UPDATE 1: Welcome to Hinawa International Airport
(the island airport)
Terminal 2 was completed in 2003, 4 years after the completion of the airport island. The airport is served by the Green and Red lines of the Hinawa transit system. A monorail is planned for the airport to help solve overcrowding in the subway lines next year. Highway 22 runs parallel to the terminal and intersects the city's important Metropolitan Expressway near the Kubo District. It makes many stops and intersections to nearby highways. The front of the area features a small plaza and a large parking lot and parking garage to the left.
747s parked at Terminal 2; the elevated road that runs through the terminal can also been seen here.

In the eastern section of the island, a breakwater runs parallel to the runway to protect the edges from erosion.
