Roundtrip with miles in First > Domestic Economy > any way to upgrade

Hi,

I booked a New York > Tokyo and Osaka > Tokyo > New York with miles. Very nice of ANA to add the ITM to Narita leg to us for free, but only economy .... not a big deal but I like lounge access etc. so id there any way of upgrading the ticket? A far as i found out it isn't possible in advance but x days before they start to sell you upgrades for a fixed price (think was around 10k yen?).

Thanks

Domestic award tickets are always in Y. On the day of departure, if any premium seats are left, you can buy an upgrade to premium class. If you are Star Alliance gold member, you will get lounge access based on that.

You can upgrade on the day of departure @10000yen and you can claim tax free because connecting international flight within 24 hours.
Also you can access domestic lounge just show your first class ticket.
They have special rule that if you have international first/business class ticket connecting to domestic , you can access lounge without any status.

but that rule only works international > domestic (not the other way around)?
