KIX To Aeon Mall in Sennan 2011/7/9 01:48
Hi, I have a stopover at Kansai International Airport and I have a 7 hour stopover there. I plan to do some shopping at Aeon Mall in Sennan particularly because it has the closest Tower Records from Kansai International Airport. My question is, can someone give me a guide to get there? I want to get there through the cheapest method and fastest time if that is possible. I checked google maps, and it told me to take Nankai trains to Okadaura Station. Then I must walk to Aeon Mall. Any suggestions so that I can make it back to the airport in time? And I also need help with figuring out what train to ride when i'm at the stations (floor marks, signs). And how do I know which train to switch to such as when i switch trains at the Izumisano Station? Thank you!

It is a complicated situation (infrequent shuttle buses from various nearby stations), explained in Japanese here:

Unfortunately Aeon malls in general tend to think only about car drivers and provide no convenient access by public transportation.

If you have problems figuring out the shuttle bus system, I recommend to walk to the mall from Okadaura Station. You can look up connections from the airport here: http://www.hyperdia.com/

If you know your connection times, the transfers at at Izumisano Station should pose no major problems. Just look for the platform from which a train in direction of Wakayama (as opposed to Kansai Airport and Osaka-Namba) departs at the noted departure time (it will be either a "local" or "sub express" trains - the faster train categories do not stop at Okadaura).
