Fukue Airport (福江空港, Fukue Kūkō) (IATA: FUJ, ICAO: RJFE), is a third class airport located 1.7 NM (3.1 km; 2.0 mi) southwest[2] of Gotō, Nagasaki Prefecture, off the western coast of Kyūshū, Japan. The airport also serves the city of Fukue. It is also known as Gotō-Fukue Airport (五島福江空港, Gotō Fukue Kūkō) and, since 2014,[3] also styled Gotō Tsubaki Airport (五島つばき空港).[4]. Currently the terminal building's exterior displays both names.[5] Tsubaki means camellia, and is a notable reference on Fukue Island which is famed for producing camellia oil[6] and is home to two ancient camellia trees each over 300 years old[7][8] that have been declared 'national monuments'[9]
