Urgent - whats quicker to get to Kansai or Itami airport?

Hi,

Deciding on if to fly out from Kansai or Itami airport to get to Sapporo. Flight costs are roughly the same and timings for both flights are around 1415. Please let me know what airport is quicker/easier to get to from Hiroshima/Miyajima Island.

Thanks

Lizzy

Per Google Maps, travel time is slightly less (just under 3 hours) via shinkansen to Itami, which requires a bus transfer from Shin-Osaka Station. Kansai is just over 3 hours (about 20 minutes longer). Because the distance to Kansai is significantly greater (with greater average travel speed), the ticket cost is significantly higher. So Itami seems to be the better choice.

There is also a direct flight on ANA from Hiroshima airport 8:15 am every day you can buy for 10,800 yen on the ANA Experience Japan fare.

There are also other flights that require connections so price would be more.

Hiroshima airport thought is a fair distance from Hiroshima so you have to allow sufficient bus time, but it certainly will be cheaper than taking train to Osaka area.
