A number of Japanese airports are using their baggage carousels as art displays, which companies are also capitalizing on for innovative advertising. Each airport tends to showcase pieces that relate to its region, such as the Toyama Kitokito Airport which has a sushi statue evoking the area’s clean waters.
RocketNews24 reports that that airports use the displays to entertain passengers while they wait for their luggage. Asahikawa Airport, located in the snowy lands of Hokkaido, features a statue of seal and her pup which advertises the local zoo.
Kagawa Prefecture’s Takamatsu Airport features udon art, as part of a campaign advertising the region’s delicious noodles. As Miyazaki is one of the country’s most productive agricultural prefectures, the airport shows off a number of food sculptures, including a large piece of beef.
