From Kansai airport
Hi, How do i travel from kansai airport to Nikko Osaka.
Is it difficult to travel with JR Train if we bring our luggage?. Thanks
Re: From Kansai airport
Nearest station to Nikko Osaka is subway Shinsaibashi station (Midosuji line). From the airport, take Nankai train to Namba(=Nanba) station and get a cab to the hotel. You can take subway Midosuiji line from Namba to Shinsaibashi (only 1 station away) but considering you're not familiar to the area and have a luggage, I recommend taking a cab to the hotel.
Re: From Kansai airport
Your first question was already answered by LLgirl so I would like to answer your second question.
'Is it difficult to travel with JR Train if we bring our luggage?.' It is, if you have many luggages. I was in Osaka recently and I travelled from Kansai Int'l Aiport to Shin-amamiya station without difficulties. The reason is;
Each one of us (we were a family of three who travelled) have one suitcase and a handcarry bag. The trains does not have enough space in between the rows of seats. Local people are nice though.

Hope this could be of help.
Travel Tips for Osaka
Osaka was once called the...
Osaka was once called the 'kitchen of Japan' & has been known as a town for gourmets. Its tradition has not changed & people in the Kansai area are very fastidious about taste.
FOOD CULTURE:Blowfish: A part of the blowfish contains poison only an expert chef is allowed to cook it. Blowfish is said to be the king of winter delicacies.
Tetchiri is a dish in which pieces of blowfish & vegetables are cooked in a pot.
Tessa is a plate of thinly sliced raw blowfish.
Kaiseki: A simple meal served on the occasion of a tea ceremony. It is arranged in a decorative way to accent the taste, a sense of the season & the beauty of the serving dishes.
Okonomiyaki: A spicy pancake about 2 cm in thickness. Its dough is made by mixing flour, broth, ground yam & finely cut cabbage & then cooking it on a griddle with ingredients such as meat or prawns on top. When it's cooked thoroughly, it can be garnished with sauce, dried bonito fish flakes & powdered green seaweed before eating. Sound yummy, isn't it?
Generally, the waiter of the restaurant cooks it in front of you, but when you do it yourself you should turn it over carefully so that it won't break into pieces.
Udon (noodles): Thick noodles made with flour. Usually served in a bowl with hot soup & thin fried bean curd or tempura. Kitsune udon (noodles with fried tofu) is a typical Osakan dish.
Udonsuki (noodles cooked sukiyaki-style in a pot) originated in Osaka. Slurping udon is not considered rude.
Osaka-zushi: Sushi generally means nigiri or hand-shaped sushi & Tokyo is its birthplace. Osaka-style sushi is made by placing pieces of sea bream, sea eel or vinegared mackerel between rice layers & pressing them together in a wooden box. This sushi is then cut into small blocks & served.
Fish for Sushi:awabi abalone
akagai ark shell
anago sea eel
aji horse mackerel
tai sea bream
uni sea urchin
ikura salmon roe
Takoyaki: A small dumpling with chopped octopus prepared by baking dough in the round hollows of a special griddle. One of Osaka's most popular snackes, available on many a street corner.
Yakiniku (grilled meat): It is common to cook meat on a griddle, but the most delicious way is to grill it over a charcoal fire. The meat is grilled without seasoning then dipped into a type of soy sauce before eating.
A VARIETY OF GOODS
I always love visiting The Loft. You want to buy a birthday card? There are hundreds here. Want to buy jewelry? There`s a wide assortment to choose from. How about home goods? There`s lots to choose from.
Whatever you need to buy, you can probably find it here. Jewelry, posters, seasonal goods, Japanese fans, pottery, makeup, stationary, CDs, electronics, furniture, incense, travel goods, pillows/sheets/towels, etc.
Located in The Loft is also the chain store MUJI RUSHI & an Italian restaurant Capricciosa.
English-style pub, anyone?, part 2
PIG & WHISTLE.
A very old sign of which there are still a number
Thought to have been adapted from the Saxon piggen (milking pail) and wassail (be in health).
In early days, beer was served in pails and customers dipped their mugs in and served themselves.
The mugs were called pigs.
An alternative suggested origin is that it was Pige-Washael, the Angels' Salutation to the Virgin Mary, which in Danish-Saxon meant "Virgin, Hail" or "Health to the Maiden".
Shinsekai stands for the New world. It used to be a relatively underground area that now has become very popular with all ages of japanese even families. Its main attraction is the Chuntenkaku which is basicly a skytower that you can go up and enjoy the view. The area around is full of places to eat which offer good food at good prices and that can be seen often from the people queing outside fro quite a while. You are bound to run into many graphical characters as well as some old transvestites if you take the darker streets. Never the less it is very safe and there is no worry just smiles. A lot of homeless sleep off their nights around there as well. Shinsekai was by far one of the most interesting and original spots in Japan for me.
The New World.
Over the last few months, the area around Dotombori river has been redeveloped with the addition of wooden walkways along either side, with neighbouring restaurants and bars starting to open directly onto the new path.
The walkway is eventually going to connect right down to the Minato-machi boardwalk.
The Ebisu-bashi bridge (the famous dotombori bridge, as opposed to the Midosuji version) is in the process of being replaced, with plastiglass screens making jumping in a thing of the past.
A new ferris wheel (THE activity of choice in Osaka!) with a bizarre oval shape has opened offering views of the Minami area in a 15 minute ride (1000 yen for one person, 1500 yen for couples).
