questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

osaka to tokyo

Osaka to Tokyo


Need your help on how to use the JR Pass :

  1. From hotel in Kamihonmachi, Tennoji-ku Osaka to Dotombori
  2. From hotel in Kamihonmachi, Tennoji-ku Osaka to Universal Studios and back to hotel
  3. From hotel in Kamihonmachi, Tennoji-ku Osaka to Osaka Castle
  4. From hotel in Kamihonmachi, Tennoji-ku Osaka to hotel in Shibuya, Shinjuku Tokyo
  5. From Shibuya, Shinjuku hotel to Kansai Airport

Are there any other train tickets that we need to get aside from the JR Pass if we are going to the places above?

Thank you very much.


Hi there,

The closest station I could find near Kamihonmachi is Takatsuki station. For there you can use the JR to access most of Osaka and also travel to places such as Kyoto.

The JR Pass can be used for travel between all these places. For Dotombori, I think the best way to get there is to take the JR to JR-Namba station and walk from there.

For Universal, studio just go to Universal Studio station.

For Osaka Castle, go to Osakajokoen station. Here is an example route.

For Shibuya, take a local train to Shin-Osaka station, board the Shinkansen to Tokyo station and in Tokyo use the JR yamanote line to Shibuya.

The way back is the same but reverse. From Shin-Osaka station, take a train to Kansai Airport.

Hope this helps,
