Osaka: Tennoji Station Area
Located to the south of the Namba Station area, the neighbourhoods around Tennoji Station are enjoying revitalisation and increasing popularity over recent years. Considered a little more rough and ready – in a city already considered a little rough and ready (by Japanese standards) – Tennoji is a good option for travellers wanting to spend a little less while enjoying some good shopping, dining and nightlife and easy access to the aiprort.
High-end options include the Osaka Marriot Miyako Hotel with plenty of mid-range and budget options also available. One big advantage of staying in Tennoji is access to the Limited Express Haruka which runs from the station to Kansai International Airport in just 35-minutes.
