Lounge Review: SKY LOUNGE at Tokyo Haneda

Lounge Review: SKY LOUNGE at Tokyo Haneda

While I visited some of the domestic credit card lounges at Tokyo Haneda airport, I never had a chance to visit the one in the international terminal – SKY LOUNGE – until the beginning of my trip to Korea back in October.

The lounge is located one level above the main departures floor and can be accessed by an escalator located right past immigration. It is available to passengers holding select Japanese credit cards as well as for a one time fee of about 10 dollars.

Lounge Overview

The lounge’s reception was shared with TIAT Lounge – a lounge run by the same company but accessible to premium passengers of certain airlines instead of credit card holders.

Right past the entrance into the actual SKY LOUNGE, there was a luggage rack.

Then, there was the main seating area in a typical “rows of sofa chairs” lounge configuration.

Separately, there was a counter along the windows offering some apron views. On the counter, there was also one computer that passengers could browse the Internet on – for a fee!

On a positive note, there were plenty of power outlets throughout the seating area.

Notice the coin-operated computer. 10 minutes of Internet use almost cost 1 dollar…

There was also a counter with drinks which I will get to further down in the review.

Finally, there was a hallway which led to a smoking room, a relaxation room and restrooms.

Food and Drinks Selection

Similar to other Japanese credit card lounges, there was a selection of soft drinks on offer for free with alcohol and food requiring a separate charge.

There was a selection of soft drinks from an automatic dispenser as well as a selection of juices. As for hot drinks, there was a coffee machine and a selection of teas.

As for the paid food, I didn’t try anything, but below is the menu for reference.

SKY LOUNGE Tokyo Haneda International Terminal Summary

Given that SKY LOUNGE is as simple and basic of a lounge as it gets, there is not much to summarize. It is an acceptable place to spend some time at before flight if you can access it for free.

However, if you have access to any of the airline lounges at the airport, you should definitely skip this one. Similarly, if you have to pay to get in, don’t – spend the money on some tasty food in the terminal’s food court instead.

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.
