Hatsune Miku Airport? The name has a chance at becoming reality, thanks to a list of new names proposed for Sapporo City’s small airport.

Most travel to Sapporo tends to be done through the much larger New Chitose airport, as it is capable of landing and takeoff of much larger aircraft. But residents of Hokkaido are familiar with Sapporo’s own airport, currently named Okadama Airport. There are plans to expand the airport to accommodate larger aircraft, which would allow more direct travel to the popular city. This plan for expansion also brought along the idea of renaming the airport to better represent the city.

“Hello, where will you be traveling today?”
“Hatsune Miku Airport”
←Has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?

“Hatsune Miku Airport” is one of 10 different names currently on the table for consideration. It would make a nice nod of recognition towards Crypton Future Media, the creators of Hatsune Miku, which was founded and currently still operates in Sapporo City.

Other names on the list for consideration by Sapporo City are “Sapport”, “Snow Air”, “Sapporo Yuki Matsuri Airport”, and “Sapporo Clock Airport” (after Sapporo’s famous clock tower building).
