What's the purpose of that writing parallel to the runway? I think it says 'Chubu Centrair'.

Great picture of Japan's 2nd 'man-made island airport' with the first being Kansai and the third one Kobe. The Japanese seem to have a 'make work' programme that MUST always see them spend their budget or the following year their budget will be reduced. This I know from living in Japan and seeing first hand. I guess "use it or lose it" has great rewards like this gem in Japan.

I believe this is an artificial island and the terminal was designed to compensate for its sinking ground.

Beautiful airport. I first thought it was an aircraft carrier. And the thing with the writing: Kansai has a similar one with "Kansai International" it's just something like a greetings-sign.

It does say Chubu Centrair; seems to a Japanese thing to identify their airports from above, maybe a holdover from the past? Also, it is indeed a man-made island, as space in Japan is very limited.

Water, lots of water everywhere. Poor landmark reference on final approach if on visual.
