Barcelona is one of the busiest ports in the Mediterranean and is far more than merely the capital of Catalonia. In terms of culture, sport and commerce it’s on par with Madrid, and rivals Europe’s greatest cities. The Old Town has many historic monuments, but Barcelona is perhaps best known for the magnificent buildings left here by the Modernisme artistic movement of the early 1900s. The whole city still sizzles with energy and creativity.
With a reputation for punctuality, efficiency and cleanliness, Tokyo’s Haneda Airport (also known as Tokyo International Airport) is one of the country’s main air transport hubs and connects to destinations across the globe.
This is an exceptionally busy airport, handling over 72 million passengers a year, making it the fourth-busiest airport for passenger numbers in the world. However, passengers flying from Tokyo with Qatar Airways will find this to be a very personalised airport, where staff are quick to help and the emphasis is on an excellent passenger experience from the moment you step through the doors.
Transportation and parking
Tokyo’s public transport system is legendary, and the same is true of its connections to the airport. Direct trains run between Haneda and Narita Airport (Tokyo’s other major airport), and the airport is also served directly by Tokyo’s Monorail service, which has a dedicated station at each terminal. The Keikyu train network also connects to Tokyo and other cities across Japan to the airport. Bus routes are just as plentiful, including the Haneda Airport Express bus.
Taxis operate on a set fare basis and the journey time by taxi from the centre of Tokyo to the airport is approximately 25-40 minutes, depending on traffic conditions. Both short and long-term parking is available at each terminal, with shuttle buses running between the parking areas and the terminals. There are approximately 3,000 spaces at the International terminal, but these fill up quickly. Pre-booking is advised.
Arriving in Tokyo
Passengers flying from Tokyo with Qatar Airways depart from the International Terminal. The check-in and security process is efficient, so it is sufficient to arrive approximately one hour before your flight is due to leave. A number of public lounges are located in the International Departures Area 4F, and a private VIP lounge is also available.
Facilities and amenities
Facilities are excellent at the airport, and it even has its own shopping ‘street’ where you’ll find a wide selection of luxury goods, accessories and electronics in particular. You’ll also be able to access the Duty Free shopping area once you have passed through security checks. Wi-Fi is free and extensive throughout the terminal, and there are also fixed Internet points in the Departures area.
Diners are well catered for, with excellent quality vendors serving both Japanese and international cuisine ranging from on-the-go noodles and snacks through to more substantial restaurant menus.

At 9pm in the evening, Barcelona has a unique landmark that enchants those who see it – the musical fountains of in Plaça d'Espanya. The Barri Gòtic or Gothic Quarter is the medieval heart of the city, but some structures date even further back to the Roman settlement of Catalonia.
A slightly more modern addition to the city’s landscape is the Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona Pavilion. Originally built in 1929 but torn down less than a year later, the reconstructed version built in 1986 demonstrates how important to the history of modern architecture the original was.
Barcelona is also packed with World Heritage sites, including the striking Park Güell, the extraordinary Casa Batlló (one of Antoni Gaudi’s architectural masterpieces) and the truly stunning Palau de la Música Catalana, where you can hear some of Barcelona’s finest musicians perform. There is also a myriad of galleries to explore, as well as plenty of open spaces to relax in.
