HND is by far the preferred airport for those who live in Tokyo in terms of speed and convenience. HND is much shorter drive, and by public transport the Keikyu subway line to HND is much easier, cheaper, and faster than any method going to NRT. Literally 11 minutes to Shinagawa and 20 minutes to Tokyo Station. In comparison, very few Japanese travelers prefer taking the N'EX or the Keisei Skyliner to NRT.

HND is like LGA, but even better since it has a fast subway connection to Tokyo.
