I enjoy visiting this station, not because I'm a train spotter, it's because it has what you need under one roof...Trains, shops, cleanliness and lovely architecture. It's worth a visit just for the architecture.

Chances are, you would definitely drop by this place at least once during your Osaka trip. It's a central hub with everything you need. Even though it's huge, signboards are clear and concise. So you wouldn't fear getting lost.

A nice enough place to be in when planning trips around Osaka. You have shopping, eats, money changers, travel agencies, railroads and more all in one place.

Osaka JR Station should be one of the best organised shopping/eating cum traffic hub in the world. It was really large but the signages were clear and indicative, so the possibility of get loss there was not great. Probably you would spend over two hours...More
