Two gripes 1 - The terminal itself tends to be overheated in winter and a little on the warm side in summer and 2 - Terminal 2 doesn't really have a good foreign language bookshop...loads of books on Japan, but nothing much in the way of novels or light reading. However, compared to Port Moresby or Denpasar, Narita is pretty fantastic!" Added 21 May 2005

Being someone who smokes almost a pack a day the plethera of smoking rooms is one of the biggest benifits to being stuck in the airport. With in the last year or so the improvments they have been making to the terminals i9s great. Down stairs away from the bussel of people tring to catch the flight they are fifteen minuets late for are large pleather lazy-boys that at least allow you to recline the backs to vertical.

We were both extremely tired, and I somehow left my bag on a table, with my passport, visas, money, etc. Lucky they are fairly honest people there, and someone handed it in." Added October 10, 2004

At closing time, airport security staff made everybody who was staying the night move to a small brightly-lit area. When everybody was there, several security guards and airport police asked took our details and asked a few questions, then they all left except for one or two who sat and guarded the doorway. All security staff were polite, no hassles or anything.When I slept there, many other people were doing the same so it was very cramped, I didn't have much room to stretch out, and didn't get much sleep. I expected that, though.After checking in to leave, there is an area where you can rent a shower.
