    If you're taking a late flight out at the end of a long day, ¥500 gives you 30min to grab a shower at the KIX Refresh Cabin; the transit lounge also has complimentary drinks and massage chairs!

    Free wifi is very difficult to find in Osaka, so use the free wifi in KIX to buy the cheapest data sim card here http://www.bmobile.ne.jp/english/u300_visitor.html and have it delivered to your hotel.

    Great variety of foods & snacks from all over Japan. If you're looking for Royce Chocolate, you've found it. Prices are truly "Duty Free". U can easily tell by visiting any of the high-end shops.

    Arriving and a foreigner? Be sure to properly fill your disembarkation card (don't forget the back!) BEFORE queueing at immigration. It will save you, your fellow travelers and staff a lot of time.

    Osaka int'l hub is seamlessly connected to the city in many different ways (train, ferry, bus) so you don't need an expensive (16,000¥) taxi. Nice choice of shops and restaurants. Free WiFi.

    Get your simcard 7 day unlimited promotion. Around 5200 yen . If still available . Normal price is 6900 yen i think. Compare if you malaysia roaming charge you 40myr perday x 7 = 280myr ( 7000 yen) .

    TO KYOTO> buy a 1 day JR pass ( yen 2300 works out cheaper and faster than bus 2550 ) & when in KYOTO then buy single all day passes which aren't available at osaka.

    Take the train or bus into Osaka city. Cabs are very expensive. Takes about 45 mins by train. I had a long layover at KIX and got into the city and back very leisurely. Worth the trip!

    For those who want to go to downtown Osaka (e.g. Namba, Shin-Imamiya), take the Nankai trains. For those who want to change to the Shinkansen or those who want to go to Kyoto directly, take JR West.

    Kyoto-bound? Buy the Haruka & ICOCA combo ticket at the JR train office. 4000 Yen cash gets a roundtrip from KIX to Kyoto on Haruka express train + 2500 on a ICOCA for more transport in Kansai region.

    Terminal 1 for all airlines except Peach and Terminal 2 is for Peach only. Take the free shuttle bus from Terminal 2 to terminal 1 where the train station is located. That's the cheapest way to town.

    Rapid-0 is a smooth way to get to the airport from Namba, however it costs about 20usd. Also Japanese security is very through, I had maybe a sip of water left and that required a bag search.
