We all knew the list of Amex Centurion Lounge locations would keep growing. What we didn’t know is that the lounge network is heading to Japan for its next opening in Asia.

The American Express Centurion Lounge network just announced plans to open a lounge at Tokyo Haneda Airport (HND) in 2025. The exact details are slim, but this is worth getting excited about.

Here’s what we know so far.

Amex Centurion Lounge at Tokyo Haneda — The Details

The official press release says that the lounge will be in Tokyo Haneda Terminal 3, located on the fourth floor after passport control. It won’t be accessible to those departing from other terminals. This lounge will be on the smaller side, at 7,500 square feet, and its capacity will be 122 guests.

From the renderings, we also know the Amex Centurion Lounge in Tokyo will have an outdoor space. It looks like this should be an open-air area with opportunities for planespotting.

As with other international Centurion Lounge locations, guest access rules may be friendlier than lounges in the U.S., though we’ll have to wait for exact details here. And as with other Centurion Lounges, you should have access if you hold U.S. or overseas versions of The Platinum Card® from American Express, The Business Platinum Card® from American Express, the Centurion® Card from American Express, or the Business Centurion® Card from American Express.

Hot Tip:

Amex changed guest rules for U.S. cardholders in 2023, though overseas lounges typically allow complimentary guests. Each lounge sets its own guest rules, so check the details before visiting a Centurion Lounge outside the U.S. if you plan to bring guests.

The lounge is set to open in 2025. We’ll provide a more specific opening date when it becomes available.

Amex is known for incorporating local elements into its lounges, so expect elements of Japanese culture, such as local foods and music, local art, and more. Amex is promising to “deliver the charm of Japan and the high-quality service unique to American Express to inbound customers, whose numbers are expected to continue to increase. We will continue to hone the travel experience value that American Express can provide and pioneer the market in the premium travel category in the card industry,” according to Yasuhiro Sudo, president and representative director of American Express Japan.

Final Thoughts

It will be interesting to see how the new Amex Centurion Lounge in Tokyo works in practice. Lounge overcrowding and waiting lists have been key complaints about Centurion Locations in the U.S., and this lounge will be on the smaller side. That said, Japan may not be experiencing the explosion of premium cardholders we’re seeing in the U.S.

Time will tell, but it’s worth keeping our fingers crossed for a great lounge experience in Tokyo starting next year.
