Flights resumed at Sendai Airport after military troops worked through the night to pile sandbags around the 250-kilogram (550-pound) bomb, which was uncovered during construction near a runway two days earlier.
The airport, a regional hub for northeastern Japan, was closed all day Tuesday, with 92 flights cancelled.
