pass which will permit you to get of at all the stops like Venus Fort, a huge outlet store built like an Italian village complete with fountains, balconies and an artificial blue sky. There is also a vintage car museum in the same complex that is worhtwile visiting.
Next to the mall there's the Toyota Centre where the car manufacturer has built a modern showroom. All the new models can be tested here, and there's lot of experimental displays.

Then we went to the MeSci museum -the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation- which is a true wonder of visual marvels, chock-full of high tech displays. Here you can view all the latest in robot technology, space, environment, the latest technology for medicins etc. as well as checking out the weather around the world by looking up at a giant sphere covered with numerous light-emitting diodes and showing the world as it appears from space. You can also visit the inside of a space station with lots of videos in English. There is also a great view from the restaurant on the top floor.
Very impressive and great fun to take the kids.

The monorail takes you around Tokyo's latest architural wonders and structures that has to be seen to be believed. On a clear sunny day this trip with the monorail is an absolute must and at a few stops there is also the possibility to take the ferry . Crossing Tokyo Bay and entering the city with a boat from a different angle is wonderful and a great experience.

From Daiba station there is a connection to the ferry that will take you back to the mainland for Hinode station.

The best way to get to Haneda airport. Use your Suica or Pasmo card. The entry at Hamamatsucho Station is a bit confusing, it could do with better signage. There is one small elevator that is always full with able bodied people without luggage so it makes it a bit of a chore to get upstairs to the entry.

I visited tokyo, in july.
Before i always used to
Travel with cab from
Haneda to tokyo central and cost around 7000 yen
This time i tried monorail , which indeed is v convenient and cheaper.

From hammamatsucho ,either can travel via japan main railway lines or take taxi to tokyo station which cost 2000 yen.

Early 9 am Flight from Haneda International Airport. Choices are a taxi ( expensive ), Bus (More money and very in covenant ) or the Train/Monorail. Our early flight meant taking the bus at 3 am, their only option until 10 am. As a first time traveler in Tokyo we wondered how the train/monorail would work, it was a piece of cake. We used google to fine a time that would get us to the airport with enough time to make our flight. We left Tokyo station on Keihintohoku Line to Hamamatsuchō Station, walked to the monorail gate, picked up a new monorail ticket after we were pointed to the machine next to the turnstile, Upstairs we boarded the monorail and after 4 stops we arrived right in the airport terminal. 34 minutes door to door. It was a piece of cake when all was said and done. We would use the monorail again when we go back to Tokyo.

A quick and cheap option to get into Tokyo central - Takes you to Hamamatsucho from where you can connect to anywhere in the city. Costs just 480Y - a fraction of coach or taxi costs.

This a very fast train. It takes about 15 minutes to reach Hammamasutcho metro station. There are elevators that make easy your transfer to a taxi or a metro to your final destination.

Convenient Transport from Haneda Airport to Tokyo Station. Also appears to be the lowest cost option. Taxis are expensive. There's also a bus service but the airport customer service suggested the Tokyo Monorail. Think it was like US $4 one way. You need to change trains but still convenient. Trains are comfortable and clean. Took about 35 minutes from Haneda to Tokyo station. Had a backpack and one roller luggage with me.

Used it and loved it. I was staying near Shimbashi station and it took me about 10 minutes to walk to the Hamamatsucho monorail station.Jumped on the first train which turned out to be slow commuter's train; still it took me only 21 minutes to get to Haneda! Fast train makes it 15 minutes. Will use again for sure.
