Nagoya "Centrair" Airport by DerJon
Japan has always been a dream of mine. Sadly, this particular visit was short and trapped in an airport, not once, but twice! If you are trying to save a bit of cash while on the go, Nagoya is the airport for you. See, Narita charges you a special service fee for using their airport. On a round trip flight, this comes to close to US$100! So, we chose Nagoya for our trip to Guam. On the way, we had a four hour layover. We should have gone through customs and then come back through security to kill the time. That’s how boring the international terminal is! Killng four hours there almost killed us. It was early evening and only one set of duty-free was open and the Japanese/American Fusion Restaurant thing was open. We did manage to get some Yen coins in change after buying some small items from the Duty Free Shop. On the way back, we only had 1.5 hours. That wasn’t too bad, and everything was open.
The reason the trip is worth it, however, is that the view coming into the airport (while landing) was incredible. We had a clear day and saw many mountains, small villages, back roads, and then finally Nagoya itself. What a view!over 2 years ago
