From namba station to Arashiyama, Kyoto

I stay at weekly green inn Namba and i wish to know how to go to Arashiyama, Kyoto with a easy way ( no need to change much station or subway which it much confusing me) and budget way too. I know my hotel near to OCAT namba station. Can we take JR from OCAT namba station. It is JR and OCAT are different station. I know from JR osaka station can direct reach kyoto station which can easily bring me to Arashiyama. Am i right?

OCAT is located on top of JR Namba, but they aren't exactly the same thing.

JR Namba doesn't do much in terms useful train transport.

Take the subway to Umeda station and transfer to Hankyu train toward Arashiyama (refer to Nao's link).

you would have to change the line at Katsura station(Hankyu Kyoto line) and take Arashiyama line at Katsura station. Actually I think the train for Arashiyama will arrive on the next platform(Katsura station)



take limited express train at platform number 1 of Hankyu Umeda station
