Remm Shin Osaka

Remm Shin Osaka is probably the most convenient hotel in the area since it is in the train station itself. It can be tricky to find it. The instructions I found on the internet says: “The Kansai airport limited express Haruka drops you in the main JR station. From here (platform 11), take the “East” exit, turn right and follow the walkway for a hundred metres or so, taking a right into the large plaza just past the calligraphy store. You’ll find the Shinkansen “Central” gate on your right and the Remm entry straight ahead of you. There will be Tully coffee shop and 2 other restaurants there, to your right there will be a entrance to building and sign for REMM hotel on your right. Lobby is at 12th floor” This is about right except that it is more confusing when you’re actually there. The picture above is where the Central gate is on the left. I saw a Krispy Kreme store ahead on the left if you’re coming towards the Central gate and it’s on your right. Right behind it is the Tully’s coffee shop. Remm Shin Osaka would be on the right turn and you would see the signs pointing to it. You will see this door as you enter.

Kansai Airport through Jetstar and the ICOCA card

This whole trip got started when my cousin tipped me off about a sale on Jetstar. She knows how much I’d love to go to Japan. She already purchased her ticket which were sold out fast unsurprisingly. They went the other route while I asked another cousin if she wanted to go on this trip. So, I immediately purchased us a Manila-Osaka, Tokyo-Manila tickets which were around 8,000+ pesos excluding optional additional luggage for a fee. On researching about this trip, I had to find out what is the best way to get into the city. I learned a lot about Kansai Airport and the ICOCA card.
