JAL Sakura loung

The JAL lounge curry. Quite spicy.
The JAL lounge always has nice bread.
On March 5 we flew to Lausanne, Switzerland, for a work meeting. We got tickets that gave us access to the JAL Sakura lounge at Narita airtport (we flew Sapporo-Tokyo-Frankfurt-Geneva and then took a train to Lausanne). The Narita lounge is very nice and has great food.

The chicken soup was great!
This time they had nice sausages.
Since we have to get up at 4 in the morning to catch the change over in Tokyo, I usually have breakfast in the lounge if I get to enter the lounge (which is not that common). They have nice bread, which is rare in Japan, and good Japanese curry. This time they also had nice sausages (also rare in Japan) and a great chicken soup!


No Japanese meal is complete without miso soup.


  1. Tycker inte du att dom har bra bröd i Japan? Jag ÄLSKAR brödet i Japan!! :-)

    1. Jag tycker japanskt bröd är gott, men det är inte riktigt som bröd. Det är antingen sött och känns mer som att äta kakor och bullar än att äta bröd, eller så är det så vitt och fluffigt att det inte smakar något alls. Så, gott men inte bröd :-)

  2. Ja, jag skulle sakna t.ex kavring om jag vistades länge i landet!! :-) Med svensk ost!! Men vi har INGET sånt "fluffigt" bröd här.. :-)
