Kaiyu Kippu pass: anyone knows about it?

by traveldream

I read about the 2500-yen Kaiyu Kippu. They said it is a 1-day unlimited pass for subway (Osaka only?), and can get us admission to Osaka Aquarium.

Can anyone tell me more about it?
And do we use subway alot in one day around Osaka?

Thanks in advance for any info.

I don't know anything about the pass, but if it gets you admission into the Osaka Aquarium (Kaiyukan), then it's worth it for 2500yen. Admission into the aquarium is already 2000yen/pp.

Yes, there is 2500yen Kaiyu Kippu. Price is various by the train. the cheapest one is subway. there are another ticket set with Nankai line, Hankyu line etc.
You can take subway unlimited for 1 day in Osaka only.
Normal entry fee for Kaiyukan is 2000yen. The nearest travelling fee by subway is 200yen.

You can travel alot around Osaka by subway such as to Namba, Umeda, Tennouji, Osaka castle etc. This Kaiyu Kippu is definitely worth!

Travel Tips for Osaka

Stroll through Nakanoshima Park.

by worldkiwi

Nakanoshima Park is at the eastern tip of Nakanoshima Island, in the centre of Osaka. There are a number of municipal buildings on the island, including the city library and art museum. The park is a nice quiet spot in which to escape the rush and hectic pace of the Kata area, or the full on shopping and commercialism of the Minami area.

Ferries to and from Osaka

by salisbury3933

Osaka has a lot of ferries heading to various places.
There's more than one port, so you need to work out which one to go to, but there are international ferries to Pusan and Shanghai, ferries to Shikoku (Matsuyama, Kochi, Takamatsu, Niihama/Toyo), and to Kyushu (Beppu)

Ferries are often the cheapest way to get between two points, and an overnight ferry will save you a night's accommodation as well.

Same bland food but satisfying

by rmiya84778 about Mc Donalds

McDonalds Restaurants are located all over Osaka. You can almost walk within distance of them in shopping areas of Nanba and Umeda and other area's. Sevice fast, food hot always when served. Teryiyaki Burgers and Fries. Many restaurants in USA are starting to offer this. In Osaka, they have always had. Not available at McDonalds mainland USA locations. (available in Hawaii) Other items on menu include same type items served at McDonalds worldwide. I know when I order here, food will taste same as if IM at home in California.

Great Food - Okonimiyaki

by robslacker

Dotonbori and Beyond

by Circle88


As any asian metropolis, Osaka`s centre is buzzing with 24h with life. Try to imagine the city center as a circle. Umeda ”~“c is at the North end and has a reputation of being rather high class. Namba “ï”g�@is situated at the South end of the circle and is popular for a good night out in town. The city centre is orbitted by JR loopline train (Japanese Railways) and crossed in every possible direction by subway trains. Umeda ”~“c to Namba “ï”g is a mere 10 minute ride on Midosuji Œä“°�@line (red).
Dotonbori in Namba is a frequented spot by both tourists and locals. I would reccomend a visit at night so one can apreciate the glowing neon lights and the armies of hosts and hostesses that adorn the little bridge.
Osaka is pretty ugly compared to many cities but has by far the best nightlife (id say even than Tokyo) and offers a great base for exploring the rest of Kansai.


Osaka has vast suburbs. As mentioned the North side is considered to be higher class while the South is considered lower class. Some are purely residential areas so not very interesting but others have a character of their own.T he Nanko “ì�`�@port area has many places to visit like Tenpozan and the ATC.


Yes, Quite surprisingly Osaka does have outskirts. Most notably I would consider Minoo–¥–Ê city in the north with its park full of monkeys and Sennan�ò“ì in the south where the sea starts looking welcoming for a refreshing dip.
