KIX's 25th Anniversary & Sky Day
Japan's first 24 hour airport, Kansai International Airport, was opened on September 4th of 1994 and has been open now for 25 years. KIX offers flights to 73 cities worldwide and roughly 30 million passengers travel through every year. We would like to express our appreciation to all the customers who use KIX as a sky gateway that connects Osaka, in the Kansai region, to the world.

In the museum, we introduce the 25 year history of KIX from opening until now.
The monument has "KIX25" written on the front that is completed after people drop a ball that has a message inside. The first 100 visitors to write a message will receive a 25th anniversary Sora-yan baggage tag. We hope everyone can participate with lots of energy.
