(Wednesday, June 29, 1966, 3:39 a.m. JST) — The Beatles arrived this morning at Haneda Airport in Tokyo (having lost a day by crossing the date line) to begin their Summer 1966 Asia Mini-Tour.

They stayed at the Tokyo Hilton where they had their own floor, occupying the Presidential Suite.

Hotel security was the tightest that The Beatles had yet endured, preventing them from making unplanned sightseeing trips around the Tokyo streets.
