This means a visitor from a foreign country must come to Kyoto from the nearest airport. For those who visit another city in Japan first, it is necessary to take a train (mostly Shinkansen) or a bus.

The nearest airport to Kyoto is Kansai International Airport or Osaka International Airport (usually called Itami Airport). Mostly the former is used, but for connecting flights from other Japanese airports such as Tokyo/Narita, Itami might be used.

Please check “3 things to Do at Kansai International Airport” which has very practical and useful information for every traveler using this airport.
