I was advised by Swissotel to take the Nankai Railway Airport Express Train from the Airport to the hotel upon my arrival. If I buy JR Pass, is the train ride from KIX to Swissotel also included?

Hi there,

The JR Pass is not valid on the Nankai Express. You can however use the JR rapid from KIX to Shin-Imamiya and transfer there to JR-Namba.

It involves a bit more work but is free with the JR Pass :)

will JR Namba likewise pass through Swissotel like Nankai Express?
