  1. Haneda airport only recently started hosting international flights to a variety of destinations, and is still less known than Narita. It is relatively small and has a more relaxed atmosphere than many of the airports I have been to. Yet it has many good shops and effectively showcases Japanese culture. It has become close to the top of my list of favorite airports. Living 20 minutes away by bus also influences my opinion. :-)
