information about KIX airport to Sannomiya.


We recommend that the participants take a direct flight to Kansai International Airport (KIX).


If there is no convenient flight to KIX, you could arrive in the Tokyo area first and connect to KIX airport or Osaka International Airport (ITM) or take the bullet train (JR Shinkansen) from Tokyo station or Shinagawa station to Shin-Kobe station.

Please note there are two international airports in the Tokyo area, one is HANEDA Tokyo International Airport (HND), which is close to central Tokyo and the other is NARITA International Airport (NRT), which is located much further from Tokyo.

If you transit flights at Tokyo area airports, we advise that you use the same airport. We don’t recommend a transfer from NRT airport to HND airport (or vice versa), as more than 3 hours and 30 minutes is needed for the transit.

For example:

Recommended: NYC-HND/HND-ITM or NYC – NRT/NRT – KIX

Not recommended: NYC-NRT/HND-ITM  or NYC – HND/NRT– KIX
