KansaiAirport → Nara ①Access by Train2

Use a local line!

From the airport, there are “Kansai Limited Express Haruka (JR)” and “Limited Express Rapi:t (Nankai Line)” that can be reached earlier than local lines by selecting seats.

But I do not recommend it.

Although both are more expensive than local lines, the time reduction is only about 10 to 15 minutes.

The merit of using the limited express is not so great.

It is a system that you can know the price in advance because it will be the flow of dispatching after getting an estimate.

Uber has a driver evaluation system, so they will drive you carefully!

The reason I didn’t choose is …

Taxis are more expensive!


Of course, there are taxis between “Airport ⇔ Nara”, but according to an estimate from Kansai Airport, the price is ¥28,280 / 90mins, which is higher than Uber.
