Tokyo Haneda Airport is Great

I’ve been using Tokyo’s Haneda Airport instead of Narita as often as possible. It’s easy to do so domestically in Japan, but until recently has been harder to pull off for international flights. That’s changing. Haneda has been a legitimate international airport for a long while, but it seems that recently every month brings new destinations to it from a variety of airlines. It’s a pleasure to travel through the airport close to Tokyo rather than the one in the middle of nowhere.

Also, the decorations and amenities inside Haneda — especially the international terminal — are superb. Its Edo Market includes some of the best airport dining I’ve experienced, a far cry from the food court booths that dot most airports. For instance, Katsusen Tonkatsu (fried pork cutlets) is excellent.

Below is a video about Cathay Pacific’s new lounge at Haneda. Notice its elegance. This is not unusual at Haneda. Consider choosing it over Narita on your next trip to Tokyo. Here’s the video:
