Tokyo / Narita Filter: Is there a restaurant in T1 where I work on a weekday afternoon? I have to wait for someone arriving on a flight that arrives after mine. Recommendations for a restaurant in Terminal 1 (landside) where I can work for 3 hours, preferably with free wifi? Thanks

Here's a link to a terminal guide at Narita.

In terminal 1 there appears to be a lot of options for what you need. One thing I'll note is that they have Dayrooms and Showers on level 3. I had a 6 hour layover in Korea and I would have killed for a shower after a 16 hour flight.

There are two coffee bars in Terminal 1, including a Starbucks.

There is wi-fi throughout the airport, so you can have a shower, set up at Starbucks and then hook up to the internet and get a couple of things done before you meet your friend.

Are you checking baggage? If so will they hold it for you at customs?

There's an excellent sushi restaurant outside of security in T1 at Narita. I'm sure you could sit there and work.

Thanks Ruthless Bunny & Kololo. When I was last at Narita in April the Wifi was not airport-wide (like Hong Kong) and coverage in public areas was spotty. And the Starbucks in the basement of T1 doesn't fit the bill.

Last time I was in Narita, WiFi cost money.

Turns out that there are 2 pay-in lounges on the landside at Narita

Landside - the Lounge is located on the 5th Floor of the central building, midway between the North Wing and the South Wing. Opening Hours: 07:00 - 21:00 daily.

Landside - enter the main building (the center building between the north&south Check-in Bldgs) from 4th Floor (Departure Floor) & take center escalator up to 5th Floor. Turn left and proceed straight ahead for approx. 10 meters. Signboard indicates the entrance to the Lounge. Opening Hours: 07:00 - 21:00 daily.
