Hi Ralph,

Here's a sample itinerary from Tokyo to Osaka getting you into Osaka at 12:47.

You can look up precise train timetables and costs at the Hyperdia travel planning website and learn how to use Hyperdia for JR Pass holders through our video blog.

Hope this helps!


Hi there,

When you are get to Tokyo Station go to any Ticket Office and reserve a ticket to Shin-Osaka.
From there you can take the local lines to Namba.

Here is an example from travel on the day of your travel.

Bon voyage!
