CONCLUSION

First, I thought that this lounge has a much brighter atmosphere compared to the First Class Lounge because of the bright colors of the sofas and chairs. During my visit, there were not too many people yet although I presume that this lounge could get pretty crowded. The usual smoking room is there which means that it is an essential part of the Japanese lounges. The food buffet is located upstairs at the first class lounge so one can dine there and enjoy the drinks here if they want to. Overall, a very nice lounge.
