Onomichi Floating Port vs Onomichi Seaplane Base

The actual name of this facility transliterates directly from katakana as "Onomichi Floating Port", but this is a "Japanese English" turn of phrase that does not work well for native English speakers (since "port" by itself is used for nautical and not aeronautical purposes), so I've taken the liberty of translating this to Onomichi Seaplane Base per our usual listing convention elsewhere. The literal transliteration is included in keywords.

2022 Update

Unlike its twin to the east-southeast, this ultralight airport continues to thrive for now.

Dual-use facility

JMSDF Chichijima Airfield has both a seaplane ramp (ShinMaywa US-2 patrol flying boats) and a heliport.

Area being redeveloped. E-W runway already mostly destroyed in recent sat maps, N-S runway remains.

Gyrofield, you say?

Per this exceptional decade-long blog featuring WW2 Japanese installations (the link for this particular location is here https://airport1111.blog.ss-blog.jp/matsunami-airstrip but is in Japanese), this was the staging area for the use of Kayaba Ka-1 (reverse-engineered Kellett KD-1) observation autogyros which were used here primarily for submarine spotting.

Crisis averted!

I've repurposed this duplicate to cover a different airfield.

Transliteration notes

This is labeled as "Ogyokaidozoino Helipad" in Google Maps. This is extremely incorrect.

The adjacent road is actually "Osakana-kaido", NOT "Ogyo-kaido" (literally "fish road"), and the "zoino" is a misreading of "zoi no" meaning "along", and not part of the helipad's name. Basically, the Japanese is transliterated as "o-sakana-kaido zoi no heliport", or translated as "the heliport along Fish Road". Without the actual name, I'm using the name of the adjacent road (Osakana-kaido) which shouldn't be translated literally in this case.

Reply to @TIBC1: Thank you for the comment. I have merged the two airports, so this is now the correct entry.

RJBH now helicopter only.

All fixed-wing operations ceased here in 2013. Helicopters only since 2014. Now has alternate name of Hiroshima Heliport.

Picture of animebirder

First to comment on RJOA!

Now that Hiroshima-Nishi is closed to all but limited helicopter traffic, this is the closest airport to Hiroshima. Pretty nice back in 2005 last time I was here (on my 2017 and 2019 visits we took the Shinkansen instead).

It's in the mountains so you definitely don't want to overrun ...

I adore the airport, very clean, organize and quick service, everyone knows what they are doing, I am assisted politely and nicely by the immigration officer at the airport when I forgot to get re-entry visa because of busy schedule at work. I miss Japan, I love everything about Japan.

airport webcAM


I like watching naha airport webcam, but most of the time the cam is on the city which is boring and one cannot see anything except traffic. the aiport webcam is only for an hour or two which is very inconvenient for me, i like to see planes land and take off. Do you have intention of putting webcams at the aiport only covering both terminals.

Thank you

re: Name During WW2?

According to the Japanese-language Wikipedia article, this base was opened in 1942 for the Empire of Japan's Naval Air Corps, seized by US forces in 1945, and handed back over to the Japanese military in 1954 (where it later became the home of the JADF's "Blue Impulse" aerobatic team). There is no mention of what name the US might have used for the base during the occupation.

One of Northwest's Frequent Stopovers

I've been here several times going to and from the Philippines. Northwest likes to use it rather than Narita because of traffic and economic reasons. (Sometimes known by the alternative nickname of "Route 66) See some of my acerbic comments on inadequate southern California airports. When the Japanese don't have a good place for an airport, they make one ... in the US we wring our hands for years on end and often do nothing.

Also known as New Tokyo International

This is where I arrived to start my three years in Japan in September 1996. The airport had only the originak runway (the one in the lower partof the photo) then. the second, parallel runway had been slated to be built for nearly 20 years but delayed by farmers in the area who din't want to sell their land. At times the protests against airport expansion reached the point of people flying tethered balloons in the path of landing aircraft ... Japan is an "interesting" country to do large construction projects.

In addition to taking many flights in and out of Narita I had the opportunity to work "inside" Narita a number of times. My organization had a contracted "greeting" facility for US forces entering Japan in Terminal 1 which we had to move several times die to construction and it was a learning experience to see what goes on behind the normally closed doors to make an airport of this size actually operate.

My Home for Three Years

I was the communications planner/program manager at Yokota for the years 1996 through 1999. Among the neat aviation-related things I got to do were the installation and commissioning of the runway 18 ILS ... a ssytem we physically removed from Minot AFB Montana, shipped across the pacific and put back to good use at Yokota. Mnay civilian plots have been through Yokota as a significant part of its traffic is contract passenger and cargo flights and I recall a number of times when I was there that Northwest used it to land when weather gave them a problem at Narita
