Lounge Review: JAL Sakura Lounge Tokyo Narita Satellite
The JAL Sakura Lounge Tokyo Narita Satellite is one out of four different Japan Airlines lounges at its secondary hub in Tokyo Narita. The lounge is quite nice overall as you’ll see in this review.
We’ve already reviewed plenty of lounges at Tokyo Narita Airport, including the following:
- American Airlines Admirals Club Tokyo Narita
- Cathay Pacific Lounge Tokyo Narita
- JAL First Class Lounge Tokyo Narita
- JAL First Class Lounge Tokyo Narita Satellite
- JAL Sakura Lounge Tokyo Narita
- Qantas Lounge Tokyo Narita
This review marks the last one for now, but you should have gotten a very good overview of what is available at Tokyo’s second biggest airport for oneworld customers. Let’s get to the Sakura Lounge in particular, which is located in the Satellite Terminal as you’d expect.
Seating in the JAL Sakura Lounge Tokyo Narita Satellite
The JAL Sakura Lounge Tokyo Narita Satellite consits of one long-shaped room with several privacy partitions. While there are no doors or anything, you still feel relatively private in all areas.
As you’d expect, the JAL Sakura Lounge comes with plenty of different seating arrangements, from comfortable couches and armchairs to a business center and a dining area to more basic armchairs with tables to very comfortable chairs right by the window.
Speaking of the windows, the whole JAL Sakura Lounge feels very bright and airy as it got a large window front facing the tarmac. That said, the view of the JAL Sakura Lounge Tokyo Narita is great.
An especially cool feature of the Japan Airlines Lounge are the massage chairs.
I also enjoyed the design of the lounge, which is a good mix of modern, yet very atmospheric and cozy. When I was visiting, the lounge was very empty as well.
Buffet of the JAL Sakura Lounge Tokyo Narita Satellite
When it comes to the buffet selection at the JAL Sakura Lounge Tokyo Narita Satellite, it is worth noting that I visited at a time with rarely any planned departure from the Satellite Terminal.
Thus, the buffet was definitly on its usual level. When I visited, there were a few snacks, a soup, cinnamon rolls and muffins available alongside a large selection of spirits, sake, other alcohol and soft drinks.
However, I expect that the JAL Sakura Lounge offers a way more extensive buffet, including several hot options, when the departure time of the flights is coming close. To get an idea of how the buffet might usually look, you may read our review of the JAL Sakura Lounge Tokyo Narita in the main terminal.
Entertainment in the JAL Sakura Lounge Tokyo Narita Satellite
The JAL Sakura Lounge in the Satellite Terminal comes with a spacious business center. There, you can not only find a couple of semi-private work stations, but also some equipped with computers.
As you’d expect, the complimentary Wi-Fi is offered throughout the lounge. The speed was very good and the log-in is easy.
Japan Airlines also offers a couple of different magazines and newspapers with a focus on Japanese ones, yet there is an international selection as well.
Overall impression of the JAL Sakura Lounge Tokyo Narita Satellite
Leaving the buffet out of my judgment, I really enjoyed the JAL Sakura Lounge Tokyo Narita Satellite. It’s bright and airy, comes with a very nice and cozy design and still offers great views of the tarmac. Additionally, there is a very nice business center and good Wi-Fi. Guessing that the buffet is on the same level as in the main lounge (usually), this is a great lounge I can totally recommend.
