Traffic Restrictions and Airport Congestion due to the G20 Osaka Summit

     A large-scale traffic restriction is expected from Thursday, June 27th to Sunday, June 30th in highways and roads in Osaka City due to the G20 Osaka Summit. We strongly recommend visitors to use the railway, which is less likely to be affected by the restriction.
     Please ensure sufficient time in using the three airports which serve as gateways to the Kansai region (Kansai International Airport, Osaka International Airport (Itami Airport), and Kobe Airport), as these three airports will be affected by various restrictions. In particular, the Kansai International Airport and the Osaka International Airport (Itami Airport) will be reinforcing airport security measures, and the police will be checking proof documents for airport use, such as airline tickets, e-tickets, and airline reservation tickets. Please be prepared to show them. Those who do not have such proof documents will have their baggage checked instead.
     We kindly ask for your understanding and cooperation.
