Hi Carol,

First you will want to make your way from Haneda Airport to Tokyo station, from where you can use the Shinkansen trains to Osaka.

First, take the Tokyo Monorail to Hamamatsucho, the last stop of the Monorail. There transfer to the Yamanote line bound for Tokyo station. This parts takes around 40min. From Tokyo use the Shinkansen to Shin-Osaka (160-180 minutes) from where local trains run throughout Osaka.

Hope this helps,
