I’m on my way home from a ski trip in Hokkaido and a visit to the ANA Lounge at Haneda Airport during my stopover in Tokyo is very welcome. The lounge is minimalist and spacious with a live cooking station and ramen counter to make it feel uniquely Japanese. The lounge has free Wi-Fi, a range of comfortable seating options with charging ports (900 seats in total), newspapers and magazines.

Showers

I love the luxury of having a shower at the airport, and apparently, so do many of the other guests at the lounge. The shower area has its own entrance and a receptionist with a buzzer who will notify me when a shower is available. The wait time is 30 minutes, so it’s a good thing I went as soon as I arrived. The shower is spacious and the bathroom area has a towel railing and luggage stand to store my belongings. I am on an overnight flight so it’s fantastic to be able to shower beforehand.

Buffet and live cooking stations

While I wait for my shower, I survey the buffet. There are many Japanese options and a few Western ones. I opt for ANA’s Original Chicken Curry over rice but beef consommé soup, fried chicken, pasta and pork buns are available. Then there’s a chef making fresh kitsune (deep-fried tofu) with soba or udon noodles and pork broth ramen to order. Salads, sandwiches, rice balls and desserts are also on offer. In true Tokyo style, there are a number of machines pouring beers, coffee, tea and a variety of drinks. You can also help yourself to a selection of Japanese whiskeys and saké.
