great trip, but excited anyway!

Feb 11, 2019

Happy with online checkin on the way out, but coming back the system did not allow me to do it, nor to choose my seats, which I should be able to, given my One World membership status. I had to checkin at the airport and thus got a terrible seat.

Great flights

Providing water for those in economy would be a really nice touch rather than we bugging the air hostess for a thimble at a time! Also the seats in economy are unbelievably cramped

I found it difficult to get my boarding pass once checked in online. Just give me 2 tickets or a QR code.

Food was not very good

Flights to Osaka

Flying to Osaka brings you into Kansai International Airport (KIX) about twenty miles southwest of Osaka city. Regular direct flights connect Kansai International Airport with more than 60 destinations worldwide. If you’re taking a domestic flight to Osaka from other cities around Japan, there are routes into Kansai International Airport or Itami Airport, a little confusingly sometimes known as Osaka International Airport, which is located about ten miles to the north of the city.

You can fly to Kansai International Airport all year round from major UK airports, with a stop at one of a handful of cities including Paris, Amsterdam, Helsinki, Frankfurt or Istanbul. Alternatively, you may find that booking a flight to Tokyo or Hong Kong and then catching a connecting flight to Osaka could be a good option. If you choose to fly into Tokyo, you could make the connection to Osaka by train instead of plane. The high-speed Shinkansen – or bullet train as it is sometimes known – takes 2.5 hours to get from Tokyo to Shin-Osaka station in the north of Osaka city.

Transport to and from Your Osaka Flight

Public transport is a convenient and affordable choice for travelling into Osaka from both nearby airports. At Kansai International Airport, the railway station connects directly to the second floor of Terminal 1, while buses depart from the first floor. There’s a wide variety of transport options to suit different budgets, with prices scaling up for faster journey times and reserved tickets. The quickest trains can get you to Namba station in just over half an hour. Airport Limousine Buses can take you directly to Namba in 45 minutes and Osaka station in 60 minutes. If you choose to rent a car, Osaka is about 50 minutes’ drive from the airport.

Itami Airport is about 30 minutes by train from Umeda station, which is one of the city centre’s main hubs and a gateway to Osaka’s subway system. From Osaka Airport station, take the monorail one stop to Hotarugaike station, then it’s about 20 minutes south on the mainline Hankyu Takarazuka line to Umeda. You can also catch the bus from Itami Airport to major destinations around the city including Osaka/Umeda station, Shin-Osaka station and Namba station. The bus takes about 25 minutes in each case.

Why Fly to Osaka?

Osaka is a large laid-back city full of opportunities for shopping, sightseeing, eating out and having fun. Whether you’re visiting for a business trip or to explore the area on holiday, you’ll find a side of Osaka to suit you. It’s home to one of Japan’s top tourist attractions – Universal Studios Japan – where you can step into the magical world of the movies. You can also experience traditional Japanese culture at the city’s theatres or on a visit to a tranquil temple or shrine. Visit at the end of July to see Osaka’s biggest festival, Tenjin Matsuri, which dates back over 1,000 years. And, whenever you fly to Osaka, don’t forget to sample some delicious dishes in this city known as the food capital of Japan.
