We are dedicated to utilizing Haneda Airport as a venue to contribute to regional revitalization and give back to the local community.
The success of our Group hinges on maintaining good relations with local communities and business partners, including the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and especially our base in Ota Ward. Given that our operations are supported by frequent travel between regional cities and the Tokyo metropolitan area, we are committed to fully utilizing the potential of Haneda Airport’s location. Our efforts are geared toward fostering interactions with and promoting the attractions of local and regional communities.

Participating in the Operation of Haneda Innovation City
Haneda Innovation City (HICity), located adjacent to Haneda Airport, is a large-scale multipurpose complex with diverse applications. Occupying an approximately 5.9-hectare site with a total floor area exceeding 130,000 m2, it is operated by Haneda Mirai Development Co., Ltd. Our company is involved in the operation of the area in partnership with Ota Ward as part of a public-private project. The location of HICity, which is on the former site of Haneda Airport, holds much of Ota Ward’s history. Haneda Airport has always developed along with the local support of Ota Ward.
Moving forward, we intend to help fulfill the aspirations of Ota Ward through our contributions to HICity, striving to enhance the value of Haneda Airport along with the Haneda district.
