There are approximately 100 airports in Japan, both large and small. As an island nation with a long north-south axis, you will probably take a domestic flight when you visit a local city. At airports, there are stores that sell local specialties such as individually wrapped and boxed snacks, miscellaneous goods, and fresh food. There are also restaurants that serve traditional local cuisine. These are a sampling of what the region offers. New Chitose Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport, where international flights also arrive and depart, have hot spring facilities that you can use during your layover. Why not arrive at the airport early to explore before you leave?
