Haneda Airport opened in the 1930s and served as Tokyo’s primary international airport until the late 1970s. Narita Airport took over after that, much to travelers’ dismay thanks to the dismal food and shopping options as well as its long distance from Tokyo proper. Thankfully, Haneda again opened for international travel in 2010 and is now one of the busiest airports in the world — and has one of the best airport food scenes.
The best options are pre-security at the Edo Market. In fact, if you’re going to eat at the airport at all, your best choice is to delay going through security and hanging around Edo Market’s many restaurants and shops. There are a couple of other options at some of the other gates, however, as well as an eye-catching place in Pop Town next to Edo Market pre-security.
These are the best places to eat at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport.
Note: The area around gates 105-108, 131-139, and 145-146 have negligible options. We repeat: Stay in Edo Market.
