  • Flight is delayed and I had time to kill time perspective to the deck. Unlike the departure floor of the second floor, so not too many people can relax.

  • To the people at the airport, usually a moteamashimasu time. So when a heartbeat, will go to the observation deck. Many flights of the Songshan Airport is not just around the corner in the flights of mind enraptured.

  • For the first time came almost 40 years Songshan Airport are available. How to kill time at the airport, if you eat beer and snacks here, had a good may. Pay lounge is located next to, and drink. General public use narrow and employee dining room SORA goes on the No. 1 end from this area. Katsu Curry at about 500 yen. Cheaper than other meal. Only from 11 am until 3 pm at short.

  • This is a messed up your favorite airport. Bullet train + limited express ' shiokaze ' journey is best, but is-was and when you want to arrive is still a plane. Recently, the effect of the peach? Osaka (Kansai) ← → Matsuyama was cheaper? So, I'm glad it is.
