Japan’s $20 Billion Airport Island



Three miles off the coast of Japan sits a gargantuan monument to human ingenuity and ambition. The size of two and a half thousand football fields, it incorporates the world’s longest building and took an estimated 10,000 workers ten million man-hours to build.

Kansai airport typically processes 920 flights and more than 30 million passengers a year. Not bad, when you consider it’s already sinking below the choppy waters of the bay of Osaka.

  1. There need to be clarity. There are two island connected together for Kansai international airport. The first island was completed in 1998 the expansion island with second runway was completed in 2007. If you Google images on Kansai International Airport, the older ones will show one island and newer ones show two. When Typhoon Jebi hit Osaka. The first island was flooded while second island was not. I believe the first island is sinking and not the second one, they learned from the problems of the first island.

  2. You asked "what do I think of this video". I think too much of the vision has absolutely nothing to do with the new Kansai airport. eg; showing a naval fleet on maneuvers when the narrator is talking about ships transporting foundation rocks, is poor reporting. Too many other glaring errors to mention. Have you considered selling vehicle extended warrantee insurance for a living?

  3. 'it incorporates the worlds tallest building'. No it does not! You could say 'It could incorporate the Burj Khalifa on its side' or something like that. Cmon dude.

  4. I really wish the infographic scenes like the sinking island were labelled, its obviously not the airport island but still looks interesting to watch

  5. Less wealthy Countries could consider a SOLID 'mega freighter' Design of several square kilometers for cargo stopovers. The deck then functions as a runway and the hold below as storage for further distribution. And even for permanent residence. Surrounded by a tsunami-resistant WALL .

    Sincerely YOURS,

    LUV YOU !
