I've flown to Singapore a number of times on Singapore Airlines and stopped at Narita coming and going for refueling, etc. Don't know if they take passengers only on the LAX to Narita leg. Seems like all of my fellow business class passengers and I always fly on to Singapore. But from Singapore, many deplaned in Japan.
