Kansai International Airport (IATA Code: KIX):
There are some international flights from overseas to Kansai Airport. There are several ways to get to the conference venue via public transportation, and here we give a rather simple example:
1) take JR line to Osaka*2 Station;
2) take subway Midosuji Line to Senri-Chuo*3 Stations; and
3) take Osaka Monorail and exit at Handai-Byoin-Mae*1 Station.
By train (Shinkansen):
You can get to Shin-Osaka Station from Tokyo Station by Tokaido Shinkansen operated by JR (Japan Railway). The cost will be about 14,000 JPY, which may vary depending on travel conditions. 'Nozomi' is the fastest type and takes about 2.5 hours. 'Hikari' stops at more stations than 'Nozomi' does and takes about 3 hours. From Shin-Osaka*4 Station, you can take subway Midosuji Line to Senri-Chuo*3, and then take Osaka Monorail to exit at Handai-Byoin-Mae*1 Station.
You can get to Osaka International Airport (Itami Airport) from Haneda Airport. From Osaka International Airport, you can take Osaka Monorail and exit at Handai-Byoin-Mae*1 Station.
The JAPAN RAIL PASS is the most economical way to travel throughout Japan by rail.
