Japan: Nakayama comment on expansion of Narita Airport

id:takerunba comments on a statement [ja] by Japanese Minister of Construction and Transport Nariaki Nakayama in an interview with Sankei Shimbun, in which Nakayama criticized local residents obstructing the expansion of Narita airport for not having the spirit to sacrifice themselves for the public good. id:takerunba agrees with Nakayama, pointing out how behind Narita is compared with other international airports, and argues that it would actually be better to use Haneda airport instead since Haneda is much closer to downtown Tokyo.
