2) From our Hotel Rose Garden, Shinjuku to Matsubaya Ryokan, Kyoto

3) From Matsubaya Ryokan, Kyoto to Hotel Red Roof Plus, Namba, Osaka

4) From Hotel Red Roof Plus, Namba, Osaka to Hotel Granvia, Hiroshima

4) From Hotel Red Roof Plus, Namba, Osaka to Osaka Kansai Airport (Any convenient train or taxi?)

Many thanks in advance


Hello there,

I generally recommend using Google maps to look up the route between your hotel and any station. Just look for the hotel and then use the route finding to the closest JR station. Otherwise it can be useful to search for your hotel name + access in Google, this will help you find nearly any accomodation. If all fails, I recommend asking your hotel directly. Since hotels are local, they will be able to give you the best details.

Assuming you will use the JR Pass, to travel from Haneda to Shinjuku using the JR Pass. Take the Tokyo Monorail from Haneda Airport to Hamamatsucho. From there, use the JR Yamanote line to Shinjuku (JR).

Hope this helps,
