The new ANA lounge will feature Yamato-kabe wood and will be designed by Kengo Kuma

All Nippon Airways (ANA) will open a lounge in Tokyo Narita International Airport (NRT) on March 29 located at Terminal 1, Satellite 2,

The construction and design of the lounge was supervised by renowned designer, Kengo Kuma, and it adheres to the philosophy of “Ichigo ichie” (treasure every encounter as if it were once in a lifetime.) The new Narita lounge features a traditional “Yamato-kabe” wood wall design to create a bright, warm and relaxing atmosphere. Kuma has also recently supervised the renovation of ANA’s lounges at Chitose, Itami, Fukuoka and Okinawa Airports. Kuma also designed ANA’s new THE Suite First Class seats and THE Room Business Class seats on select international flights.

“Like other ANA lounges that have been renovated in recent years, this new lounge at Narita provides a superior level of comfort to passengers departing from Narita Airport,” said Hideki Kunugi, Executive Vice President of ANA in today’s announcement. “Many of our passengers traveling through Asia pass through Narita Airport. Ensuring that these passengers can easily access one of ANA’s lounges no matter where they are located in the airport exemplifies ANA’s commitment to Japanese hospitality and passenger convenience.”

The lounge’s buffet will offer a range of dining options while the noodle bar provides guests with their choice of Japanese ramen. Designed to provide hospitality for all, the lounge is wheelchair accessible and contains priority seating areas.
