Narita Airport: Terminal 1
My trip back to the USA through the Narita International Airport (Terminal 1) was very nice!
For those with a long layover in the terminal, Terminal 1 offers some nice amenities, such as free access to power (got to charge those devices!), pay phones, free Wi-Fi, good souvenir shopping, fresh food, massage chairs at the gates, fabulously clean restrooms and special rooms for families/medical needs, and a properly smokey (and fairly crowded) smoker’s room.
We only had a couple of hours to wait so I signed onto the free Wi-Fi and caught up on work email and did some shopping. And I took a few pictures to share with you!
The airport cafe sells really tasty foods, and in case you need a last minute gift, they sell special Kit Kat flavors that are unique to Japan. I purchased the wasabi, red bean paste, and strawberry cheesecake flavors. Everyone so far has really liked what they tried. I love the strawberry cheesecake.
The Nestle corporation captured the essence of strawberry cheesecake and put it in a Kit Kat. The box is adorable and is Mt. Fuji-shaped! In-depth reviews of these and other regional Kit Kat bars are on the Kotaku website.
Read the signs and sort your trash!
Get a massage!
After you finish shopping, charging your devices, and eat, then you can relax in a luscious massage chair at 200 yen (about US$2) for 10 minutes as you watch the ground crew get your plane ready for take off.
Unique to Terminal 1 is the Oxygen Lounge JUKO. I’ll have to try that next time!
