Introducing Japanese Culture

In fiscal 2016, 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.
During the Lunar New Year season this February, visitors to the airport will be greeted by wandering troupes performing the traditional Japanese Ryukyu dance from Okinawa, and by the special effects super hero, ULTRAMAN.
Visitors can also enjoy the culture of Japan with an Ikebana exhibition, performances of the Kabuki presentation, "Renjishi" (String of Lions), and practical workshops.
