The 'Tottori Prefecture' is one Japanese airport that has come up with some clever boredom-busters to entertain people who are waiting to pick up their bags at baggage claim.
It is quite reasonable to expect to see suitcase after suitcase circling the baggage carousel, but to break up the monotony of this, the Tottori Prefecture Airport is sending mascots, sculpted pieces of sushi and other odd characters down the conveyers. The eclectic mix of fruit, personified foods and sea creatures also includes a message written in Japanese.
These are a great way to give newcomers a taste of Japanese culture and celebrate people returning home. As well, the delicious sushi dishes will definitely tempt hungry travellers to seek out some of this local cuisine as soon as they leave the airports.
