If you fly All Nippon Airway from Shanghai to DC, you will most likely get an overnight stay at ANA’s Crown Plaza Hotel in Narita.

We have stayed there twice and we like it.If you fly in early enough, you can take Crown Plaza’s shuttle to the city of Narita for a short tour. If your flight next day out is in the afternoon, you can take hotel’s morning shuttle to a small temple for a short retreat.

Dinner on ANA flight from Shanghai to Tokyo.

Since we fly coach, we didn’t get the free dinner at one of its three restaurants in the hotel but we did go to their breakfast buffet in the morning before boarding the bus to the airport.

Here was a sample of their breakfast buffet:

Miso soup with vegetables

It was about $15 per person.
