How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Kyoto

These handy tips and pointers about airport security procedures will save you a lot of time and energy on your journey to Kyoto:

  • Make sure your passport and boarding pass are easily accessible. You'll need to show them straightaway.
  • Take off your belt and shoes before approaching security. Items such as these are not permitted to pass through the body scanner.
  • Laptops need to be taken out of their protective carriers and placed in a tub before going through the X-ray machine.
  • Toothpaste, lip balm and other toiletry items in cream, liquid or gel form need to be stored in containers smaller than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). They also need to fit in a 1-quart (1-liter) clear zip-lock plastic bag.
  • Airport security staff may ask you to remove your shoes in preparation for entering the body scanner. Choose a pair that slip off easily. There's nothing more tiresome than having to do your laces up over and over again.
  • The list of prohibited items is forever updating. Browse your airline's official website to learn about what is not allowed on board their aircraft.

Flights To Kyoto

Kyoto served as Japan's Imperial capital for over one thousand years, and the bountiful culture and beauty of the city make this instantly apparent. If you're studying your options for flights to Kyoto, you'll want to focus on two airports in nearby Osaka: Osaka-Itami International Airport (ITM), which is closer, but offers mainly domestic flights, and Kansai International Airport (KIX), a larger international transportation hub and the primary point of arrival for most tourists to the region.

Transportation From ITM and KIX

Kyoto flights that land at ITM put tired passengers just a short distance from many comfortable hotels. Regardless of the accommodation included in Travelocity's Kyoto vacation packages, keep your options for airport travel in mind. If you fly into ITM, there are buses that run between the airport and Kyoto. Just buy a ticket at one of the machines outside the arrival hall and head to the appropriate boarding area; the trip takes just under an hour. You can also take the monorail to connect with two rail lines that will take you to Kyoto. If, however, you land at KIX, simply hop on the JR Haruka Airport Express, which will take you to Kyoto in just 75 minutes. Reserve a ticket in advance for a slight discount. As in ITM, there are also buses available here. When you arrive in Kyoto, make a quick stop to drop your bags at the hotel and begin your exploration of Kyoto's vivid cultural heritage. Visit hundreds upon hundreds of Buddhist shrines, or take a scenic hike in the surrounding mountains. The city boasts no less than 14 UNESCO World Heritage sites, so there is plenty to keep you busy throughout your stay!
