Haneda to Shinagawa Prince Hotel by taxi

Me and my hubby intend to take a cab from Haneda airport to Shinagawa Prince Hotel after we land at 11pm on a Sat. Does anyone know if the taxis charge by meter or fix rate?

meter. No flat rate to Shinagawa as meter rate is below the minimum flat rate.

Bibmbob is right. Shinagawa is out of flat rate zone. It'll cost nearly 8,000yen including the express way toll.

Thanks both! In this case, I may as well stay in Hotel Ryumeikan which was my first choice. Ryumeikan is in Chuo, so may I just confirm if this is one of the flat rate zones and if so, which zone and the rate?

Chuo ward is also out of the flat zone:

Ryumeikan is much better than the Shinagawa Prince. If you're landing at 11pm, you should be able to take the Keikyu (last one at 00:02) to Shinagawa or the monorail (last one at 00:10) to Hamamatsucho then JR to Tokyo Station.

Dear all.

Thank you so much for your advice! Unfortunately, I was no longer able to get rooms at Hotel Ryumeikan. Hence will be staying at Shinagawa Prince since we want to take shinkansen to Kyoto.

Hopefully, we will have a smooth touch down and customs clearance Keikyu or worst case bus to Shinagawa Prince.

Thank you once again

Will we need to buy the airport express bus ticket before we arrive or just buy it at the airport?

Buy bus ticket from the machine, in Japanese only - at least the domestic terminal. Hopefully a staff nearby can help you out.
