What's the fastest way to travel from Kyoto to KIX international Airport? I have a JR pass. Can I catch the Shinkansen from Koyto station direct to KIX?

How can I tell the difference when I'm at the train stations between the JR local and the Shinkansen lines?

Hi there,

The fastest route is to use the Haruka Limited Express train. This is the fastest route and totally covered by the JR Pass.

There are no Shinkansen lines to KIX. You can find all lines, including the Shinkansen here:
