Shizuoka Prefecture is in the center of Japan and visitors can easily reach Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya area by Shinkansen or car on express highways.
Mt. Fuji Shizuoka Airport was opened in June 2009 and is managed by Shizuoka Prefecture which has a 8,200 ft. runway with 8 parking spots which operate for 14.5 hours long, between 22:30~13:00 UTC.
It is much easier for international general aviation to obtain operational permits and clearance for CIQ because there is limited regular flight traffic compared to other major metropolitan airports.
