Shot and RayOsaka helped us with our last stop in Osaka in 2006. I am glad you all are still active in helping other travelers.
My daughter loved Japan so much from the extremely short layover in Osaka 2 years ago that she decided to take off by herself with a friend to Osaka again, this time attending a concert in Kyocera Dome Osaka.
She will be coming from Tokyo ( I am thinking of getting her a JR pass).
1) i am thinking of booking a hotel for her there so they can get back safely after the concert. But the closest is Hotel New Hankyu Osaka at 1-1-35 Shibata Kita.
Is there any other less expensive but nice enough nearby hotel for 2 girls that is close to the JR station and the Dome at the same time?
2) When I checked the trains coming from tokyo at hyperdia.com, it says the train will stop at Osaka station (for Hotel New Hankyu) and Taishi ( for the Dome)
Am I correct in reading the locations and directions?
