Nihon vs Nippon[edit]

I previously had consensus that the English article should not stated that one pronunciation is more formal than the other. As the article is currently semiprotected, I request that somebody please remove the offending portion.

Airports of Japan[edit]

This article says that Japan has 173 airports, without any source supporting it. However, the article List of airports in Japan and Economy of Japan both says that Japan has 98 airports, with a source supporting it. Is it just me, or is this a mistake? --Horai 551 12:42, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Tokyo + Chiba[edit]

Actually, Tokyo's a city not a region in Japan. And also the Chiba Prefecture was there with Tokyo along with Haneda and Narita airports in the city. --Allen talk 22:04, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Issue likely stems from the differences between Greater Tokyo Area, Tokyo Metropolis, and Tokyo. EvergreenFir (talk) Please {{re}} 23:13, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
