Tokyo Heliport (東京へリポート Tōkyō Heripōto) is a heliport in Kōtō, Tokyo, Japan, mainly used for chartered flights in the Greater Tokyo Area.

Access to the airport is through Shin-Kiba Station. Approximately 15 companies do business at this heliport. Although there is no scheduled service, the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department, Tokyo Fire Department, Kawasaki Fire Department and other public agencies use the facility, along with news outfits like All Nippon Helicopters, and similar companies.


The Tokyo metropolitan government opened a Tokyo Heliport in the nearby Tatsumi area in 1964. It was replaced by the current Tokyo Heliport in June 1972. The heliport was expanded significantly in 1990, and a new management building opened in 2011.[2]


The heliport has 38 parking berths including ten for large helicopters.[3]
