Is Namba a good area to stay in Osaka

Recommended Posts

Namba is a great place to stay with lots to do and see and very well connected in terms of transport. Actually Namba has four separate railway stations that will get you pretty much anywhere you need to go. To find your way around the area, use this tourist map from the Osaka Info website: http://www.osaka-info.jp/en/plan/images/minami.pdf

To get to Kyoto from Namba, you will need to use the Midosuji Subway Line (http://www.osakastation.com/the-midosuji-subway-line/) from Namba Station, and then transfer at one of three possible stations. If you transfer at Yodoyabashi Station, you can take the Keihan Main line directly into central Kyoto. If you transfer at Umeda Station to nearby Osaka Station you can take a Special Rapid service train to  Kyoto Station. Alternatively take the Midosuji Line to Shin Osaka Station and hop on a shinkansen bullet train for Kyoto Station. Use the Jorudan website to plan your journey and check the times:  http://www.jorudan.co.jp/english/
