until what time does the bus operates from osaka airport to nagoya station?

No bus runs between Osaka Kansai Airport and Nagoya Station.
Alternatively you first take the Nankai Line train to Namba, then transfer to Kintetsu Limited Express to Nagoya. The last train from Namba to Nagoya leaves at 21:30 hrs.
You might purchase the Kintetsu Railpass for 3,500 yen. It's cheaper than the Namba-Nagoya one way ticket for the limited express.

I don't think the ticket machines and the ticket counters accept credit cards at Nankai stations.

Does anyone know what time the last train leaves from Namba to the airport? Is the shuttle from the airport in operation after the arrival of this train? I have a flight at the most awkward time...

Hi, Is there a limousine bus from KIX to Tempozan area? I prefer to go directly to tempozan. If taxi how much is the estimated cost?

Hope you can help
