Access from Takamatsu Airport
To reach Takamatsu city, flights from Tokyo/Haneda (HND) (12/day) and Seoul/Incheon (ICN) (3/week) are available. From Shanghai/Pudong (PVG) airport, regular chartered flights (2/week) are served by china-sss.com [Takamatsu Airport (TAK)]. However, if you use an international flight, please take care of currency exchange. TAK does not have money exchange services.
Notice: If you make a transit at Tokyo, HND is much more convenient than Narita airport (NRT), because no direct flights between NRT and TAK are operated. If you arrive at NRT from abroad, you should take a bus to move to HND.
