Regarding the Oct. 16 article “Can Narita, Haneda (airports) live in harmony?”: Clearly, Tokyo needs a 24-hour, international hub airport; it does not have one now. Japanese and foreign nationals alike in Japan must pay heavy fees to use Narita Airport, which is far from Tokyo and has many problems. Haneda was the original Tokyo airport and has not been shown the respect it deserves.

I wonder if the airport owners realize that the reason people do not want to use other local airports in Japan is that they have become too expensive. We’re thinking about this all the wrong way. If the Japanese are to be strong together, then they should work together. That will bring prosperity to us all.
