Christmas 2021 at Narita Airport

Christmas 2021 in Narita Airport

I visited Narita Airport again recently pre-Omicron and it was so much vibrant than before, with a new, cheerful Christmas motif to boot. Covid infections in Japan were near record lows, entry restrictions were scrapped and everyone was looking forward to a happy ending to a dreadful year.

And then Omicron happened.

Anyway, enjoy these cheerful Christmas-themed ornaments. It was fun while it lasted.

Lively Christmas designs greet travelers at Narita Airport on late November, before the Omicron variant of the coronavirus was first reported in South Africa.

“I hope things get back to normal soon.” For a while, things were getting back to normal.

The airport was brighter and had so much more people than before. Things were looking good–until they weren’t.
