Lounge Review: ANA Business Lounge, Tokyo Narita International Airport

In a matter of days (form today) Japan will finally be reopening its’ borders to everyone and I am sure that many would be rushing to visit the country again after such a prolonged closure. I had the privilege of “visiting” Japan during the Covid border closures albeit only for a few hours and airside at the airport. Here is a review of my visit not too long ago to the ANA Business Lounge.

As the only operating lounge at this terminal, it was very busy when I visited because there were many Star Alliance flights departing around about the same time. There was even a line to get in the lounge but thankfully, it moved pretty quickly.

Once through the lounge reception, the business lounge is on the left, First on the right and another long walkway to the right towards the showers’ reception. As soon as I walked in to the Business area, I was surprised to see how busy the place was.

Whilst it’s great that the lounge had a live noodle bar, the location and design could have been better. It was located in a very tight corner and ordering a bowl of curry simply felt like going into a broom closet.

The back area of the lounge is where one is more likely to find a seat during the peak hours. I really liked the partitioned “cubicles where one could sit, eat and work comfortably.

The highlight of my time at the lounge would have been the showers. There was a long (45 minute) wait for my turn but it was well worth it!
