Osaka here I come…


Good timing. With Typhoon Vincente out of the way and the airline backlogs nearly cleared, I’m on my way to Osaka for a quick 5 day trip. I have my hotel booking and my YOKOSO! OSAKA ticket. Sheraton Miyako Hotel Osaka is built on the Kintetsu train station and is a mere 400m from the subway station via underground walkway. I am very pleased with my choice of hotel as I am definitely going to be taking public transportation in Osaka. My Yokoso! Osaka ticket includes a train ride from the airport to Namba station and all day subway and bus rides.  As it came free with my air and hotel package, I chose this option. The airport limousine (coach) runs directly between Kansai airport and the hotel. Most definitely, I will be taking the airport limousine on my way back. The train ride from Kansai costs 1.350¥ plus 200¥ for the subway and the door to door airport limousine costs 1,500¥.

Traveling once in a while is a healthy way of releasing the stress and pressures from work. And nothing is more comfortable than riding a limo going to the airport. How was your 5-day trip to Osaka, Wendy? How about your limo experience? Wasn’t it fabulous?

It was a fab trip. I must say I have never had a holiday I did not enjoy. There were times when things did go wrong but when I am on a holiday, nothing is so bad that I can't handle. You are quite right, a holiday is a healthy way to release stress. The limo was great, thanks.

Good to hear that you really had fun traveling to Osaka! Having an airport limo service is great, right? This way, you don’t have to commute going from point A to point B. It is very convenient because you are guaranteed that you’re going to arrive at your destination on time, especially when you have a very important meeting to attend to.
