Universal Keihan Tower to/from Kansai  (3 Answers)

Will be arriving Osaka 6am June 5..how do I get to the hotel from Kansai airport? Also, what can my fellow VT members advice as to how I can get to Kansai from the hotel with a 10am ETD on June 10? Bus to airport will leave at a much better time. So probably train would be a better option. If so, which one am I to take? I will be bringing a large bag with me. Thanks.

Two of us will be travelling to Osaka early June. We will arrive early morning of 05 June and will leave morning of 10June...so that is around 4.5days in Osaka.
1. We plan to stay near Osaka station..am I right in using this as a base to visit nearby towns/cities?
2.What hotels can you guys recommend? We are looking at a maximum budget of around $800for 5 nights.
3. Upon arrival, we will most likely be spending the day around the City...any suggestions?
4. We plan to visit Universal studios on Monday and Tuesday...too much time or just enough?
5. On Wed and Thu, we plan to visit neighboring cities..Nara, Kyoto, etc. any advice on how to get to these places on our own? Is there any special tickes similar to Eurail that we can just buy and take any trains?
Thanks guys.

Osaka in April 2015  (9 Answers)

It's my first time to travel to Osaka with my daughter, and I have no clue how to begin this 6 day tour.

1. Which area should we get a hotel to check in to? (I already have a reservation at Hotel Shin Imamiya Address: 1-2-20 Haignochaya, Nishinari-ku 557-0004; Area/City/Country: Tennoji/Uehonmachi/Osaka/Japan) Is this a good place and is the area convenient to most parks visited by tourists?

2. We intend to visit Kyoto / Nara, should we stay 1 night in this area too? Or is it convenient to go back to our reserved hotel for the night if we will be visiting Universal Studios the next day?

3. If we stay in that said area (Nishinari-ku) which should we visit first? Universal Studios or Kyoto/Nara?

Your feedback would really help us decide a big bulk of our tour questions :) Thank you in advance!
