Frequently Asked Questions about Traffic Information in Osaka

Are “Osaka Station” and “Umeda Station” the same station?

“Osaka Station” refers to JR Osaka Station. “Umeda Station” exists on multiple lines, and there are three lines: Hankyu Railway, Subway Midosuji Line, and Hanshin Electric Railway.
In addition, the subway Yotsubashi line is “Nishi-Umeda station,” and the Tanimachi line is “Higashi-Umeda station”.
Strictly speaking, each station is a separate station, but the building itself can be said to be the same as a large one, and transfers at each station are usually done on foot.
Therefore, it can be said that “Osaka Station” and “Umeda Station” geographically refer to the same area, and it is common to think that “Higashi-Umeda Station” and “Nishi-Umeda Station” are also included in “Umeda Station”. You can say that.

What is the best way to get from Kansai International Airport to the center of Osaka?

It depends on the area you go to. There are mainly high-speed bus and train options, but the estimated travel times and fees for each area are as follows.
I think it’s best to choose according to your travel plans and budget.

Is Shin-Osaka a place to enjoy?

More than 30 stores in “Eki Marche” are inside the station. There are also many shops on the 2nd and 3rd floors to buy souvenirs.
You can also enjoy Osaka gourmet at Eki Marche. You can go to Shin-Osaka a few hours early until the time of the return Shinkansen and enjoy souvenirs and Osaka gourmet.

Where are the escalators lined up?

Osaka is lined up on the right. I think it’s the basis of lining up on the left in Tokyo, so be especially careful.

What are the main means of transportation in the area?

The most convenient way to go sightseeing in Osaka is by train.
There are many lines, such as JR, subway, and private railways so you can move anywhere.
The main sightseeing spots, the Umeda area, and the Namba / Shinsaibashi area, can also be reached in a few minutes using the Midosuji Line.
If you use your discount tickets well, you can use up the train without worrying about the fare.
