Like I mentioned in the South Centrair city post, the Centrair Airport has opened. Ahh I am really sorry for the Aichi area people, but I must say what a senseless, silly name it is. Then today I checked their site, and I have just found their character! ( of course we have a character for everything. that is our way.) They are pretty. But they seem to be really nice for a characters for new airconditioner or may be a new animal snack. Don't you think so? However they are characters for the International airport, yeah! Now I see the senseless is their concept, at least they are consistent.
Okay let me check their souvenirs. Surely they will have something special and I might like it!! Their English page is not good enough yet. So I will check out their Japanese site. In Japanese sweets, they have Toraya Uirou. Uirou is a special sweet from the Nagoya area; of course they should have in their shop. Hida is in Gifu pref next to Aichi, Shirakawa go is one of the places listed in the world heritage in Japan. When you go to Shirakawa, it will be convenient to use this Centrair airport. Then this Hida no Kuni has Gassho zukuri sweets.
The Head office of Toyota (this is the site of their big showcase) is in Aichi pref, so I heard i-chic will have some western sweets named "Chubu Toyota's adventure", they will be in the shape of Toyota cars. Since Tokyo Banana will sponsor this i-chic company, they will be nice sweets. When I find that sweet, I will update.
Anyway I should have said this first. The reason why the new airport has opened now is this Aichi expo 2005. There are many place to see, to enjoy to eat and not only in the expo. Please check it out.
