Late arrival at KIX

Dear all,

am in a bit of a dilemma here. my flight to KIX lands on 2120 hours. I'm thinking of getting the Icoca and Haruka package, but I checked Hyperdia, and the last Haruka train departs KIX at 2216 hours. Hence, would I be able to make the connection in time?

The reason for getting the Icoca and Haruka package is because I'll be spending my first half of my trip in Osaka, before spending the next half in Kyoto. As such, for my return trip, I will be travelling from Kyoto to KIX. And for this leg, the Haruka is the more direct alternative.

Would the Icoca package be suitable for me, or is there other ones that are more suitable? Thanks for the advice!

since u are taking the train from KIX to Osaka, u need not take Haruka. u can take Kansai airport rapid service instead which is still available until 11:32pm. u can still buy the round trip Haruka package and use it on the Kansai airport rapid service

Yup, your understanding regarding tickets is correct, can only do Level 1 Standing for both afternoon and night shows.

Been to Zepp Sapporo for a rock concert before, it was perfectly fine at the back. (But I'm not sure how "fanatic" Miku fans can get). The venue is small. Remember to have a 500yen coin with you to buy the compulsory drink. Also keep your bags in the lockers available outside, realised that Japanese fans don't bring any bags in.

The locker area I saw was part of the building but not indoors, still need to walk 1 min into the concert hall entrance.

Anyone been to Kyoto during the autumn foliage peak season? Heard the crowd volume can be really bad. Is it to the extent of waiting for 2-3 hours for popular restaurants or dessert places etc? Any tips to deal with the situation?

dun eat at those "有名" places unless it just present itself as a chance

Japanese are well conditioned to queuing, some places have queues every weekend or everyday... a 30-45 min wait is considered short.

A good idea (imo) is if you really want to try the famous restaurants/shops do so at off times. This is dependant though, u might find that they have "break" timings

Thanks for the advice! Actually I'm more looking forward to trying out the famous matcha dessert shops in Kyoto, but I don't want spend precious daytime queuing up when I can make use of the time to see autumn leaves, especially when the sun sets early at 4-5pm and most dessert shops close by 6pm.

Oh well...I guess I won't know the 'best' timing until I'm there...

Going to Tokyo in mid Dec. What kind of winter wear is needed? Need thermal wear?

Was thinking one normal layer of t-shirt, one layer of normal jacket, and one layer of down jacket/parka jacket. Should be enough?
