This 4 part 15 minute drama is a spin-off of Fukada Kyoko's 2012 FujiTV autumn drama "TOKYO Airport ~ Tokyo Kuukou Kansei Hoanbu" and is a stark contrast from the setting in the latter where there are 500 flights per day at Haneda Airport. In this spin-off drama, Koike Eiko plays an air traffic controller at a small airport in Tokunoshima, an island near Kagoshima Prefecture where there are only 4 flights per day. As such, the drama focuses on how the air traffic controllers there battle with boredom rather than the busy lives led by their Tokyo counterparts.
Cast & Credits
This is a light comedy to just kick back, relax and enjoy. Plus it is just 15 minute per episode and that too just 4 episodes so you definitely won't be wasting your time too much. But some of the references will be lost on you if you haven't watched TOKYO AIRPORT before.
