3,Spotting spots
(I introduce the spots you can go to there with walk within 30 minutes or public transportation.)

No,1 The observation deck of the Domestic Terminal Building

The observation deck of domestic terminal building is closed now. It's not clear if it will be opened in the near future.

No,2 The park("Air Front Oasis") near runway34 and W-1 taxiway

There are some spotting spot near Runway34 and W-1 taxiway. This park("Air Front Oasis") is s one of the spots. We can shoot the airplanes on the W-1 taxiway and approaching to Runway34. If you want to shoot the photos out of fenses,I suggest you to take the stepladder.

And There is a pedestrian overpass near Air Front Oasis. We can shoot the airplanes approaching to Runway34. But the airplanes on the W-1 taxiway are difficult to shoot unless you have the long lens(More than 300mm).

It takes about 25 minutes from International Terminal to Air Front Oasisby walk. But if you use Meitetsu Bus which connect Nagoya Airport and Kasugai Station(JR Chuo Line) via Ajiyoshi Station(Meitetsu Komaki Line),you can access there easily. This bus runs every 20 or 30 minutes. You get off at Kita-Ajiyoshi bus stop,and you walk the direction to airport about 5 minutes.

And we can shoot the international airplanes in the southern apron of International Terminal Building too.
