    Aichi Pref. Tokonameshi Centrair 1-chome
    An airport in Tokoname City, Aichi Prefecture which opened in 2005 and which serves as the gateway to the skies in the Chubu area. Both international and domestic flights operate here, making transfers convenient. The airport’s restaurants and shops open early and close late to serve passengers taking early morning and late night flights. The Meihinkan shop sells an abundant variety of Nagoya products with a focus on goods perfect for souvenirs. You can also find restaurants offering a variety of cuisine genres as well as Nagoya specialties. Or you can enjoy a bath while watching the planes take off and land in Centrair’s own Fu no Yu bathhouse. With so many shops and facilities on offer, Chubu Centrair is almost like a theme park.

    This is well set up for people to get a snack or last minute shopping. Only issue is due to crowds it can be hard to find a seat if not in a restaurant. Highly recommend for food before a flight.

Aichi Areas

Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
