Tottori Airport's Remodel Adds More Detective Conan Touches
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Tottori Airport has the official nickname Tottori Sand Dunes Conan Airport, which is a tribute to Tottori native and Detective Conan manga creator Gosho Aoyama. The airport was recently remodeled, and it reopened on July 28 with some special Detective Conan touches.
The arrival lobby features a large display with a handwritten message by Aoyama. A recreation of the franchise's Café Poirot with a Tōru Amuro statue is also on display in a separate exhibit space. The airport's tenant space has four new shops, including a Conan Tanteisha (Conan Detective Agency) shop. The second wave of a mystery-solving rally and a separate stamp rally in the airport's international terminal are available.
The airport is collaborating with Gosho Aoyama Manga Factory on a campaign that will run until August 31. The first 1,000 people who get a stamp from Conan Tanteisha and also visit Gosho Aoyama Manga Factory will receive an exclusive coaster. In addition, the first 1,000 people to spend at least 2,000 yen (about US$18) at each shop will receive special Detective Conan merchandise.
