What is the Haneda Airport Garden Bus Terminal?

Haneda Airport Terminal 3 is the closest international terminal to Tokyo.
The Haneda Airport Garden Bus Terminal opened there in March 2023.

The long-distance highway bus service is an essential element to provide reasonable and comfortable transportation from the international terminal to other parts of Japan.

The new bus terminal was built as a solution to this problem.
