How are you doing today?!
Before writing on the sightseeing post in Osaka with Ari,
quickly updating this post for June since I think she needs the info tomorrow to catch the highway bus.
Ari and I went to the Sky Building 2 days ago and enjoyed the awesome views from 180 meter above!!!
Please be aware that this info is the translation of the instruction of the Willer Bus homepage.
If you are using this to get to the Willer Bus Terminal Osaka Umeda, make sure the terminal location has not changed when you read this blog!! Thanks!
OK! Here we go!
How to get to the Sky Building from JR Osaka station
“Chuo Kita Guchi” (north central exit).
It will be 12 minutes walk.
1) Follow the instruction of the signs in JR Osaka station to get to the “Yodobashi Camera”
(a big electric shop in Uemda) from Chuo Kita Guchi (central north exit).
The yellow board in the photo says “Chuo Kita Guchi”.
2) When you see the “Yodobashi Camera”, turn the left without crossing the crosswalk.
(You will see the “Yodobashi Camera” on your right at the moment)
3) Go straight until you get to an intersection.
4) Turn the left without crossing the road.
5) Go straight then you will see a trafic light on your right.
6) Cross the crosswalk here.
The glassy building on the left in the photo is the Sky Building.
7) Cross the crosswalk, you will see “GAP” in front of you.
* The bottom photo is the close-up of the above photo.
8) After crossing the crosswalk and cross another crosswalk on the left,
you will see an entrance to a underground passage.
9) Go straight of the underground passage.
10) You will see the steps at the end of the passage so go up the steps.
11) Go up the steps of the underground passage and cross the crosswalk,
you will see the “Sky Building”.
12) Get in to the ground of the Umeda sky building,
go forward about 20 meters to the right.
13) 1st floor of the Tower East, you will see the WILLER Bus Terminal.
Hope you will find it June ;)!!

Is this Robert or June-chan XD?!?!
I see Rob email address for my admin message, but it does not sound like him XDDDDDD!
5ppl with 5 different directions sounds pretty confusing (>_<)! Otsukareina June-chan! It is pretty complicated to get there ne?!?! Good to know that you know how to get there now ;)! xoxo

hye, im sorry but i just want to know,
is there any early bus runs from willer bus terminal at sky building to KIX? maybe around 7 or 8 am? i may have an overnight bus from tokyo to osaka and have to catch my 11 am flight at kansai airport.
or maybe you have any other suggestion? THANK YOU :):)
nozomi · February 27, 2014 at 3:10 am
Hi miya :)!
Planning on a trip to Japan? or you are already in Japan??
Anyways, hum is your plane ticket changeable or not?
If it is a fix ticket, then it might be risky to take highway bus that arrives in the same morning with your departure.
Highway bus can be delayed due to the weather and traffic so if I were you (unless your plane ticket is changeable), I would travel a day before to Kansai area and stay.
With your original question, there is a bus and train leaves from Osaka to KIX you can catch.
If you are taking a bus, the it will leave from “Osaka Shin Hankyu hotel”
Takes 60 minutes and costs 1,500yen.
If you are taking a train then, take train from JR Osaka station.
There is a train goes directly to the airport.
Seems to cost 1,160yen, takes an hour and 15 minutes as far as I search.
Enjoy your trip!!
