Video review of a standard guest room at the Hilton Narita

Hey folks. For those of you who have been reading for a while, I have traditionally written my posts and linked to Youtube for any video content I provided. I still like the format of keeping the video and text/photo reviews distinct. However, I want to start hosting the video content directly on this site. As a result, over the next few weeks I am going to publish videos for which I have already provided the text information. I will provide a link to the original note, as well.

My favorite in the area are the first class and business class lounges from JAL. Those lounges both have great food and plenty of space. However, if what you need is a quiet place away from the crowds and perhaps some help with an American Airlines flight, the Admiral’s Club in Narita Terminal 2 presents a solid option.
