Direct access from Kansai International Airport to your hotel

There is an airport shuttle service between Kansai Airport and Kyoto. It is sort of a shared taxi (in a van) and brings you directly to your hotel. The price is 3500 yen, so it is slightly cheaper than coming by train and changing to a taxi at Kyoto Station. But it takes slightly longer.

If you are interested in this service please look at the following URL and make a reservation yourself.
