Robotics Notes - Old Tanegashima Airport

Another location shown all the time in Robotics;Notes is the old Tanegashima Airport where the Robot Research Club builds the first GunBuild robot. The old Tanegashima Airport should not be confused with New Tanegashima Airport of course.

The old terminal building. This shot is shown throughout the series and in the first ED.

This airport was closed in 2006 when New Tanegashima Airport opened.

Some of the grounds seems to be used for storing various building materials now.

The hotel across the road from the airport seems to have been demolished sometime in 2014.

This was the hotel where Frau moved to in the anime.

There's still this hangar building at the airport runway though, but you need to go to the opposite side of the airport to get pictures of the front. I've marked a path from the location of the airport terminal to where you can get pictures of the hangar in the map below.

There's no hand crank on the side of the hangar.

The floodlights are closer to the hangar in real life.
