Here’s a picture I took of Osaka JR West (I think). When I first went to Osaka, me and my friends were a little worried of messing up with the trains, so I was the designated subway guide. We had to take the last train to Rinku Town (the little sign that says りんくうタウン) just before the Kansai International Airport on the top-right (light blue line). We wanted to go to as many places as possible, of course, without missing our train, so this little picture helped me a lot ^^ Riding trains seems extremely complex the first time but funny enough, with a good map, it’s quite simple.
Update: Special Thanks to Flapy in Japan (Un Español en Japón) for pointing out that it’s not Osaka’s subway station, but actually Osaka JR, which are not related. Gracias! ^^
We were very late for the last train, in fact, a little too late. Somehow we managed to get on the train, but had I not been a good guide, the lady whose hair can be seen and on the picture would have killed me (three girls against one guy is disatvantage).
As I wrote about Rinku Town in Osaka earlier, it’s great and I love Osaka (more than Tokyo), though most folks around here prefer Tokyo I think. Few days ago, a native Tokyo girl asked me why I love Osaka. I’m not sure myself, but I told her it was first love, since I spent my first days in Osaka. In any case, Shibuya, Shinjuku, and Tokyo are much more impressive than Osaka. But I won’t exchange good takoyaki for that =)
