Visitors staying at the newly opened Tokyo Haneda International Airport hotel can enjoy airplane views and views of Mount Fuji from a natural spring hot spring bath.

Opened last December, Hotel Villa Fontaine Premier & Grand Haneda Airport has 1,717 rooms and is directly connected to Terminal 3 of Haneda International Airport. Along with its indoor spa equipped with an indoor and outdoor natural hot spring, it offers all-suites, fitness and restaurants.

What makes it unique, according to its builders, is the Haneda Airport Garden section, a multipurpose commercial facility and bus terminal built by Japanese real estate company Sumitomo Realty Group.

Called a "city where people gather and live," the complex has about 74 shops spread over two floors where you can find duty-free food and souvenirs from all over Japan.

In Japan, tourism was stopped due to the Covid 19 pandemic, but after the reopening, the number of visitors has increased.

In March, the number of visitors rose to a record high of about 1.82 million, up from 1.48 million in February, according to data from the Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO).

Tokyo has also announced plans to welcome up to 60 million visitors to the country by 2030. The ambitious goal comes as the government expects visitor numbers to continue to grow ahead of upcoming international events such as Expo 25 in Osaka in 2025.

And as domestic tourism recovers, Haneda, which has been crowned the world's most punctual mega-airport, hopes to follow in those footsteps.

The builders hope that their new hotel and airport complex will come to represent a microcosm of Japan's regional crafts and flavors for travelers and visitors looking for some rest and relaxation.

Currently, those wishing to leave the airport can take a trip from the bus terminal on one of 30 different routes connecting visitors to destinations such as Osaka, Sendai and Hakuba, a ski resort town in Nagano Prefecture.

Builders want to expand those roads to larger areas of Japan as part of broader plans to help revitalize the country's regions, according to Katsuyuki Tou, general manager of Haneda Airport Park.

Next, builders want to incorporate immersive elements into the visitor experience.

"We aim to help revitalize tourism in Japan, with Haneda Airport Garden acting as a starting and ending point for visitors."

Haneda Airport Garden is directly connected by train to the Keihin Electric Express Airport Rail Line and is a minute's walk from Tokyo Monorail Haneda Airport Terminal 3 Station.

It is also directly connected from the second floor of Terminal 3 of Haneda Airport./ CNA.al
