Nagoya’s original airport is in the north of the city is now known as Nagoya Airfield, but commonly known to many as Komaki Airport.
It is home to Fuji Dream Airways and has a military air base on the site.
The airport has a single runway.
The passenger terminal has an observation deck which is fine for watching movements, and logging aircraft at the military part of the airfield. You can also take photographs here.
The new Aichi Museum of Flight (https://aichi-mof.com/) recently opened to the south of the terminal. It is home to various historic aircraft, including a Mitsubishi Mu300 Diamond business jet, helicopters, and a NAMC YS-11.
This museum is worth visiting as it has a viewing area on top which is great for spotting and photographing aircraft on the runway and taxiway. The military part is not visible.
