Narita Airport and lounge experience:
Please read my report on the Narita Airport JAL Sakura lounge can be found here.
Gate area and boarding
The domestic gates are about 10-15 mins walk from the Sakura lounge. I left the lounge a bit early and made my way to the gate. It was a ground floor gate. The waiting area was quite nice – offering a wonderful view of the airport.
The boarding was quite orderly. I was in no hurry, so I was one of the last person to board. It was going to be a short flight in economy and I was ready for it with a book in my hand to read. Another objective was to take photos of Mt Fuji. spotting Mt. Fuji from the air is such a big deal that JAL has a website, which tells you from which side of the plane you could see Mt Fuji.
I used the above website to determine that Mt Fuji will be on the right side. Let me tell you, the website was right and I was lucky to see fantastic view of Mt Fuji from the air. The mountain just two days ago I had climbed.
Narita was busy that morning on the international side, with many nice tails on offer.
View of Mt Fuji from the air
It was such a clear and beautiful day that I could actually see the climbing trail from the window.
The flight was short and good. JAL does not offer complementary food service for short-haul. So no updates on that side. We landed on time in Nagoya.
