Taking the Kansai-Airport Limousine Bus リムジンバス

This route is suitable for those planning to stop in Osaka first for a couple of days before heading to Kobe.
Stations: Kansai Airport → Osaka → Sannomiya (Kobe’s central station)
Cost: Varies depending which line you take or transport passes used


Route 3: Car Rental (driving)

Route 4: Bay Shuttle (ferry) – Best Direct Route


You’ll be surprised to know that Kobe has it’s own airport too (only for domestic flights) lol, and they have an existing ferry shuttle going back and forth between KIX and UKB
Travel Duration: 30-40 mins
Cost: JP¥1,850 (one way) -but there’s an ongoing promotion for tourists, it’s only JP¥1,000 till 31st March 2018
