Hi, 

Good morning.

I m staying near namba station. Upon arrival in Kansai Aiport, 

1. Can I buy amazing Osaka card and use it to access Nankai Namba train to namba station?

2. Can I prebook  the ticket?

 

what do you suggest? 

I am a bit confused as so many different cards..

 

thank you

Osaka Amazing Pass doesn’t cover the Nankai lines, it only covers Osaka municipal subway and bus lines.

We would recommend a Kansai Thru Pass instead. It covers Nankai, Subway and many other lines in the region.

Please note that this Pass covers Airport Express train from Kansai Airport to Namba. Rapi:t train requires seat reservations and additional charges.

Hello.

I am choosing Kansai Thru Pass and I already know that I can use Nankai Train from KIX to Namba/Tennoji. But if I want to upgrade to Express Rapi:t how much extra tariff that I have to pay?

Kansai Thru Pass will cover base fare from KIX to Namba. You will need to pay an extra fee of around 500 yen to upgrade to Rapi:t with a reserved seat.

You can take regular Airport Express without extra charges.
