travel information for KAGI21 Symposium

♦ Getting to Kyoto from Kansai Airport

The easiest way to get to Kyoto from the Kansai airport is on the JR (Japan Railways) "Haruka" express train that runs between the airport and Kyoto. After you clear immigration and customs, you will come out on the first floor of the terminal. Take the escalators to the second floor and cross over to the train station (~100 m). There are two railway lines here, JR and Nankai. Go to the JR "midori window" which means "green window" to buy your ticket. At least one of the clerks will be able to speak English. The Haruka runs every 30 min and takes 90 min to Kyoto. The price is about 3400 yen. You can pay for your ticket with a credit card. There are reserved and unreserved seats. It is easier to buy a reserved seat and it is only a few hundred yen more. The clerk should tell you which car and which seat is written on your ticket. After you buy your ticket, cross over to the gates and put your ticket in the machine. Make sure to take your ticket again as you pass through. You will need to show it on the train and when you exit at Kyoto. The Haruka leaves from track 4. Kyoto is the last stop, so you don't have to worry about missing the station.

From Kyoto station, it is easiest to take a taxi to your hotel. The cost will be about 1500 yen. The taxi driver can probably understand the English name of the hotel, but to make sure, we suggest you show them the following Japanese. (Include attached graphics of Japanese names and addresses of hotels)
