Toyama Kitokito Airport is the lobby to the Hokuriku region.
Toyama Kitokito Airport was opened with a 1,200m runway on August 20, 1963. It's located along the Jinzu River running through the center of Toyama Prefecture.
Later the runway was expanded to 2,000m for jets and opened on March 18, 1984.
Toyama was the first prefecture to use a regional dialect for its airport's nickname with the hope of introducing its attractions such as fresh seafood to the world.
Fish such as yellowtail from Toyama Bay are the most delicious in winter.The airport has some restaurants that serve Toyama's fresh specialty food. Enjoy them before you leave Toyama.
