Lounge Review: ANA Lounge (Domestic Terminal North) at Tokyo Haneda

ANA operates a pair of lounges in terminal 2 – the terminal serving the airline’s domestic flights – at Tokyo Haneda airport. Recently, I had a chance to visit the one on the northern side of the terminal.

And, while both the north and south lounge are more or less the same, the south one features a Star Wars-themed kids’ room. As such, I hope to visit it soon to review that part of the lounge.

First, though, here is a review of the ANA Lounge in the northern part of Haneda airport’s terminal 2.

Lounge Overview

After entering the lounge’s door near gate 60, there was a set of escalators leading up to the lounge floor at the end of which was the reception desk. This area also included the rest rooms – which I found a bit odd given that one basically had to leave the lounge to get to them.

Towards the side of the reception were three phone booths that are set up in most Japanese lounges.

I mentioned this in one of my previous reviews as well, but I think they are a great idea.

They don’t take up much space, allow people in the lounge to relax without having to listen to someone else’s call, and yet allow someone that wants to talk on the phone to do so without disturbing others.

Further down in the lounge was another area for calling, although that one was much less private.

Near the reception, there was also a display case with ANA’s elite status luggage tags and an ANA cell phone. And, there was a map detailing the various parts of the lounge.

Overview of the lounge.

The majority of the lounge – as one would expect, especially in the case of a domestic one – was made up of seating.

There were five main seating sections which mostly consisted of sofa chairs with coffee tables lined up in rows.

However, there were also some more “creative” areas such as the arrangement below.

And, there was a couple of counters, both with and without counter-height chairs.

Finally, on the left end (as seen from the reception) of the lounge, there was a smoking room and a business center.

Separately, there were two drink and snack stations (more on that below) and two areas with Japanese reading materials including magazines and newspapers.

In terms of drinks, both soft and alcoholic ones were on offer.

Starting with the alcoholic ones, there were several auto-dispensing machines both for beer and high ball. And, there was whisky and shochu.

ANA Lounge Tokyo Haneda Domestic Terminal North Summary

The ANA Lounge in Haneda’s domestic terminal offered exactly what someone on a domestic business trip might need – a quiet space to work with plenty of power outlets. However, the “quiet” part might have been caused by the fact that I visited there shortly before the last flight of the day.

Other than that, the contents of the ANA Lounge North in Haneda’s domestic terminal (except for the design, of course) were roughly the same as what you would find in JAL’s counterpart and in any other Japanese domestic non-first class lounge.

Before you go... Here are 3 quick tips for travel:

For your convenience: Price comparison sites

When searching for flights and accommodation, use comparison sites that will summarize prices from a variety of sources including the airline sites and online travel agencies for you. I recommend HotelsCombined for comparing hotel prices and Momondo for comparing flight prices.

For your comfort: Unlimited airport lounge access

If you generally fly in economy class and don’t have an airline status, I recommend considering a Priority Pass Prestige membership which will give you unlimited access to over 1,200 lounges at more than 500 airports all over the world.

For your peace of mind: Travel insurance

Make sure you have adequate insurance coverage - whether through your credit card or through insurance policy purchased separately. This will help save your trip when you get sick or things stolen on the road, in other words, when things go wrong. In case you didn't get your travel insurance yet, I recommend getting a free quote from World Nomads. To save some time, you can also use the form below.
