KIX Refresh Square and Airport Lounge: Best Places to Relax at Kansai International Airport!

Osaka’s Kansai International Airport is the traveler’s gateway to the Osaka area. Because it acts as a hub airport, it’s filled with travelers who are on their way to other parts of Japan, or on their way out of Japan.

That being the case, sometimes your flight is in the early morning or late night, meaning you can’t transfer immediately, or even on the same day. When that happens, you want to spend some hours in relaxing spots at the airport. They’re filled with services to help you pass time!

1. KIX Refresh Square: All sorts of booths to relax in
