Osaka International Airport (ITM)
One of three airport's serving Osaka and the Kansai region of Japan, Osaka Itami Airport (ITM) is close to Akutagawa, Higashiosaka, Muko, Sandra, Suita and Toyonaka. Located within the Osaka Prefecture and Japan's Southern-Central Honshu area, Itami Airport is linked to the city via a lengthy tunnel, which passes directly beneath the runway itself.
The airport no longer serves international traffic, but instead it is a busy domestic hub, handling flights to over 30 Japanese cities. There are two terminals, which serve less than ten different airlines, of which Japan Airlines is especially prominent. Of particular interest, Marilyn Monroe flew to Osaka Itami Airport in the mid-1950s, as part of her honeymoon in Japan.
Airport buses run to a variety of destinations around Osaka, while a monorail service connects the airport with major train lines. Taxis and hotel shuttles are also available and particularly convenient, travelling into central Osaka and its many districts, such as Doyama-cho, Midosuji, Minami, Shinsaibashi and Tennoji.
