Shimbashi Shopping Arcade & Dotonburi

by sandylpc

I am planning to use my JR Pass from Kyoto to Osakajokoen (Osaka Castle). From Osakajokoen, I plan to go to Shimbashi Shopping Arcade and the to Dotonburi for dinner.

I cannot use the JR Pass from Osakajokoen to Namba(subway). I can only use it from Osakajokoen to JR-Namba. Is the JR-Namba station convenient to get to Shimbashi shopping arcade & Dotonbori.

Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks

Sandy

Are you talking about Shinsaibashi? If you get off at JR Namba, then yes you can walk to Shinsaibashi Shopping Arcade. It's a 15 min walk and you pass by shops and restaurants on the way so it's a quick walk. :) Have fun!

Thanks Heywinks.

Yes, I mean Shinsaibashi. From the JR Namba station, which exit should I take to Dotonbori or Shinsaibashi.

Namba is a HUGE station. I don't know which exit you should take. There will probably be signs (in Japanese and English) towards the area you want to go to. If you can't find the signs, just ask someone. Namba is a really "young" area - lots of young people hanging around who will know a bit of English. Don't hesitate to ask someone. They will point you in the right direction.

Travel Tips for Osaka

Osaka & Kansai.

by Sharrie

While Kyoto represents the elegant past of Japan, Osaka being a modern city, offers the opposite Japanese experience. Osaka offers the hustling and bustling of a modern city; in fact it is so busy that it is all about making money: Osaka recorded a GDP greater than those of all but 8 countries in the world!

Osaka also offers a chance to enjoy what ordinary Japanese enjoy, having good food & drink in a rowdy atmosphere. They call it kuidaore (eat until you drop)!
Land on KANSAI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: About 90 minutes by limousine bus from Osaka (& do only take the bus, the taxi fare is exorbitant! No joke!), this is the international gateway for most from overseas. An architecture built on a man-made island more than 10 years ago the island is sinking everyday! You must see this; it is one of the most modern, well-equipped and crowded airport in the world. Kansai I. Airport is also the world's 1st ocean airport! The airport was 1st opened on Sep. 4, 1994. Many flights take off from here every single minute of the day!

temple nr.4

by globetrott

Temple Nr. 4 was the strangest place in my opinion, because it included several things that looked rather like sports-instruments and soccer-flags for me than as things with a religious meaning. And when you take a closer look at my last 2 photos, that puppet of a snówman & Donald Duck and also that "bee" or whatever that sculpture should be are certainly a part of the arrangements there and not something that is lying around there accidentally.

---------------------------------------
maybe someone here on VT can give me some explanations about this temple Nr.4

Shin-Imamiya Subway Train Station

by freddie18

If you are staying at Hotel Taiyo in Osaka, it is very convenient to travel by train from Kansai International Airport. It is 55 minutes travel time for 1030 Yen by Express JR line. Get off at a subway train station called Shin-Imamiya. I posted a picture taken just outside the entrance of the station. From the signboard on the photo, it is only 3 minutes on foot to the Hotel Taiyo.

There are four major subway stations in Osaka, these are:
JR Osaka Station
Umeda Station
Shin Osaka Station
Tennoji Station

Osaka-jo

by kevarms

Surprisingly this castle is the most visited tourist attraction in Japan. It certainly looks quite impressive from the outside but visitors may be surprised to learn that it's actually a 1931 reconstruction built from concrete! Inside is largely disappointing to be honest.
Much more impressive is the surrounding walls, gates and moats which I believe are original. An amazing feat of engineering.

Osaka Aquarium - amazing aquatic sights.

by worldkiwi

On a grey, wet, and chilly Saturday 7 April 2007, I headed out to the Osaka Aquarium to see the acclaimed main attraction - the world's only captive whale shark. Despite the rather hefty entrance fee of 2000 yen (about NZ$24), the aquarium is a place I can recommend fully to visitors in Osaka. In fact, compared to an underwater attraction here in Auckland, New Zealand, which charges roughly the same entrance fee, the Osaka Aquarium (or Kaiyukan, as it is known) is far better value for money.
The layout of the aquarium is very clever. Visitors arrive and, after paying the entrance fee, take an esculator to the 8th floor. From there you wind your way back down to ground level, passing progressively 'deeper' waters of the same tanks in the centre and around the edges as you do so. This means you get to view life at all layers of each tank. In some, there isn't much variation (as with the Pacific Dolphins), but in others you do see quite a lot. Despite the noisy little children and the rather crowded feeling you get in places, the aquarium has plenty of amazing sights besides the impressive star attraction in his/her equally impressive tank. This is a must see sight in Osaka. Don't miss the whale shark and the graceful manta ray (in the same tank), the delightful seals and sealions, the spooky and alien-like spider crabs, and the cute and playful sea otters.
