The Lounge

I had to overnight in Tokyo and switch airports on my way to Bangkok, from Narita to Haneda, which gave me the opportunity to visit the much vaunted JAL First Class Lounge for a few hours before my "connection" (airports 40 miles away shouldn't be called a connection!).

Dining Area

The dining area has a lunch counter type ordering with a noodle chef. There are also a lot of self service food items available.

The Red Suite

The Red Suite is almost a lounge within a lounge. Reminiscent of an English home library, it contains various artifacts from JAL's history, lots of hard cover coffee table books, the champagne room, a game room, and various sitting areas. In addition to this, there is a John Lobb shoe care service also included. Totally geared towards the Japanese senior executive. I feel I may have lowered the property value by sitting in there.
Champagne Room
Don't make me leave!

Drinks

The alcohol is self service, and they have some very high end spirits, located in a couple of places around the lounge.
Serve myself $150 cognac?  Don't mind if I do

Summary

Best JAL Lounge in the system. Completely separate business and relaxing sections separated by the food service area. A lounge I don't think I could get tired of staying in. This has me looking for more Haneda flights now, regardless of the pain of transferring.
