Design toilets opened in Terminal 1 on 25 March.
Ahead of the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games, as well as to accommodate more visitors in the future, Narita Airport is refurbishing all toilets within the terminal and incorporating universal design concepts, including audio guidance, emergency assistance lights and L-shaped handrails.
The recently re-opened toilets on the 1st floor in the North Wing of Terminal 1 have been remodeled with a new floral theme. In addition to walls featuring a blizzard of falling cherry blossom petals depicted using mosaic tiles, the use of fragrances and green ornaments such as bonsai and single-flower vases make the interior a pleasant space for visitors.
Since 2016, we have been working to refurbish all of Narita Airport’s 146 public toilets in turn, a process that is now complete following the renewal of these toilets.
