Tokyo to Osaka

Hi I will be putting up near Ueno Station. I have a 7 day JR Pass. How can I use it to go from Tokyo to Osaka? Thank you.


Hi there,

To travel from Ueno to Osaka. First take a local train to Tokyo station. From there Shinkansen depart to Osaka.

The Shinkansen stops at Shin-Osaka station, from here local trains will bring you into the city.

Hope this helps,
