HND Intl to Domestic 1:50 Enough Time?

I'm looking at booking a route SFO-HND-KIX/ITM near end of March next year.

1. Is 1 hour and 50 minutes enough time to go thru customs/immigration and transfer with or without check luggage?

2. Difference if heading to ITM or KIX?

3. In PE or J make a difference?

Thanks for any input.

That's more than enough. MCT is 70 min for int'l to domestic transfer on JL. No fast track for business and premium economy passenger. So only difference is you get off the plane faster.

Ive always been thru immigrations within 20 mins (last time was behind a flight from china and usa)
luggage had never been over another 10 mins for me (i have ow tags nonetheless). Sometimes another 10 mins for customs.
Transit to dom terminal takes no more than 15 mins on bus.
you only need to drop ur bags at dom terminal 20 mins before take off.

You'd have 30 mins buffer. You may need another 10 mins for luggage then u still have 20 mins buffer.

whats the bagdrop cutoff in the intl terminal for dom flights?

I have done it once with 75mins, arrived in J and without checked bags, and I walk fast. Still have enough time to visit the Diamond lounge and grab some sushi at a stand up bar restaurant at the domestic terminal.
