How to get to Osaka by bus from Kansai International Airport (KIX) Terminal1

The limousine bus is the best way to get to Osaka Station from Kansai International Airport (KIX). I live in Osaka and often go abroad, and I always use the limousine bus. Because I don’t have to carry large luggage and can reach my destination just by riding on the bus. However, many people do not know how to take the limousine bus or how to get from the stop to the station. So, we will show you how to get to JR Osaka Station from KIX by bus.


Trains in Osaka are often crowded, so I recommend the limousine bus.
