JAL "Sky Museum" Tops Tokyo Tourist Spot Rankings (News)
Tokyo, June 10 (Jiji Press)—Japan Airlines' hangar and exhibition areas open to the public on a reservation basis, collectively called Sky Museum, topped the rankings of popular tourist spots in Tokyo, the metropolitan government's Transportation Bureau has said.
The runner-up was 333-meter Tokyo Tower in Minato, followed by Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden in Shinjuku, according to the Tokyo 100 rankings decided in cooperation with the Japanese unit of TripAdvisor Inc.
JAL said Sky Museum, located at Tokyo International Airport at Haneda in Ōta, offers free guided tours to exhibition areas and a hangar and provides lectures on aircraft mechanisms and details of the Haneda airport, attracting some 120,000 visitors a year.
The airline conducts the Sky Museum tour four times a day. But encouraged by the survey result, it will boost this to five daily tours from July 22, JAL said.
The top 10 spots also included Tokyo Racecourse in Fuchū, Tokyo National Museum in Taitō, and the Chidorigafuchi moat in Chiyoda.[Copyright The Jiji Press, Ltd.]
