jr line in osaka

JR Line in Osaka

hi there,

i will travel to OSAKA on 29 April 2016 and already purchase my JR PASS.

i will travel from tokyo so my travel will start at Shin-Osaka station.

i would like to know which Line should i use to get to this place .

  1. Shin-Osaka to shinsaibashi
  2. shinsaibashi to osaka castle
  3. shinsaibashi to Dotonburi
  4. Shinsaibashi to Kyoto

Hi there,

There the closest JR line near Shinsai bashi is JR-Namba. From there you can use local JR lines to explore Osaka and beyond.

Shinsaibashi is very close to Dotonbori and you can just walk there. Even Osaka castle is within walk able distance (around 30min).

Hope this helps,
