For Beginners of Haneda Airport: International Terminal (You Can Have Fun and buy Japanese Souvenir a lot!!)

Haneda International Terminal is used by passengers from/to overseas. This terminal is smaller than Haneda domestic terminal but a lot of shops and restaurants are inside.

Transfer to the domestic terminals

I recommend the free shuttle bus.

Shops and restaurants are in 4th and 5th floors. Somehow, the inside buildings are designed “typical Japan”.

Many Japanese products and brands are sold.

Let me introduce a unique restaurant named Starry Cafe.

Starry Cafe
You can enjoy a cafe (coffee shop?) and a planetarium together.

Additional ¥520 is required to enjoy planetarium, but it is interesting ( You can eat meals without seeing planetarium).

I ate a lunch at this cafe while seeing planetarium (The programs are only Japanese). However, the inside is quite dark during the program, so, I had to pay attention to eat them 🙁 Drinking might be better than eating during the program.
