Kansai International Airport is located on an artificial island in the middle of Osaka Bay, 38 km southwest of Ōsaka Station, located within three municipalities, including Izumisano (north), Sennan (south), and Tajiri (central), in Osaka Prefecture, Japan. Many airports use the letter ‘X’ to fill in when the desired letters are already taken. Fully built on an artificial island, Kansai Airport gets its code from the KansaI region, plus that helpful ‘X’.
