  1. The fastest way to travel from KIX to Nankai Namba is by Nankai Airport Express Rapi:t. This train has dedicated luggage space. It is not covered by JR Pass.


    If you choose to take a bus you can find the schedule for the bus to OCAT on this site:

  2. Kansai One Pass is just a special version of ICOCA card. Both Suica and ICOCA are accepted all over Japan.

    Kansai Thru Pass is similar to JR Pass, but offers unlimited travel on non-JR railways in Kansai region for a set number of days.

    You can use either ICOCA or Suica to travel from Osaka to Shugakuin. Both are accepted on Keihan and Eizan lines.
