The airport which serves Nagoya and the central Japan region is completely built on an artificial island. It is the 2nd airport built on an artificial island. The first one being in Osaka (slowly sinking, don't think this one is though).
It was built for the 2005 Expo at Aichi Prefecture.
Today was the "Chinatown Festival" so I decided to check it out. There was a walking tour run by volunteers which cost $5 per person and the most interesting thing is that they bring you inside to see the Chinese Associations.
All pictures can be view at full resolution, click and enjoy!
It is located on the 2nd floor of the Chinese Cultural Centre Museum building, and almost not advertised outside at all. Its VERY small, only ONE room. I don't even think a lot of locals know that it exists. The museum commemorates the Chinese people who volunteered to fight for Canada in World War II despite the fact that they were denied citizenship by the Canadian government.
This is a blog that was first started when I went on student exchange to Tokyo University of Foreign Studies in Japan in 2005-06. After coming home and graduating from the University of British Columbia I decided to keep it going because it presented me with an opportunity to share the pictures I took in my adventures.
