It takes around 1 hour and 10 minutes to get from Kansai International Airport (KIX) to Osaka (Umeda) Station via the JR Kansai Airport Rapid Service trains. To get to the Namba area, home to Dotonbori and Shinsaibashi, it is 40 minutes and a direct ride. A bus from KIX takes 50 minutes to Namba and 1 hour to the Umeda area in Osaka.

The Tokaido Shinkansen is a convenient option for getting to Osaka from Tokyo. Board at Tokyo Station or Shinagawa Station and get off at Shin-Osaka Station after about a 2.5-hour ride. It takes 30 minutes via express JR train to travel between Osaka and Kyoto.

Getting around Osaka via train is easy. To reach Namba from Osaka, it takes around 10 minutes on the Osaka Metro Midosuji Line.

WEATHER & CLOTHING

The weather in Tokyo depends on the four seasons. Despite the sometimes sudden weather changes from sunny days to rain, many visitors come to Japan in the spring, while the hot temperatures and high humidity caused by June’s rainy season mean the summer starts out quite wet - be careful of sudden thunderstorms and torrential rain during this season as well.
