NZ to Japan



Picton to Blenheim Airport
Because I would travel to Christchurch from Blenheim Airport by air, I got on an intercity coach to Christchurch from Picton. I took a ride for the first part only and got off at the I-SITE in Blenheim. The I-SITE was quite as small as the I-SITE in Picton, just as I thought. I asked a staff of the I-SITE to call a taxi for me and got on it to the airport. I had a little trouble with the transfer to the airport. If I'd had stayed on the intercity coach to Christchurch, I would have arrived at Christchurch after 6 hours later. I wonder if I should have stayed on the coarch...?

Blenheim Airport
Was located about 5km away from the I-SITE. It was a really local airport.

There was a tiny cafe and a waiting lounge and there were only two check-in counters. It was smaller than Naiper Airport! There was nothing to fill the time and it was a little bit hard to kill time there....

Baggage claim!
Whenever I see a sight like this, it is interesting and a curious sight for me. What a peaceful scene! I will never see those sights again in Japan. This is one of my most memorable sights of New Zealand.

Blenheim to Christchurch
It took only 50 minutes to get to Christchurch Airport from Blenheim. The aircraft was small just as I had thought. I was afraid of flying in such a small plane.
