IGR (Puerto Iguazu, Argentina) and IGU (Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil) are just 16km apart. And there is also AGT (Ciudad del Este, Paraguay) again in another country, 39km resp. 49km from the other two.

KIX (Osaka Kansai) and UKB (Kobe) are around 12nm apart, so a bit more than the mentioned 10nm, but still this is interesting, as both are located in the same bay area on artificial islands. There is also no historical reason for this vicinity, KIX was opened 1994, Kobe 2006, so both are relatively new. In fact, many locals protested against building Kobe airport and instead favored a better public transportation system to KIX and ITM. To my opinion, it is true, that all of those airports have a quite inefficient access to the surrounding cities, it can take quite a long time to get from either airport to the city centers of Kobe or Osaka (and even longer if you want to go for example to Kyoto, which is also served by mentioned airports). Kobe airport is actually closer to Osaka city, than Kansai airport is.

When landing at XFW towards the southwest you see HAM below you. XFW is not a commercial airport, but still sees quite some traffic from Airbus plus the 2 daily shuttles to and from Toulouse.
In Toulouse there is also another airfield close to TLS (forgot the name), but I never saw any trafric there.
