We'll already have had 2 full days, plus 2 half-days each side in Kyoto. But we fly KIX-HGK-USM at 10am the following day, so I thought it might be sensible to get closer to KIX the night before. We wouldn't cut short Kyoto, but early evening, we'd head to Osaka, rather than bed-in at the RC Kyoto.

I've no sense of how easy it is to get around (first time in Japan), but it looked like RC Kyoto to KIX is about 2.5 hours, while StR Osaka to KIX is about an hour. So really, it's about shaving 90 minutes off the commute on what will already be an early start. That said, if someone told me it was super-easy getting from RC Kyoto to KIX, I'd be all ears.
