      KIX is a great airport, but Springtime in Japan has become very popular with tourists. Please arrive at the airport two hours before your return flight to allow ample time for security and immigration. Airport transfer from Rokko Island Sheraton to KIX takes around one hour; prior registration is required. Online registration can be completed here.
