What happens when you take the plane every single month… or sometimes twice or three times a month? When this is for work, you become completely exhausted! Luckily this time it was for my own holiday, but after going through many business trips I started to have a fixed routine.
When going to Tokyo, I ALWAYS take airline ANA. They are the best. Landing at Narita Airport, ALWAYS take the Narita Express and buy a Green Car ticket (which is more space and reserved seats). The Green Car also has a dedicated baggage lock so that you can lock it up, sit back and relax~
At the Narita airport, I go straight to ANA lounge. Less people and much more relaxing.
Seats are spacious and comfortable. Wifi connected of course, so I text or Skype my husband before I take off.
Always the usual stuff at the food corner. Very simple. Soup, salad, cheese, Japanese noodles/ appetizers and some sweets. Unfortunately food selection is not as impressive as the Singapore Airlines Lounge that I shared before here, but the food here is always fresh.
But I can say it is very Japanese to have not only soft drinks, but all kinds of alcohols. Wine, beer, whiskey, Japanese Sake and … even champagne?
And out of all these food and drinks at the lounge, I always get the same thing. Japanese tea and noodles at the noodle bar. Yes, they have a noodle bar as well. You can choose between Soba or Udon.
After a relaxing 1 hour at the lounge, time to board the plane!
