Shimojishima Airport (下地島空港 Shimojishima Kūkō, (IATA: SHI, ICAO: RORS)) is located on the island of Shimojishima in Miyakojima, Okinawa Prefecture, Japan.

The prefecture operates the airport, which is classified as a third class airport.

On July 22, 1994 Japan Transocean Air suspended flights.

As of 2005, the airport was in use as a training facility for Japan Airlines and All Nippon Airways. The long runway makes the facility well-suited for "touch-and-go landing" practice maneuvers.
