Introducing Japanese Culture

In fiscal 2015, we will continue to hold new and popular events to introduce some of the unique aspects of Japanese culture to customers from overseas to deepen their understanding of Japan and foster their desire to visit again.
September at Narita Airport will feature a wandering shamisen performer in the terminals playing traditional Japanese and foreign songs in the beautiful sounds of this Japanese instrument. Concerts will also be performed in the terminals, providing soothing relaxation at the airport, and ever-popular workshops will also be available. Narita Airport welcomes you with events that enable you to see, hear and experience the culture of Japan first hand.
