  • View from the observation deck of the Songshan Airport or small airport for large aircraft can't see, but see many small planes, is a fun place.

  • Sunset looks beautiful. Plane and the sight of the setting sun and sambar, no longer would never get bored. To wait for a plane is recommended.

  • To Matsuyama go to still air is desirable not to mention. This is the airport is about 20 minutes from airport to City Center, so relatively useful. The observation deck is located in the airport, but souvenir shops are not so kind that many in unison, not there is some local specialty restaurants but not recommended. I think it is so close to the city airport and later the city choice is pretty spread out better.

  • Souvenir shops and restaurants and the latency of an airplane can be enjoyed. Unfortunately nowhere available electrical outlet within the restricted area.

  • 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.
