On June 4-6th, we made a great event for the 1st anniversary of Mt. Fuji Shizuoka Airport. Anyone who has ever come to Shizuoka using this Airport? Though it is not so big as NRT or KIX, actually merely a local airport, it has international flights to Seoul and Shanghai.
As you know, hundreds of problems and troubles follow against the construction of airport and we were no exception. But what with one thing and another, we finally accomplished to open the airport on June 4th, 2009.
The fact is that we’ve been, or are being so desperate for customers to come in or go out through this airport with a big smile. Far from “stable” yet but it will be someday, and it must be!!
If you have any opportunity to come in this airport, please be sure to drop by the Information Center on the ground floor. You can find it very easily after seeing this picture, right? Just in front of the arrival lobby, the first thing you see when you get out of the gate, maybe＾＾； They have many guidebooks for visitors from abroad especially in English, Chinese or Korean. Get them as many as you can to save time and money!
In the weekend, the airport gets flooded with people. Some are to get on the flight and others are with their friends or families to see the airplanes taking off or landing. The brief description in the building is that the check-in counter, the arrival lobby for domestic and international, the international departure lobby and the information center are on the ground floor, the domestic departure lobby, a large giftshop, the exhibition room of local information around the airport and “Omotenashi Corner” on the second, and an eating place and observation deck on the third.
You’ve got to visit Omotenashi Corner to taste the real green tea of Shizuoka!! Free of charge, of course. They serve local green tea and kindly explain the distinction of Shizuoka green tea and its histories. For those who don’t understand Japanese, they have good brochures written in English, Chinese and Korean.
