Travelling from Narita Airport, Tokyo to Osaka

We will be travelling directly down to Osaka upon arriving in Narita Airport. What is the best itinerary using our JR railpass? Also when arriving in Osaka, which station will it be? I see that there are 13 options for Osaka on the Hyperdia app. I am curious to know which station is most central as we need to book one night at a hotel close to the station.

Thank you in advance for your help.


Hi there,

The best way from Tokyo - Osaka is to take the Narita Express from Narita Airpoirt to Tokyo station and take the bullet train from there directly to Shin-Osaka station. From there local trains run throughout the city, including to Osaka station.

Great places to stay are either near Osaka station (the Umeda area) or down in Namba/Shinsaibashi.

Hope this helps,
