Kansai International Airport

Kyoto Japan Tourist Information and Travel Guide

Kansai International Airport (KIX) is one of Osaka's two large airports.  It is located south of downtown Osaka and is therefore further from Kyoto than the Osaka International Airport.

There is a very nice hotel in Izumisano called the Kansai Airport Washington Hotel. It is located close to Kansai Airport, provides a free airport shuttle service and has an excellent buffet restaurant.
