Nagoya Chubu Centrair International Airport (NGO)
A large, modern facility that opened as recently as 2005 on reclaimed land in the adjacent sea, Nagoya Chubu Centrair International Airport (NGO) replaced Nagoya Airport as the chief international facility serving the Chubu region of central Japan. The airport is located around 32 km / 20 miles south-west of central Nagoya and serves flights to a long list of Japanese cities, as well as to other Asian countries, the US and Europe.
Chubu Centrair Airport operates a single four-storey terminal, which is well laid out and easy to navigate, and is currently being extended at the cost of almost $20 million, with a second runway being added. Nagoya Centrair Airport is situated in the Aichi Prefecture and within the relatively small city of Tokoname, and those passengers destined for the Tsu in Mie Prefecture will find fast boats waiting nearby.
Airport buses and trains connect Chubu Centrair to Nagoya and other destinations in the Chubu region, with the latter option being the fastest. Hotel shuttles are available to all passengers, while taxis running to a large number of set destinations can be found at Access Plaza and offer a good way to reach downtown (Sakae), the Port of Nagoya and the upmarket neighbourhood of Nishiki. Further afield, Chubu Centrair Airport is close to the cities of Gifu, Hikone, Kyoto and Osaka, all of which are easy to reach.
About Nagoya Tourism
As Japan's fourth-biggest city, Nagoya is a bustling, modern metropolis that epitomises Japanese urban living. For tourists, there's no shortage of things to do and besides simply wandering around and exploring this fascinating city for oneself, there are obvious attractions that are generally considered part of the tourist agenda.
Chubu Centrair Airport (NGO) lies in the Chuba region and on the Central Honhshu Island. Must-sees nearby include Nagoya Castle, Atsuta Shrine, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Tokugawa Art Museum and Nittaiji Temple.
