Osaka international airport (Itami airport)(Osaka pref.)

スポンサーリンク

Hey, guys!

Today, I am going to share the spot for taking photograph of airplane at landing and taking off so close. The planes go through over your head.

That dramatic view and experience attract not only photographers but families and couples.

The spot is by the Senri river. (It is called “Senrigawa dote” in Japan, it’s quite famous.)

FYI, “Itami sky park” which is close to the Senri river is the best spot for taking photograph of running plane from the side.

Hey, guys! Today, I am going to introduce the "Itami skypark". General thing about the Itami skypark is writte...

 

1.The date that I visited

I actually have visited this place several times in summer, autumn and winter.

(Many planes are landing and taking off often, but of course the chance for take the best shot is limited in a day. that’s the reason I have visited this place some times.)

But, even it is not your first time to see the air plane so close, it’s fun!! and those planes are so cool!! 🙂

 

2.How to access

By train

The closest station is Sone station on the Hankyu takarazuka line.

it takes 20 minutes on foot from the station to the photographing spot.

 

By car

There are some parking lots near the Senri river. The closest one is 5minutes away from the view point. The parking lot costs you 600 JPY for 24 hours maximum(200JPY / 40 minutes).
[information at 2019.20th.Jan.]

Many people come this place to “see” the plane not to “take photos”, so the parking lots are not always busy. Even when the parking lot is full, you could probably park after 10minutes await.)

 

Parking lot : 1 Chome-12 Katsube, Toyonaka-shi, Ōsaka-fu 561-0894

 

 

 

 

 

3.Location hunting

First of all, there are two runways in Osaka international airport. Here, I name the wide one as RunwayA, narrow one as RunwayB.

Surely, the big plane land on the RunwayA and taking off from the RunwaA. Small plane and propeller planes use the RunwayB.

About RunwayA, planes start to land from the point which is close to the river(getting lower altitude early), so you will feel the plane bigger and bigger.

About RunwayB, planes start to land from the point which is a little bit far from the river, so the planes keep high altitude when they go thorough over your head.

So most of people stand right back of the RunwayA.

 

 

This river has two bank along the river (① and ② in the drawing above).

You can taken photo from both bank.

 

I actually have never been to the bank ②,

most of people who take pics from the bank ② bring a tall stepladder and tripod.

There are fences around the airport, so from the bank ①, you have to avoid the fences.(The location will be limited to avoid the fence.)

  1. I’ve been browsing online greater than three hours lately, but I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s beautiful price sufficient for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

  2. Keep working ,remarkable job!
