“I do so prefer this airport over Narita. I was headed to Taipei, and then over to Hong Kong at the close of the day, and leaving from Haneda was a breath of fresh air. Great airport, shiny, lots of offerings and shopping. I even had time to load up on Shu uemura and Shiseido make up before leaving. Pretty fun shopping, I must confess. Had some okonomiyaki that didn’t break the bank before heading to Songshan airport, and then over to Taoyuan. Didn’t I say that I was exhausted from shuttling about daily?”
