Around 5 PM on the 12th of April, we landed at Narita Airport. It would’ve been a wiser choice to land at Haneda Airport, but we didn’t realize that at the time. Haneda would have been closer to our hotel and its architecture is more artistic and pleasing to the eye. No biggie.
We walked all the way from the terminal gate to the customs. The queue was quite long, but the Japanese were organized and the line kept moving along smoothly until it was our turn to check in. They asked us to place both forefingers in small fingerprint scanner and press down on it so that it clicked like a trackpad button would do on a laptop. “Thank you”.
