Transport - Travelling from Kansai Airport (KIX) to Nagoya JR station.

My family (2 adults and 1 child) will need to make our way to Nagoya JR station (to check into Marriott Hotel) in Dec 2014. I will not be buying a JR pass.

I know there are a couple of ways to get to Nagoya from KIX. Using the Kintetsu pass or travelling to Shin-Osaka and then take a shinkansen to Nagoya... Are there other ways besides these 2?

  • I am deciding between the convenience of travelling and the cost of travelling (I am thinking to get Taqbin to send my luggages to Nagoya so that i can travel light when i make my way to Nagoya)
  • If I travel using the Kintetsu pass wide ... I need to change train at Namba (Osaka) right?

Thanks & Rgds


Hi there,

Those are pretty much the two option which I would use. You would indeed have to transfer at Namba if you decide to travel by Kintetsu. Personally I would go for a Haruka - Shinkansen trip as it is more comfortable but it is also the more expansive option.

Good luck with your travels!
