Getting from Nara to Osaka Castle

We are staying at Business Hotel Nissei in Namba, will take the Kintetsu train to Nara. From Nara to Osaka castle, we go back to Namba, then take the Sennichimae line from Namba to Tanimachi 9-chome, then change to the Tanimachi line which will take us to Tanimachi 4-chome station, then walk to Osaka castle. Is this the way to go?

Have tried 'hyperdia', not having much success.

Thanks for any help.

From Nara to Osaka Castle, the standard way is to take the Kintetsu Rapid (快速急行 Kaisoku Kyuko) or Ltd Exp (+500 yen surcharge) to Tsuruhashi (鶴橋) then JR Osaka Loop Line to Osakajo Koen (大阪城公園). You may return to Namba using the Osaka City Subway Nagahori Tsurumi-ryokuchi Line (長堀鶴見緑地線, color coded light-green) from Osaka Business Park Station to Shinsaibashi, then Subway Midosuji Line to Namba.

Osaka castle park is so huge and there are some ways to Osaka castle donjo/main tower where many tourists go!!


from Kintetsu Nara station

hop off at Kintetsu Tsuruhashi station then take JR loop line then hop off at Morinomiya station or Osaka jo koen station!! you will go back to Namba afterwards so maybe you should hop off at JR Morinomiya station!!
