Japan takes pop culture seriously, so you should not be surprised to see an airport named after a popular manga character, and that airport comes to Microsoft Flight Simulator.
Tottori Airport, also known as Tottori Dunes Conan Airport, owes its name to Tottori’s famous and beautiful dunes and the equally popular detective Conan manga and anime.
The association with the half-liter and beloved junior detective comes from the fact that his creator, mangaka Gosho Aoyama, was born in Tottori.
The airport itself is full of Detective Conan images and branding, and it even hosts a dedicated store with plenty of merchandise.
As you can see in the picture above (with permission from the local media TottoriNoto), Conan himself also appears on the front of the main terminal, with his name written in red inside the logo of the airport.
As mentioned above, third-party co-developer Gate15Scenery is working on creating the airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
At the moment we do not know when the release will be, but you can check out an early ongoing photo below.
This is absolutely great for those who love to fly in Japan, as the Tottori’s Chugoku region is especially lovely, and after the first world update not much has been released in terms of local nature.
