kansai internation airport

Kansai Internation Airport

Dear Sir,

On our group arrival at Kansai Int. Airport, I plan to take JR Express, Haruka to Shin-Osaka Station. Then we will take the Midosuji Line to Shinsaibashi. We are staying at Hearton Hotel Minami Senba nearby station. Is this the best option? Actually prefer to take the Limousine Bus but they don't send direct to hotel, correct? Would appreciate some advice. BTW when is the Midosuji Autumn Parade start ?

Thanks & Best Regards,

Hi there!

I think the destination is correct (shinsaibashi), but you'll save time transferring to the Midosuji line at Tennoji and then travelling up to Shinsaibashi from there. Here's a sample itinerary for you.

As far as I can see the Midosuji parade has been discontinued sine 2008 I'm afraid...

Hope this helps!

Dear Mari,

Really appreciate you kind information. Will use the route as proposed by you.

Maybe you can also advise me regarding my transport from Tokyo to Osaka. FYI, I am staying in Sobestu Fresa Inn Tokyo Kyobashi. On my return trip to Osaka, I plan to take a subway to Tokyo Station to take the Shinkansen. Is this the best route?

Thanks & Warmest Regards,
