ANA Lounge Tokyo Narita Review

ANA Lounge Tokyo Narita Review

My mom and I spent about 3 hours in the ANA Lounge inside Tokyo-Narita Airport, and overall we had a great visit. This lounge is one of my favorite Priority Pass lounges and has excellent food. In this ANA lounge Tokyo Narita review, I’ll discuss the lounge including how to gain access, the overall comfort and everything else you need to know.

ANA Lounge Tokyo Narita Review – Location

The ANA Lounge in Tokyo’s Narita airport is located near Gate 53 in Terminal 1. When you take the escalator to the top, the lounge will be straight ahead. It is possible to access this lounge as long as you are in Terminal 1, but it is specifically located in Satellite 5.

How to Gain Access to the Lounge

Here are the possible ways you can gain access to the ANA Lounge Tokyo Narita: 

  • A Priority Pass Card (Note: They may not allow access during peak times)
  • A Star Alliance Gold Card
  • A Star Alliance Business Class Ticket
  • An ANA Premium Economy Ticket

We accessed the lounge by using Priority Pass. I’ve heard that in recent weeks, they have started to restrict Priority Pass Access until after 11 AM, so keep that in mind. When traveling during peak times the lounge may be closed to Priority Pass guests, however there is also another lounge that is accessible with Priority Pass in Satellite 2.

ANA Lounge Tokyo Narita Review – The Seating

This is probably the largest lounge I’ve been to, and the amount of seating that this lounge has is endless. There are also some nap rooms at the far end of the lounge, though those were full for my visit. The seating is very similar to the ANA Lounge in Tokyo Haneda.

ANA Lounge Tokyo Narita – Food and Beverage

The food and beverage options at the ANA Lounge Tokyo Narita are the same for breakfast as they are at the ANA Lounge in Tokyo Haneda Airport. There is also a noodle bar, and orders can be placed by scanning a QR Code. When your food, is ready a text will be sent.

The ANA Lounge Tokyo Narita noodle menu is:

  1. Kitsune (Deep fried Tofu) with Soba or Udon
  2. Grated Yam and Wakame Seaweed with Soba or Udon
  3. Kakiage (Deep-Fried Various Vegetables) with Soba or Udon
  4. ANA Original Chicken Curry
  5. Ramen with Pork Broth

There is also a great buffet. They had a number of great Asian food options, along with some American food options (they had fried chicken, for example).

ANA Lounge Tokyo Narita – Amenities

This lounge does have fast Wi-Fi, but when I checked the lounge map, there was a part of the map scratched out, which I assume means that they got rid of showers during COVID. I find this to be a bit odd, as the same lounge in Tokyo-Haneda Airport has showers.

However, it seems like if I had asked the reception, showers would have been available. There are also two nap rooms available, but when we were there, both were in use, so I didn’t take photos of them.

ANA Lounge Tokyo Narita Service

The service at the ANA Lounge in Tokyo Narita Airport was quite good. It wasn’t personalized, but during my layovers in Japan, I didn’t have a single bad interaction. Japanese people are some of the kindest people I’ve met, and this lounge was no exception.

ANA Lounge Tokyo Narita Review – Bottom Line

I really enjoyed my time at the ANA Lounge Tokyo-Narita. Compared to many Priority Pass lounges in US Airports, this is a huge improvement. Overall ANA delivers a solid product here with comfortable seating, a decent selection of both Japanese and Western food and good service. It’s everything a business class lounge should be. A nice place to escape the terminal.

    • Hi lc, my apologies for the delay. Yes, unfortunately, a couple of months ago ANA cut Priority Pass access at the ANA Lounge located in Tokyo Haneda’s Terminal 3.

  1. Thanks for the helpful review. With priority pass, did they also charge a fee to access this lounge? I have a 9hr layover in Narita — do you know if I could spend close to 9hrs inside this lounge — or would they impose a time limit? Thank you.

    • Hi Adam! So if you are using Priority Pass with an eligible card, so a Chase Sapphire Reserve, Amex Platinum, etc., then there isn’t a fee. But, if you are using a Hilton Surpass after your 10th visit, then you will be charged $32.

      When my mom and I were there, we had an ~8 hour layover. They told us we had 3 hours before we had to leave. We left around 2 hours after we entered. But, there was no one enforcing that rule, so I’d assume you’d be okay. There’s also the IASS and Korean air lounge, but I’ve heard they aren’t as good, and all 3 lounges are restricting access from what I’ve seen. So you could lounge hop, but if not, NRT is such a nice airport that I’d be okay with eating some food in the lounge and then hanging out in an empty gate area, especially if the lounge is busy. Have a great trip!

      • Thanks for the info & advice John! I think I’m looking forward to the shower more than anything else but a napping pod might be good too if no one really enforces the time limit.
