They are due to extend this runway next year, right? I assume they are extending from the other end because they still haven't purchased the farm thats in the way/

Ah the famous Runway "B" at the town of Narita! The three Japanese farming family refuse to relinquish the land for development and in Japan it is rather difficult to seize land even by the government! A fantastic photo showing the how development must go on while old traditions and land rights are protected.

It's fascinating the lengths that airport authorities went to in order to avoid this house.
They should have made sure the farmers would sell, prior to beginning construction of the airport.

The largest problem is intervention of violent leftist organizations. A number of people are killed during this conflict. So, the government can do nothing. The history of Narita Airport is not cool at all. Im glad if you know this reality.

I want to mention a bit. The government used their force at the beginnings of the construction. But they were too assertive, and their act resulted in the intervention of the organizations. But now, the organizations has quite weakened. Therefore please come to Narita Airport without fear. The reason that the goverment do nothing is to avoid remembering the bitter past. Thank you for reading very much.
