Prior to departing from Hong Kong International Airport, redeem your voucher straight from the airport and have your Kansai Rail Pass ready for your trips in Japan. Once you land at Kansai International Aiport, take the inclusive Kansai-Airport Express train that heads west. In about 1 hour 10 minutes, you will arrive in Osaka, known for its architecture, nightlife and hearty street food. Stay on the train for another 10 minutes and you will arrive in Kyoto, renowned for its classical Buddhist temples, as well as gardens, imperial palaces, Shinto shrines and traditional wooden houses. Travel to and from between other major cities such as Kobe, Nara, Himeji, Wakayama, Shiga, Tsuruga and Iga-Ueno all with the same pass. This is definitely the easiest and fastest way to explore Kansai region!
