Haneda Airport

Haneda Airport (Tokyo International Airport) handles almost all domestic flights while Narita handles almost all international flights. However, in recent years, international service from Haneda has expanded and had some international flights such as flights to Seoul, Shanghai and Hong Kong.

Actually, a new international terminal will open in Haneda Airport on October 21. Air Canada, Air France, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Hawaiian Airlines, Thai Airways International and Singapore Airlines are expected to go into service by the end of January, 2011.

Air Asia, Asia's largest LCC (Low-Cost Carrier), will operate three flights a week between Haneda Airport and Kuala Lumpur starting from December 9th. It was also announced that Air Asia will charge just 5,000 yen ($59) for a one-way flight between Tokyo and Kuala Lumpur. What a price!

Haneda Airport is close to the metropolitan area and you could take advantage of the convenience value.

SUMO

I went to see Grand Sumo September Tournament at the Kokugikan in Ryogoku, Tokyo.
That was my first experience with the view of a sumo match.

Tokyo Sky Tree that is under construction is hiding behind the Kokugikan.

sumo22.jpg
As you know, sumo is Japan's national sport, but what surprised me most was that Kokugikan was filled with ‘international atmosphere’ … about half of the spectators are people from overseas and about half of the sumo wrestlers in top division are from foreign countries.

sumo15.jpg
Information in English are helpful to tourists from abroad.

sumo40.jpg
Yokozuna Hakuho won … 56-match winning streak.

If you are interested in sumo, please go to http://www.sumo.or.jp/eng/index.html
Every year we have 6 Grand Sumo Tournaments.
January Grand Sumo Tournament : at Tokyo (Kokugikan)
March Grand Sumo Tournament : at Osaka (Osaka Prefectural Gymnasium)
May Grand Sumo Tournament : at Tokyo (Kokugikan)
July Grand Sumo Tournament : at Nagoya (Aichi Prefectural Gymnasium)
September Grand Sumo Tournament : at Tokyo (Kokugikan)
November Grand Sumo Tournament : at Fukuoka (Fukuoka Kokusai Center)


Sumo world has lost credibility from some scandals … who is going to boost sumo's popularity?

SUNSET


Summer is over and I feel the cool fall breeze at dusk.
Sky at sunset makes me feel a little bit sentimental remembering summer memories.
