Osaka: Universal City Area
Heading west from central Osaka, the area around Universal City Station is popular for one reason, and one reason only – Universal Studios Japan (USJ). One of the country’s most popular attractions, the expansive theme pack boasts multiple family-oriented hotels including Liber Hotel, The Park Front Hotel. Hotel Universal Port Vita, Hotel Keihan Universal Tower and Hotel Keihan Universal City. Staying in the area will be of most interest to travellers prioritising their time at USJ given the longer travel times – often requiring one or more transfers – to Shin-Osaka Station, Kansai International Airport and the popular districts of Umeda, Namba and Shinsaibashi.
