Hello guys!!

I'm going to Tokyo and Sapporo in February and I would like to know some good spotting points for nice shots.

I will use a lens with a focal length of 70-300.

Thank you in advance for your help!!

Best Regards.

Arkady, if you just would like to spot as many planes as possible, "Sakuranoyama Park" seems suite to your purpose in Narita.

You can overlook the end of A-runway and planes lining up 16R during the south wind operation.

Another choice; The observation deck in Terminal 1 is also recommended as you do not have to worry about the wind direction. You may shoot the shot like this when Sun goes down.(can see mt.Fuji?)

Thank you for your help!

I reviewed the place for photos on the site

http://www2s.biglobe.ne.jp/ito-nori/spot/spot_nrt3.html

I have one more question. This photo shot on the west side the airport roughly opposite the north wing of Terminal 1, as I understand it.

What are the conditions for taking pictures of planes on the ground there? Is it possible to take pictures through the fence? Or is there a need a little ladder?

Best Regards

Arkady, the place you remarked is a very good place for taking those rotation photos on Rwy34L and there is no fence in front of us so you do not need a ladder unless you want to earn higher eye point.

However, the way to reach there is very difficult to describe as we must go through the bush and park the car in safe area. There is no public parking around and security is very strict around Narita because of its history.

If you really wish to reach there, the attached photo might be a clue for you.

You need a car and trekking shoes ;)

Yumihiko, thanks again.

Yes, it is about this place, I wrote in my previous post.

And yes, I read yesterday about the complicated history of the construction of Narita Airport. It was very interesting and informative.

Thanks for the warning about a very strict security service at Narita Airport. In many airports Russian security service is also very, sometimes too, strict and vigilant. But these guys are just doing their job, is not it?

I'll be at Narita a little over two days and you're right, good trekking shoes I need :)

Good luck to you!

Yes, those guys are just doing their job so there is no problem unless you enter the restricted area or bring something looks like a weapon ;p

When you reach the place around, take a watch at another spotters' behavior to see where to park and where to enter the aisle among woods. That must be the most effective and safe way to get there.

Good luck!

If I understand correctly, the pedestrian part of the route should look something like this? If so, a preferable route (route blue or yellow)?

Thank you.

You are almost correct.

Yellow route is easier to walk, but riot squad cars are always parking at the entrance.

Take blue one instead as in the map you can see a car parking on the grass.

Don't forget those routes are briefly properties of NAA or farmers, please behave yourself and be cooperative to local landowners/airport patrols.

Happy spotting!
