Oita (or Ōita) Airport is a very small and sympathetic one in Japan. The reason I happened to be in such a small place to begin with was that I wanted to visit some of the several onsens (hot spirings) in Beppu – a city famous for them. Firstly, neither Japan Airlines nor Ana have a lounge at Oita, but there is one for credit card holders that also offers a paid access for as low as ¥ 1100 per person. The lounge is called Lounge Kunisaki. Let’s see what Kunisaki is made of!
There isn’t much to say – the airport is very small. The lounge is located on the right hand side after the security check. In front of the gate 2 it is – it seemed to be the gate for ANA flights anyways.
Decoration and amenities
The lounge is very small and it can basically be seen entirely in one picture. The seats are not comfortable, but comfort does not seem to be the greatest strength of domestic lounges in Japan anyways.
You can charge your devices, access the ethernet internet, print, scan and copy. In addition, there are phone booths for private calls. There are some Japanese newspapers for those who speak the language.
There is no food in this lounge. You can drink juices, sodas, water, coffee and tea for free. Beers and highballs cost ¥300 per can.
Kunisaki lounge is a sad little lounge. I only entered to write this post, and I figured that around 7 euro investment is not too much. Oita airport is small so it’s very unlikely you need to wait long for your flight anyways given that the airport bus has its time synchronised with flight departure times.
