One of the most popular and sought after tourist destinations in Japan is the Tokyo Disney resorts. Enjoying the magical rides of the magical Disney theme park is definitely among the bucket list of travellers who visit Japan each year.

In view of the tremendous popularity of the Tokyo Disney resorts among both local and foreign tourists alike, the East Japan Railway Co is set to open a new train route that would directly link Haneda airport to the Tokyo Disney resorts.


This new route will be part of East Japan Railway Co’s vision of establishing three train lines to and from the airport by utilizing the existing networks in the area. This initiative stemmed from the stiff competition among train operators in relation to the increasing number of tourists and international passengers arriving in Haneda airport which is now regarded as the fifth busiest worldwide.


The new train route is set to be completed around nine years from now. Currently trains on the route that connects the airport to Chiba Prefecture which is the nearest train station to Tokyo Disneyland and Disneysea fun from the existing Keiyo and Rinkai lines. Based on the plans for the new project, these train routes will be linked.


To implement their plans, East Japan Railway Co’s is coordinating with the metropolitan government of Tokyo. The latter owns more that ninety percent of the company that operates the Rinkai Line.
