At 11:30pm they announced they would be handing out sleeping bags and so I queued up to get one along with water and some crackers. Found a quiet corner to lie down in and slept well. - Patrick

Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down of what travellers have reported to us during their time at Tokyo Narita Airport.

What to Expect

  • The airport is divided into 3 terminals, T1, T2, and T3.
  • Terminal 3 houses low-cost carriers so the space is much smaller and the facilities more basic.
  • This airport is sleep-friendly with many modern Japanese conveniences, including clean facilities, lots of charging spots, and decent sleeping areas. Staff and security are tolerant of overnight guests, but you should be prepared to present ID and proof of your ongoing flight.
  • Free WiFi is available. See WiFi information in the airport guide below.

Where to Sleep

  • There’s not too many overnight travellers here. T1 is the most comfortable spot and security moves everyone to an area with benches and carpeting.
  • Travellers have used the benches near the restaurants after they closed; it’s unclear if this is the same area the security guards corral everyone.
  • Some travellers report that security staff did a routine check of passports and tickets to make sure everyone are travellers.
  • Lights are turned down at night.
  • T3 has a lot of bed-like couches.
  • For uninterrupted sleep, there are days rooms in the transit area, sleep pods in the public area and several nearby hotels that provide a hotel shuttle. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.

Good to Know

  • Showers are available for a fee. See Showers in the airport guide below for locations.
  • Economy class travellers can buy entry to several airport lounges. See Airport Lounges in the airport guide below for locations and rates.
