Japan 1998 - Day 6
... of a full week's airliner spotting in the 'land of the falling Yen' !

Arrive at Narita | Down to Nagoya | Osaka-Itami | Osaka-Kansai | Osaka-Kansai then Tokyo-Haneda
Tokyo-Haneda | Tokyo-Haneda & Tokyo-Narita | Depart Narita

Saturday 4th April - Tokyo-Haneda

Alarm went off at 0600, a little later than we might have got up, as the first departure from Haneda is 0615, and there are about 20 up to 0700, but we couldn't bring ourselves to get up any earlier. We caught the monorail again to the airport, which was already very busy. It's worth looking out to the left as you approach the airport, as you pass alongside some hangars, one of which is the Maritime Support Agency hangar; fortunately the doors were open and the two Saab 340's and two Falcon 900's (along with various helicopters) were easily seen and read.

There are a lot of aeroplanes based at Haneda, and we logged almost 140 Japanese airliners throughout the day, although we didn't write anything down that we had not seen earlier in the day, in about the last 5 hours of our stay during the afternoon !.

There is a very pleasant Coffee Shop on the fourth floor of the Galleria underneath the viewing deck, which has a view onto 34L/16R. We had breakfast here; Y1,000 for an American breakfast, which was extremely good. Lunch was a hot dog in a Dairy Queen by the monorail station, for about Y450.

The day did drag somewhat, particularly as you can't even amuse yourself taking photographs after mid-day, as it's into sun.

We had a celebratory beer on the roof terrace as the sun went down just before our departure, a very pleasant reflection if you like on our attempt at the Japanese domestic fleets, and caught the monorail back to Hamamatsucho.

In the evening we went off in search of another underline in our Hard Rock Cafe production list book, and caught the subway to the Tokyo branch in Roppongi. The subway system is very clear, and easy to use for visitors, and the round-trip, involving a change of lines, and about 8 stops either way, cost Y560. The HRC was the same price as the Osaka one.

A less frenetic copping day than the previous evening, as we mopped up those remaining domestic airliners that we were going to get. I got 27 new during the day.
