Narita plans budget carrier terminal
Japan Times - Apr 6, 2012



Narita International Airport Corp. plans to turn an existing building into a low-cost international terminal for budget airlines by March 2015 to attract such carriers, company sources said Thursday.

'Scariest ever' haunted house opens
Japan Times - Apr 6, 2012

A theme park attraction billed as the "scariest ever" haunted house debuted in Kyoto last month, with actors playing ghosts and filmmaking expertise used to turn an old samurai residence into a spine-chilling experience. The attraction, part of Toei Kyoto Studio Park, reopened after a 14-year run following a major renovation that cost \150 million. (Japan Times)

Japan tickets cheaper than Jeju trips
Korea Times - Apr 5, 2012

(This appears to be a great time for the budget traveler to visit Japan.)

Lee Jung-yoon, 26, bought a round-trip plane ticket to Fukuoka for 99,000 won, which she found surprising because it was cheaper than a ticket to Jeju Island. Normally, the price of airfare to the Japanese city is at around 200,000 won. But with Japan struggling to fully restore its power as a travel destination following its devastating earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crisis, budget travelers are no longer priced out.

Swiss treks across Japan to boot radiation fears
Yomiuri - Apr 5, 2012

A Swiss man who walked from Hokkaido to Kagoshima Prefecture on foot in five months to dispel fears of radiation in the country among people overseas is receiving worldwide attention. Thomas Kohler, 44, worked at a travel agency in Zurich before the accident at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant. He was in charge of arranging trips to Japan, but was forced to quit after many customers canceled trips to Japan because they believed the entire nation had become contaminated. (Yomiuri)

Japan's low-cost Peach Aviation may ignite Asia airline price war
China Post - Apr 3, 2012

Korea's low-cost airlines are girding for fierce competition in the skies as Japan's Peach Aviation is racing to launch a new route to Seoul, seeking a slice of a budget travel boom in Asia's fourth largest economy. With the number of cost-conscious tourists surging, budget carriers are increasingly steering abroad in a bid to offset high jet oil prices and prop up their balance sheets. Osaka-based Peach is the latest in a string of no-frills airlines venturing into Korea's aviation market. (China Post)

Yonaguni: Japan's most westerly isle

(A world of its own: Spectacular coastal scenery (above) and "major roads" like this (below) may come as a culture shock to big-city visitors, though Yonaguni's doughty hanazake — being hand-labeled)

A colossal, dark-skinned man rides along the sidewalk on a motorbike: no helmet, two small children aboard - a vision of life in the laconic Tropics. There are times here too on Yonaguni, the westernmost land mass in Okinawa Prefecture, when you see a curvaceous island woman in a vivid, flower-patterned dress, and you think of Paul Gauguin and the Tahitian women he painted.

Tokyo's newest and biggest visitor attraction, the 634-meter-high Tokyo Sky Tree in Sumida Ward, will open to the public on May 22. And if 11th-hour contract negotiations bear fruit, visitors to the Sky Tree may soon have the opportunity to plummet 430 meters (over 1,400 feet) toward terra firma, in what is claimed to be the world's highest commercial bungee jump.

Cherry blossoms set to lift national mood
Japan Times - Mar 31, 2012

The nation was too stunned last year to partake in the national ritual of "hanami" cherry blossom viewing after the March 11 disasters left more than 18,000 dead or missing, but now people are in the mood. The first cherry tree, or "sakura," blossomed in Kochi Prefecture last week and the light pink glitter will soon spread across the archipelago, giving the nation a much-needed uplift. (Japan Times)
