Iwakuni Kintaikyo Airport
This clean, new airport was opened in December 2012.
Upon entering the terminal building, travelers have a view of the entire building and can see the compact structure is easy to understand and use.
In the building's center, a "light garden" atrium is bathed in natural light pouring in from outside. In addition, the front wall of the passenger waiting room is made completely of glass, letting people see the passenger jets waiting on the tarmac and immersing them more into air travel.
Passenger jets can be observed up close even on the observation deck! Why not take a commemorative photo with planes in the background?
The terminal building has a universal design that is accessible to all travelers.
