Mount Fuji Shizuoka Airport is a small airport that was opened in June 2009 to serve the area between Nagoya's Central Japan Airport and Tokyo's Haneda Airport. The airport is located between Shizuoka Prefecture's two main cities, Hamamatsu and Shizuoka, and is named after the prefecture's most famous landmark, Mount Fuji, which is located 80 kilometers away.
Shizuoka Airport is conveniently located near the expressway, while the Tokaido Shinkansen passes directly below it. However, there are currently no plans to build a new station for easy train access to the airport. Instead, access by public transportation is provided by buses (see details below).
ANA and Fuji Dream Airlines, a new airline based in Shizuoka, are operating flights to multiple domestic and nearby Asian destinations, as well as a few charter flights.
Mount Fuji Shizuoka Airport is accessible by bus from Shizuoka (55 minutes, 1000 yen). Buses also connect the airport with Shimada Station, the closest station along the JR Tokaido Line (25 minutes, 500 yen). Passengers using Fuji Dream Airlines can utilize their free shuttle bus which connects the airport with Kakegawa Station, the closest station along the Tokaido Shinkansen.
