Journey of REPUBLIC OF TURKEY
|ISTANBUL VISIT （１）|
participated in a tour of Tabix Tokyo named
"Turkey special tour eight days" from June 4.
I knew that only six people participated in
this tour at a counter of Narita. I heard 22
people when I proposed it by telephone. I
just watched on the television that Istanbul
Airport raised black smoke and fire a little
before my departure. There was the claim
of esponsibility of the Kurd independent group,
too, and the visit of this time was untimely.
| The south wing of the first terminal
was just opened two days ago after an interval of 11 years for the redecorating
the terminal. New Tokyo International
Airport was crowded regardless of terrorism.
| The duty-free shops after the departure
has increased considerably. The airport
became the private company from the
public corporation. The company must
make money not only airport fee but also
I took on Turkish Airlines for the first
time. It was not Boeing but Airbus A340.
| It takes about 12 and half hours by air
from Narita to Istanbul in Turkey.
We welcomed by Mr.Cerhan Senturk
a Turkish guide at the Ataturk airport
. Six people of the participation join
this time for the first time here.
Our bus run from the airport to Grand

continued to drive to Ayvalik and the hotel. It will be about 500 kilos’s driving today.
