The Story Behind The Train
Travel in comfort to Kyoto, the former Imperial capital of Japan, in 80 minutes
HARUKA trains connect Kansai International Airport, the gateway to West Japan, to Kyoto and Osaka. This limited express train takes you directly to Kyoto, or you can take it to Shin-Osaka Station to catch the Tokaido-Sanyo Shinkansen and head to different areas of Japan.
The trains feature a spacious interior with room for luggage or other items.
You can also meet Hello Kitty
The Hello Kitty HARUKA features Hello Kitty designs on both the train exterior and interior (please note that it does not operate on some days). With the theme of Japanese hospitality, a kimono-clad Hello Kitty and Japanese-modern worldview will welcome you.
