Midnight arrival to Kansai

Hi,

We will be arriving at Kansai International Airport at 12:55 AM, on Wed, 16 Jul (via UO688 from HKG).

We will be staying at either at Best Western Hotel Kansai Airport, located near Hineno Station.

According to the official the Kansai Airport website, there are night Airport Shuttle buses operated by Nankai Bus (www.nankaibus.jp/shinya/kanku/index.html). Unfortunately, the information is not available in English and I cannot read Japanese. I could get some basic understanding using Google Translation but not sure how accurate it is.

Can someone help me with finding this information:

1. Is there a shuttle bus from Kansai Airport around 1.30 AM ~ 2.00 AM to Hineno Station?

2. Approximately how much would a taxi ride cost (incl. night charges, if any)?:

a) From Kansai Airport to Best Western Hotel Kansai Airport cost

b) From Kansai Airport to Kansai Airport Washington Hotel (near Rinku Town station)

Regards,

Bob

You can input your link into an online translator and get the entire timetable translated. Only the 3:50am bus stops at Hineno. Google Translator does an excellent job with the timetable.

Taxi cost to Rinku is roughly 3,000 Yen while heading to Hineno is about 5,000 Yen.

If you don't mind a late transfer, you can actually ride a 1:45am bus (Terminal 1 departure time) into Osaka proper.

If you don't have checked bags, or if the bags come out quick enough, you can run for the late night bus to Osaka. Many people would just sleep at the airport instead. There is a 24 hr land side lounge/internet cafe. HK based Chinese language travel forums have lots of details on how to deal with this specific flight.

Passengers on this flight tend to be very budget conscious
