We don’t usually see or encourage running at the airport but travelling shouldn’t be boring.

The newly opened Narita International Airport Terminal 3 seems to be otherwise. The terminal was built for half the usual cost of a traditional airport with the pursuit of economic reasonability in mind. The Japanese creative lab – PARTY focused on creating a low cost and interesting terminal by replacing the typical moving walkways and illuminated signs with running tracks used for track and field, and added signage for user-friendly guidance. The concept offers an exciting walking experience that is easy on the feet for travellers.

The terminal is ready for the 2020 Olympics which is to be hosted in Tokyo. This airport is set to welcome athletes and elite runners from around the globe who could warm up with a fun running on these blue tracks.
