    • I suppose you have confused Kochi, India with Kochi, Japan. Assuming that you are referring to the Dormy Inn in Kochi, Japan, The Kochi Ryōma Airport is about half-an-hour away from the hotel. Starting from the airport, you can board the Kochi Airport Limousine Bus and get down at Kita Harimaya Bridge (bus stop) (Kochi Airport Line) which is at a 5-minute walking distance from the Dormy Inn.
