There are also Keisei buses available into various destinations in Tokyo, with fares starting around 3000JPY ($35).

For Haneda: There are taxis outside Haneda airport, but unlike Narita, this airport is far closer to the city, so taxis tend to be much more reasonable, expect a fare to range between 6000-8000JPY ($68-90). There are numerous buses that run from the airport to the city centre, for about 1000JPY ($11).

Both airports have an extensive and comprehensive range of car rental services available in all the terminals.
