- The closest airport is ITM airport, which is almost domestic. So, there are two ways to get to Kyoto Station.1) Direct flight from your country to KIX airport and take a train for Kyoto Station (about 90 min).
2) Transit at NRT airport (Tokyo) and fly to ITM airport, then take a bus for Kyoto Station (about 60 min).
I guess route #2 is a little bit complicated for a foreign traveler, so I recommend route #1.
From Kyoto station to the hotel, I would recommend to take a taxi (about 15 min), which will cost less than 2,000 JPY.
