Airport information:

Haneda International Airport :
is located closer to central Tokyo than Narita International Airport. There are fewer transportation options from the airport to central Tokyo and the journey is much quicker and cheaper.
Narita International Airport :
is further from central Tokyo but does offer more public transportation options to reach downtown Tokyo, including the JR rail system. Some other options are – the Narita Express, the Keisei Sky liner, Airport Limousine bus service. (most popular and the travel time is about 1 hour)

Japan Rail Pass for overseas visitors to Japan:

For those who wish to see more of Japan, it is recommended to get the Japan Rail Pass. The Japan Rail Pass is a joint offering between six rail companies with the largest being the Japan Railways Group (JR Group). It remains the most economical means of traveling throughout Japan by rail.

Uber in Japan

Uber is not popular in Japan. Tokyo has an abundance of taxis/cabs, so hailing one is usually not much of a problem, but unlike most western cities, it is always best to use ranks or certain curbs side stops.
Tokyo has a very efficient railway system, thus making taxi/cabs more of a pricey alternative, but those who do need to use taxis/cabs, Tokyo’ s taxis/cabs are clean, comfortable, and well-maintained, with the drivers being polite, honest and having a reasonable command of the English Language. All taxi/cabs are metered and all meters work just fine.

Thing to do:

The companies below offer hundreds of tours and activities for travelers around Tokyo!
Choose from sightseeing tours to spa escapes to interactive cultural programs and so much more.

September’s weather in Tokyo and Kyoto
Whilst temperatures in Tokyo, Kyoto and across most of Honshu remain high in September (avg temp: 23-25℃), days can be punctuated with intense periods of rainfall driven by the typhoons that hit the southern islands during the month.
In fact, September is the wettest month of the year in Tokyo. Head south-west to Hiroshima and Osaka for sunnier days with less rain.
