Q; Which Airport should I go to?

A; No airport in Kyoto. 

  1. Kansai International Airport is the international airport close to Kyoto.
  2. Chubu Centrair International Airport Nagoya is also convenient. 
  3. Osaka Itami Airport is the closest but limited to domestic flights.
    If you enter into Japan at Tokyo Narita Airport or Tokyo Haneda Airport, you can fly to Osaka Itami Airport. 
    But I would rather recommend to use Shinkansen bullet train from Tokyo to Kyoto.


Q; From the Airport, how to get to Kyoto Station? 


  1. Kansai Airport.  You can use JR Express “Haruka” train from Kansail Airport to Kyoto without no transfer. In addition, you can use a limousine bus to Kyoto from the airport.
  2. Chubu Centrair Airport Nagoya. You can take a train from the airport to Nagoya Station, and take a Shinkansen bullet train to Kyoto. It will take about an hour.
  3. Osaka Itami Airport. You can take a limousine bus to Kyoto.


Q: From Kyoto Station to the conference venue "Kyoto Kyoiku Bunka Center".


  1. From Kyoto Station to the conference venue or your hotel, taxi is the easiest way. If you download an application “Japan Taxi”, it is quite similar maneuverablity to Uber application. Uber may be able to use in Kyoto, but taxi called by Uber is more expensive and less frequent than "Japan Taxi”. No private Uber drivers in Japan exist.
  2. By subway, you take a subway at Kyoto Station and get off at Marutamachi Station, you will reach the venue after 5 minutes on foot.
  3. By train, you take a JR Nara Line and get off the next station, Tofukuji Station, and change train of Keihan Line and get off at Jingu-Marutamachi Station. You will reach at the venue within 3 minutes on foot.
  4. Bus is easy. Please take a bus No. 206 at D2 bus-stop "Kyoto Station Mae", and get off at "Kumano-Jinja Mae". It will take about 40minutes. The conference venue is located just around the corner. But it is very clouded all the day. If you have luggage, you should not take bus. It may have a chance of traffic jam, too.
