How to get to Kyoto from Kansai international airport


There are some transportation to get to Kyoto from KIX

There are some transportation to get to kyoto from Kansai Internatoinal Airport, however it is quite a long way, taxi costs too expensive (Approx. JPY 26,660 ~ JPY 31,160). Therefore taking a bus or a train would be a better choice. You can use JR train or Nankai train or Bus, Nankai train goes to Osaka and not directly goes to Kyoto then I would recommend JR or Bus.

No e-tickets available

You may not believe, however still e-ticket is really limited as a purchase method for a train  /bus in Japan, therefore you cannot buy your ticket online before your arrival to Japan. You need to buy a ticket at the ticket office in the airport station or the bus ticket office.

Recommended routes directly arrive to Kyoto with no transfer

How much does it cost?

Time:Approx. 1 hr. 15 min. / Cost: Approx. JPY 2,850 (one way) *Child (6-12 year-old) JPY 1,420
