Arriving at Kansai International Airport (KIX) then heading to Kobe, or staying in Kobe and heading out to the airport? If you're visiting Japan as a temporary visitor, save some money with this handy one-way ticket that allows you to take the Haruka airport liner limited express to Shin-Osaka, then transfer to a station of your choice in Kobe.
The Haruka, also known as the Kansai Airport Limited Express is a convenient and comfortable limited express train that directly links Kansai International Airport (KIX) with major stations in west Japan's Kansai region: Tennoji, Shin-Osaka, and Kyoto. From Kansai-Airport Station, it takes approximately 35 minutes to Tennoji, 50 minutes to Shin-Osaka, and 1 hour and 20 minutes to Kyoto. Currently, the Haruka runs 60 rides (30 round-trips) a day. Not only is this handy, special one-way pass for foreign visitors to Japan cheaper than booking the Haruka at regular price, but also, it is a bundle that gives the ticket holder access to the Haruka, plus transportation to Kobe via local, rapid, or special rapid train. (Since the Haruka does not stop directly at Kobe, a transfer at Shin-Osaka is required.) This special ticket grants the holder both time and cost savings, so book now for a smooth, hassle-free ride between Kansai International Airport and Kobe!
