In order to sign up for the pick-up service, please provide us with your flight information during the designated period through Kansai Gaidai's on-line application system, GAIDAI-LINK. Unless we receive all the necessary information from you, we cannot guarantee that you will be met by our staff at the pick-up point. If, for any reason, your travel plans change, please let us know as soon as possible.

You must provide us with your arrival information regardless of whether or not you take advantage of our pick-up service. Even if you come to Kansai Gaidai on your own, you need to inform us of when you plan to check into the university accommodation; otherwise, language placement tests and necessary sessions cannot be appropriately arranged.

We strongly recommend that you take advantage of our pick-up service in order to ensure your smooth arrival. It is important to note that, given the distance from the above two gateways to Kansai Gaidai, if you are not familiar with Japan’s public transportation system, you will likely encounter some difficulties on the way to Kansai Gaidai. If you use our pick-up service, you will be taken to the area of our university housing and will be guided to your assigned accommodation (to be announced in August).

  • To avoid confusion, we would like to designate the available check-in dates as August 21 (Mon) and August 22 (Tue).
  • Please check in at your assigned dormitory (to be announced in August) first, do not come directly to the CIE office on Nakamiya Campus with your luggage.
