Arrived at Kansai International Airport at around 10PM. Since it was my first time to Osaka, picked up an Osaka Railway Map and asked where is the JR Train to Osaka. Using my JR Pass I was directed to a train wth Japan Railways logo from the airport. I had no hotel booking yet. Days before I left, I searched in the internet for a hotel and the cheapest was near Shin-Imamiya Station. (JPY 1500/ 750 php per night non-aircon, since it was almost winter time-December 2011 there was no need for air-con). With only the hotel address and direction, I boarded the train and change trains in one intersection. Trains in Osaka are quite complicated. There are plenty of train companies and most have the same color. It took me about 2 days to get the hang of changing trains. I would always ask which train would leave in the Customer service.
