    Osaka Transportation

    We used the subway several times in Osaka and, as in Tokyo, found it easy enough (with the help of a map) perhaps because we are so used to the London Underground system.

    Osaka Transportation

    We travelled to Osaka from Odawara after our few days in Hakone. We took the bullet train to Shin-Osaka station. Although we had been on the Shinkansen (the proper name for the bullet train) from Tokyo to Odawara, this was a much longer ride (2.5 hours) and it was the first time we had experienced the train getting up to full speed. Everyone says...

    The Haruka is an express train that will take you to Kansai international airport in 50 minutes. It's fast, comfortable and relatively inexpensive, and there is dedicated space for baggage.

  • A General Tip

    If you're like the majority of people here, you will not have access to cars. You probably would think twice about driving the wild streets of Osaka too. While Japan boasts one of the best public transportation systems in the world, there is a caveat: most subways and trains stop running around midnight. Many a traveller have been stranded (drunk)...
