Lounge Review: JAL Sakura lounge Tokyo Narita Terminal 2
JAL Sakura lounge is located in Terminal 2 of Narita airport, right after you clear security and immigration.
Food & Drinks
The dining area is on the upper floor and is the only place where you can eat something in the lounge. Space on the upper floor is limited but we had no problem finding a spot overlooking the airfield. A couple of cold and hot Japanese dishes (miso soup, curry, rice, tamagoyaki,…) as well as European dishes (scrambled eggs, soup, meat balls, salad, pastries…) are available, it was nothing special but anyone should definitely find something to fill his stomach. Some soft drinks, wine and beer are also available here.
The main drink options however are available on the ground floor, and you can find literally everything you need here as you can see in the pictures. In terms of variety for both, spirits and soft drinks, it could be the largest variety I have seen so far in a business class lounge
The ground floor is divided into two. One big area with plenty of seating options are available on the ground floor. From high chairs overlooking the airfield, over normal tables, relaxing chairs and sofas, you will not have a problem to find a spot according to your needs as the ground floor is really huge.
The second are is a lot smaller and has a smoking lounge embedded within. I would avoid this area, because due to the bad insulation of the smoking lounge the smell of cigarettes is everywehre in this area.
Power sockets were available at most places as well ass complimentary WiFi. They offered the usual services such as small spaces to make phone calls and showers. They also have a decent business center with computers and printers on offer. A highlight in Japanese lounges are often the massage chairs, unfortunately during our short stay they were all occupied. Even at least one room with a bed which you could reserve exists.
National and international magazines were available as well.
This lounge is perfect to relax a little bit before your flight and grab something decent to eat and drink along with it as long as you avoid the smaller area with the smoking lounge. More than enough seating possibilities are available to accomodate people even if it gets crowded. Only on the upper floor I can imagine it coud get difficult to find a space to eat during the rush hour.
