Hello,

We would like to go to the Kobe Harbor land from Nara. Which Kobe station would be best for taking the JR from Nara?

Also we are going to Osaka (the dotoburi area) from Kyoto. We are not sure which station to get off would be best.

Many thanks!
Frank

To go to Dotonbori, you can get down at Namba station as I presume you will be using JR pass? Walk down the Namba walk and exit B22. From there walk to Dotonbori around 5mins. I used google map to navigate while walking and it helps alot ^^

Hi Frank,

Michvoo already posted some great tips!

The station I would travel to with the JR Pass is JR Namba, it's about 10 min on foot from there to Dotonbori. The walk is also very nice to make, as you'll see many interesting shows and landmarks.

To travel to Kyoto with the JR Pass, go to Osaka station (also known as Umeda). Here direct trains run to Kyoto in less than 30 minutes.

Thanks to Daniel and Michvoo for your great tips.

What about the first question? We will be in Nara for half day and will head to Kobe.

Which Kobe station would be best for taking the JR from Nara? We plan to go to the Kobe harbor land area where the Kobe Meriken Park Oriental hotel is located.

Thanks,
Frank
