Narita International Airport in Narita, Chiba Prefecture began banning smoking in all restaurants in Terminals 1 and 2 as of June 1.

As part of the airport’s measures to prevent second-hand smoke in the terminals’ public areas, smoking is banned in all establishments. Restaurants that already have completely partitioned smoking and non-smoking sections are exempt from the ban for now. At such establishments, where cigarette smoke is blocked off with walls reaching to the ceiling or sufficient smoke dispersal arrangements have been made, customers are allowed to smoke. These restaurants have signs indicating that they have separate sections for smoker and non-smokers.

Meanwhile, smoking is still allowed at the airport’s designated smoking areas. There are 18 such areas set up in Terminal 1 (9 public and 9 restricted) and 16 areas in Terminal 2 (7 public and 9 restricted).

Narita is the first airport in Japan to ban smoking in all restaurants.
