The airport boasts three terminals. Terminal 1 is dedicated to domestic carrier Japan Airlines and has been named ‘Big Bird since it first opened in 1993 due to its shape from the air, which uncannily resembles a giant bird in flight with wings outstretched. Diehard shoppers will delight in the terminal’s enormous five-story shopping centre, which features famous Japanese department stores such as Takashimaya, Mitsukoshi and Wako.
If you get exhausted after walking around all these shops, head up to the rooftop observation deck on the fifth floor, which offers some great views of the airport and some relative peace and quiet for anyone needing to chill out from the hustle and bustle below.
Terminal 2 is a much newer facility, having opened in 2004, and is dominated by another domestic carrier, All Nippon Airways. It also features yet another five-floor shopping mall, but this time with a swanky rooftop restaurant perched on top. Many of the stores feature luxury Western fashion brands appealing to the well-heeled Japanese shopper such as Cartier, Omega, Ferragamo and Dunhill.
However, we prefer the eccentric Tokyo’s Tokyo gift shop, which has only recently opened on the third floor. The store features a wonderfully eclectic product mix, ranging from make-it-yourself jewellery kits, flip flops and robot toys to useful travel books on Japan, vintage model aircraft and even funky chopsticks.
Another interesting place to visit is Sembikiya on the ground floor, which has a famous sister shop in downtown Tokyo. It sells an amazing array of beautifully packaged imported fruit. Expect prices to be steep, but the presentation and range on offer are superb.
