Chubu - An Airport on an Artificial Island in Japan

Artificial islands are becoming common everywhere. Many countries are creating artificial islands on the sea and using those islands for various important purposes. Chubu Centrair International Airport is one of the earliest artificial islands in Japan. Also known as Central Japan International Airport, this airport on an artificial island is located in Ise Bay in Tokoname, Central Japan.

Chubu is Japan’s third off-shore airport, after Nagasaki Airport and Kansai International Airport. It is also the second airport on an artificial island. Chubu Centrair International Airport is Japan's 8th busiest airport. The construction of this artificial island started in August 2000 and was opened in February 2005.

The artificial island itself was shaped like the rounded letter “D” so that sea currents inside the bay will flow freely. Its shores were partially constructed with natural rocks and sloped to aid sea life forms to set up colonies.
