    I’m somewhat amazed by the sheer number of LCC’s flying around Japan these days. I lived in Japan for 3 years back in the 90s and the change is simply astounding! 15-17 flights a day just between FUK and NGO!

    You know, everybody and their brother crows about how great the mass transit/train system is in Japan. Shinkansen this, monorail that, yada, yada, yada. But the existence of these LCC’s must be saying something? I know the rail fares are high, but the fares are a function of economics, and those trains are full.

    We’ve got this push for hyperloop type transportation, high speed trains, etc here, but Japan, with an already exemplary system, must be telling us something.
