The monorail's elevated route provides good commanding views all over the North Osaka suburbs. The stations are themselves above average, each equipped with a vending machine cafe, WiFi, tables and seats with power points to recharge one's mobile from. My only complaint is the route...More

Osaka Monorail links Osaka Airport and Keihan Kadomashi station via Expo Park. Every time I go to the airport, I take Hankyu to Hotarugaike and take the monorail for just one stop. The fare is relatively expensive, but it is reliable and comfortable.

Osaka monorail connects Osaka Airport to Hankyu Railways in Hotarugaike and continues to Osaka University Toyonaka and Suita campuses taking people also to Expo-city and Expo'70 Memorial Park. Very quick, on-time, clean and silent, offers nice views to Osaka city from its elevated hight.
