My flight to Tokyo went without incident, and the airline staff were super helpful and friendly. It was 7.30 pm Tokyo time when we had arrived, and commuters were still leaving the office, so the monorail train from Haneda airport got crowded a few stops down. But that got me to the nearest metro station, and I could get to Tokyo Station from there. (My Marriott Courtyard hotel is close to Tokyo Station). Of course, the station is very big, so I could not find the hotel immediately. Tired and with two bags in tow, I went for Plan B : got into a taxi to take me there. The cabby’s English was poor (and my Japanese non-existent), but I could tell he was taking me to the wrong Courtyard (there is one in Ginza as well) .. so I just called the right Courtyard Hotel and asked them to give him directions .. and hey! I have a bed to sleep in.
