    Today walking on a small street of Gion(Kyoto,JP) found this:

    An Amex lounge inside an old Temple!
    Entrance:

    I used a platinum card since my wife didn't have her gold on her...We were seated in a tatami room,offered Japanese teas and some candies...After they took us around the temple(rooms, original pictures and 2 really nice gardens).
    Kudos to amex:)

    Wow, that is amazing. We'll have to check that out next time we're in Kyoto!

    Thanks. I was wondering if someone put an Amex sticker on a door and swipes your Amex card when you enter the "lounge" to verify your right to use it. "Swipe", in more than one way, that is.

    Too bad I'm going to Tokyo next week, not Kyoto. I guess I'll try my luck another time. Anyway, thanks a lot for sharing this!
