November 2018 First order of the day upon arriving Kansai Airport was to perform our morning prayer. Kansai Airport offers a prayer room on level 3F of Terminal 1. Coincidentally, Malaysian Airline passengers disembark at Terminal 1. One can take the elevator but for odd reason, it only stops at 2F and 4F. So it’s your choice to then take the escalator up one level from 2F or down one level from 4F. Way to the prayer room will pass Uniqlo & Daiso.
The prayer rooms are separated by gender. It has it’s own ablution area and the room is quite spacious with the prayer area fully carpeted. These prayer rooms are one of the better ones we’ve been in Japan. A big thank you to the management of Kansai Airport for providing these prayer rooms. From their website, we understand there are two more prayer rooms available at departure airside. Unfortunately, we’ll be leaving Japan via Narita Airport.
