Flying to Tokyo
1. Which airports serve Bangkok to Tokyo?
Flying out of Bangkok, you have two options: Suvarnabhumi Airport (also known as Bangkok Airport) or Bangkok Don Muang Airport. Bangkok Airport is approximately 25 km east of downtown Bangkok and serves all international commercial flights. Don Mueang International Airport is known as a low-cost airline hub and is approximately 24 km north of Bangkok.
Tokyo has two airports that you can travel to from Bangkok. Haneda Airport (also known as Tokyo International Airport) is your first option and is located 14 km south of Tokyo Station, the city’s main intercity rail terminal. Narita International Airport is approximately 60 km east of central Tokyo and is Japan’s predominant international airport.
2. Which airlines operate flights from Bangkok to Tokyo?
There is no shortage of airlines to turn to when planning your trip Tokyo, with many offering daily departures. Some of the major carriers serving this route include JAL, Air France, British Airways, China Airlines, Cathay, Lufthansa and Malaysia.
3. How long is the flight?
A non-stop flight from Bangkok to Tokyo will take 6-6.5 hours, and there are many options for direct flights. Tokyo is two hours ahead of Bangkok time, so bear this in mind when planning your travel.
4. Climate changes between Bangkok and Tokyo
Bangkok is predictably warm throughout the entire year, so when traveling to Tokyo, you will want to be sure you bring extra layers. Tokyo’s temperatures are generally warm from May to September but begin to dip in October and can be quite cool throughout the rest of the year.
5. Culture differences and need-to-know
The website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan can tell you whether or not you need a visa to enter Japan. For residents of most countries, you will not need a visa for a short stay.
Japan’s currency is the Japanese yen, and there is generally no need to purchase the currency before your trip. Japan is a very cash-driven economy, and many businesses will only accept cash, so don’t wait before getting yours!
Japanese culture is laden with customs. Among them are group dining etiquette, bowing, no tipping for travel or food and other local customs that you will want to familiarize yourself with prior to your arrival.
Tokyo is approximately 2200 km squared and home to around 13.6 million people. Beyond its size, the sheer density of people in Tokyo will be a change of pace from Bangkok’s relative spaciousness.
Due to rapid growth throughout the 20th century, Bangkok is one of the most congested cities in the world. Tokyo’s cityscape is highly modernized, and the city has been recognized as a leader in local public transportation. It might be crowded, but you’ll be able to navigate Tokyo’s clean and efficient streets with relative ease.
Be sure to make your way to one of Tokyo’s must-sees, including the Edo-Tokyo Museum, the Rikugi-en Garden and Shibuya Crossing, an infamously busy city intersection.
When it comes to food, the basics you must try are soba noodles, Edomae seafood and unagi no kabayaki. For restaurants, more lavish dining options include Shunju Tameikesanno if you’re into eight-course meals (they even have vegan-friendly options) or Fish Bank Tokyo for a view of the city at night and French-inspired seafood dishes.
Wherever you go in Tokyo, you’re sure to be surrounded by incredibly helpful, kind and respectful people who want you to enjoy your stay.
