  • It is located on the 3rd floor of the Songshan Airport observation deck. Because fewer planes to and from local airports, so is the plane up close, you can see it is recommended. We recommend that you wait may be waiting on the second floor is on the 3rd floor, seat at the table, so in the 3rd floor.

  • 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.
