The Airport Stamp Rally began at 83 airports across Japan on May 10.

The “Sora no Hi” (meaning “Sky Day”) Executive Committee, which is an organization of Japanese airlines, airports and aviation bureaus, is running the event for the general public to celebrate “100 Years of Flight” in Japan. During the event, those arriving at participating airports on commercial flights who collect three stamps from different airports on special application forms, which are placed at each airport, can apply by mail by sending the stamps and copies of their boarding tickets for the airports where they got the stamps. A condition is that one or more of the three stamps must be from one of 25 specially designated “outlying island airports.”

A hundred types of gifts associated with the theme of “100 Years of Flight” have been prepared for randomly selected winners. They include tickets for domestic return flights, model planes and souvenirs from each region of Japan. The first round lasts for boardings from May 10 to July 31 and the second round is from September 1 to December 16. Applications must be postmarked by August 31 for the first round and January 16, 2011 for the second round. Also, applicants must be residents of Japan.

Details such as participating airports and designated outlying island airports (including info on special applications forms and stamp rally counters), as well as a list of awards for winners, can be checked at the Sora no Hi website.
