Centrair Airport in Nagoya | one of Japan’s Leading Airports

Home Japan Travel Guide Chubu Aichi Centrair Airport in Nagoya | one of Japan’s Leading Airports

Central Japan International Airport, or Centrair (airport code NGO), is located just outside Nagoya in Japan. It is Japan’s third most important international airport after Tokyo’s Narita Airport and Osaka’s Kansai Airport. It is also known as Chubu Airport. Constructed on a man-made island in the Bay of Ise, Centrair was opened in February 2005 in time for Expo 2005 Aichi. Taking over all international and most domestic air traffic from Nagoya’s Komaki Airport, it quickly became an important hub.


Overview and Transportation

Centrair is a large airport with all the usual facilities such as shops, restaurants, a post office, lounges, and a capsule hotel.

Taking you directly from the airport to Nagoya Station within an hour and a half, the public bus leaves every hour. The fastest and most convenient way, however, is taking the Sky Limited Express train which only takes 28 minutes to get to Nagoya Station. Taking a taxi to Nagoya Station from Centrair is quite expensive and will set you back around 150 USD.
