The trip before we waited two hours in the immigration queue, to find a tiny, dirty, main terminal with ridiculous exchange rates, so decided to not bother. We slept in a small area at the top of some stairs - no one come in all that time. The transit area was clean, but a tiny place given the numbers going through. Boring but clean and safe. Little background music.P.S. Japanese airlines are the pits if you don't smoke - everyone else on the plane will - esp the staff." Added 01 April 2007

They have a large TV and two internet portals, which you have to pay to log into, in that room- and some drink machines and partitioned, vinyl padded benches. I checked my large bags in to the nearby holding area overnight, I think it was like 700 yen, not sure anymore- and when the air traffic died down, I found myself in this waiting room with three other people, all foreigners. The security there are younger Japanese men, who were very respectful (they didnt speak much English and my Japanese was not much better) when they came around to get ou continued >>

Arriving in the morning in Japan, it was the begining of the night for me, I tried to find a room to sleep. NO ROOM AVAILABLE in the airport and around!!! All hotels fully booked. Some rooms inside the airport were free but BE CARREFUL, if you get out of the International area, you can not re-enter to get a room. Security do not let you enter. So remember to stay in the International area, book your room, sleep, and then check out and change Terminal for next flight if you are in my case. I managed to sleep 2 hours in the medical center (not more than 2 hours: Japanese discipline...!!). Good luck, it was really not easy." Added 15 Oct 2006

Why has no one mentioned these? Are they gone? I didn't notice them on my last stop-over." Added 06 April 06

(Contributed by Rasslin' Cowgirl) - "I had a long wait between a connecting flight to Bombay. The airport is really clean and well taken care of. I found a free internet cafe and the seats were really comfortable for dozing off in. There are sleeping rooms which looked really posh (and expensive) but totally unnecessary. This is a great airport to sleep in. Just be careful. When I dozed off I almost missed my flight and it took a really long time to get to the terminal gate where I was supposed to board the plane. It turns out I delayed the take off by a few minutes. Since it was post-9/11 I got really searched and harassed by security before getting on the plane. Try to head to the actual gate you're departing from at least an hour before your flight. The departure lounge has really comfy seats too." Added 06 April 06
