Part of Haneda Int'l Terminal Observation Deck Fence Replaced with Wire to Improve View

A construction project wrapped up on April 13 to install a partially wire safety fence and improve the view on the observation deck atop the International Terminal at Haneda Airport in Ohta Ward, Tokyo.

Tokyo International Air Terminal Corporation (TIAT), the company that administers and operates the building, had the construction project started up in February as part of an effort to improve services for general visitors to the airport. The safety fence in the central part of the 250-meter-long open-air observation deck on the terminal's fifth floor had the old lattice fenced replaced with horizontal wires. This provides better views of the aircraft parking spaces and runways between the domestic terminals and control towers and makes it easier to keep the fence out of the frame when photographing airplanes.

Haneda also has the horizontal wire safety fence on its domestic terminal observation decks, making the airport a popular destination among aviation enthusiasts and photographers.

The deck is open all day.
