5 Cheap Options to Visit Okinawa From Kansai

Sure there are no train or bus options to Okinawa from Kansai, but that doesn't mean you need to break the bank for a beach getaway this summer. There are plenty of flights through Low-Cost Carriers (LCC) that are available from the various airports in Kansai that could get you there with plenty of cash left to splurge. Let's explore some options.

5. Skymark Airlines

Skymark Airlines is another LCC that operates out of Kobe Airport. They recently had some financial trouble but have since made a comeback and offer flights semi-regularly to Okinawa. Due to the convenience of the airport from which it departs, it might be worth checking their prices out to see if you can fly out on a budget.

4. Vanilla Air

Vanilla Air operates out of Narita Airport in Tokyo but has recently started to offer cheap flights in and out of Kansai Airport. Though they don't offer a regular schedule such as their competitors in Kansai, they might still be worth a look for a cheap ticket to Okinawa.

3. Solaseed Air

Another LCC airline partly owned by ANA is Solaseed Air. They operate out of Kobe Airport and offer a lot of cheap domestic flights around Japan. The airport has much easier access options that Kansai International Airport as it's very close to Kobe's city center.
