It is actually very convenient to travel from Kobe to Kansai
International airport. I would recommend you stay in Kobe rather than
Osaka or Kyoto.
So Please let me tell you 3 easy ways to travel to Kansai International airport.
・It is fast (30min)
・There are no traffic jam
・In extreme weather conditions, the ferry company will use a bus to transfer you to the airport
・There is a free car park service until you return from your trip.
・Discounts are available for West Members Card holders.
・There is a chance of suffering sea-sickness.
・You will only be informed of service cancellations on the day
・You need to take a bus from Kansai airport ferry terminal to the airport terminal.
・If you have a return ticket, you have to use it within 30 days of purchase.
I have used the ferry several times, and it has always arrived on time.
However, the last time was a slightly rough ride.
* At the moment they have a promotion for foreigners. You can purchase a one- way ticket for 500 Yen.(Feb/2020)
・From Sannomiya, the bus take you directly to the airport
・They rarely cancel their services
・You might get caught in a traffic jam
I have used the bus several times before and they have always arrived on time. However, I once missed a flight due to late service, but I think it was my fault for booking a later service.
3.Shared Taxi (MK taxi)
・They will pick you up directly from your home
・Easy to book by phone or internet
・A little bit expensive compare to other services.
・Because they use a mini-bus, it can be a little tight.
