This question keeps getting asked many times a year and the answer should be in an FAQ. NRT and HND are unrelated and always will be. It’s like asking if your bags would be checked through when landing at SFO and departing SJC. Somehow that’s obviously not going to happen in the US but we Americans seem to expect it for two airports further from one another than those two, in Japan.

Collect your bags. Transit on your own. It’s a different airport in an entirely different city. Word to the wise - avoid that kind of “connection”. That’s the real problem is that airlines offer such a “connection” which they would never do for the much closer airport combination listed above.

I guess we can blame UA for that like we blame them for everything else under the (rising) sun.....
