Airport: RJTH - Hachijojima Airport, Japan

 

This airport serves the island of the same name which is a large tourist destination among the Japanese for surfing, diving, and hiking.  The island boasts a “still active” volcano and its warm waters have made the island a prime breeding ground for humpback whales, which can be routinely spotted and viewed.  The island is home to some unique flora including a bioluminescent mushroom which the locals call hato-no-hi (pigeon fire).  The islands fairly temperate weather year round has likened the island to being the “Hawaii of Japan”….. 

 

During World War II the airport and island were of strategic value to the Japanese Navy.  The airport was a ferry point for naval fighters flying from the mainland to aircraft carriers further out in the Pacific, and there was a base established on the island for “suicide submarines” that protected the southern ocean flank of Japan from potential naval landings.

 

The airport is served today by daily flights to Tokyo’s Haneda Airport through All Nippon Airways.  The airport has a medium sized runway at 6,560 ft.
