Shin Osaka to JR Namba

Hello,

Our hotel is near JR Namba station.

How best should we transfer from Shin Osaka to this station?

We plan to activate our JR passes upon arrival at Kansai Airport.

Thank you!

Hi there,

The best way to travel from Shin-Oaska - JR Namba is to take a local train from Shin-Osaka to Tennoji station. Here you can transfer to the JR Yamatoji Line Local bound for JR namba.

The JR Pass covers the entire route.

Hope this helps!

Hello Daniel,

Thank you for your response.

Our hotel is actually near JR Osaka station.

Does the same transfers apply?

Or is it better to use the subway?

Many thanks.

Hi Again!

You've got two options with the JR from Osaka. Take a local train to either Shin-Imamiya or Tennoji and transfer there to a local service to JR-Namba. Or take the subway directly from Osaka station. Note that the subway is not covered by the JR Pass.
