Japanese Airports - Awesome!

Mon Feb 11, 2002 3:51 pm

Greetings all, from Fukuoka, Japan; what an airport! Like all Japanese airports, this one has a wonderful observation deck. I am now in the new international terminal, which offers a superb view of arriving and departing aircraft and as it is midway along the runway, it doesn not matter which end is in use. This morning, I flew up from Kagoshima, which also has a deck, although it was too early (and cold) to have a good look. Flew KOJ-FUK on a YS11, although could not take cockpit photo, as access not allowed - even after landing. Still, with facilities like these - I cannot say I am too upset! CA 777 (B2064) just arrived from PEK - nice!

It is the same in tokyo - Haneda and Narita (T1 is best) have superb facilities. I know Japan has a reputation for being quite expensive, but it is well worth a visit, particularly now with a weak yen. Perhaps wait a few months as ANA will be changing its livery shortly and you:ll be able to get all types in new and old c/s.

I agree with you that Japanese airports are excellent. I was very impressed with Narita - the layout, the restaurants, and the service.

I am a big fan of FUK's observation deck.
