Text description provided by the architects. Narita International Airport Terminal 3 is exclusively for LCC (low-cost carriers).  

Precisely so, we focused on creating a completely "low-cost airport" with the architecture and design. The budget for constructing this terminal was approximately half of the usual amount.

To cut costs, we opted not to install the typical moving walkways or illuminated signs.

Instead, to offer an exciting walking experience that is easy on the feet, we implemented running tracks used for track and field, and added signage for user-friendly guidance.

The key to the architecture and design is "more than 2 into 1." Consolidating two or more functionalities into one in pursuit of economic reasonability.

In short, treasuring designs "with a twist without spending a lot of money."

It would be our great honor if Narita International Airport Terminal 3 is frequently used and forever loved by economically savvy travelers.

When the time arrives for 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, we look forward to seeing people from all around the world having fun walking on these blue tracks.
