Universal Studios Japan Access

To our beloved guests, here is the quickest and easiest way for you to reach USJ!

From the hotel, walk directly towards Nippombashi Station. Inside the station, please look for the Kintetsu Nippombashi Line which is below the Nippombashi Subway Station. Yes, you imagined it right, it is a subway within a subway just beneath the station so you need to go down a little more.

Take the train going to Nishikujo. Upon arrival, you need to change from that station to the train that goes directly to USJ and alas! You are there! So fast and easy! Take note that Nishikujo station is a JR Line. So from Kintetsu Line you will be changing to JR Line.

Same directions also for going back – ride from USJ to Nishikujo then Nishikujo to Kintetsu Nippombashi. But, upon returning, the name Kintetsu Line will be changed to Hanshin Line. (Do not be confused, it is the same train line but only the name was changed due to an unknown reason.) Just be sure to get your way to Kintetsu Nippombashi which is the nearest station to our hotel.

For better understanding, take a look in the short diagram below:


19-minute ride for ¥510


25-minute ride for ¥510

There are also many useful pictures and directions inside the train stations to help you get there.

Thank you so much and Enjoy!



In case of EMERGENCY (Health-related Problems)

We in Hotel Naniwa, wants you to have a safe, fun and memorable travel here in Japan. Here are some guidelines on what to do when you get ill, sick or when you need medical assistance.

1. When you’re feeling sick…

There are different types of medical institution here in Japan:

  • Normal clinics, if you need doctor’s assistance
  • Emergency Hospitals, which is open 24hrs a day, 365 days a year
  • Pharmacies and drugstors, if you don’t need doctor’s assistance

If you need medical assistance, you can ask our front desk and describe your symptoms for referral to a hospital or clinic.

If you are outside, you need to find the nearest TOURIST INFORMATION CENTER nearby. Most of the places here in Japan, especially the tourist locations have Tourist Information Center to assist and help you.

 For guests who have Medical Travel Insurance, you can contact your insurance provider and they will assist you to their medical partners.


You can check on the list below for medical institutions that accept foreigners.


Going to clinics requires you to fill up some medical forms, so better go to a hospital or clinics that can speak your preferred language. The language here in Japanese is almost limited to Japanese but there are some institutions that accommodate foreigners.

Most of us are not expecting going to hospitals due to unexpected illness, before the treatment, you should ask for the general estimate and for the cost.

Since language is limited, you need to listen carefully for the diagnosis and what would the results will be.

Some major hospitals accept credit card payments but most of the clinics are cash basis only. Please be informed that medical service fee and medicines are paid separately.

 2. For EMERGENCY situations…

You can call an ambulance, dial 119.

But if you do not have a phone or a way to call, you can ask for help to a nearby Japanese person to call for an ambulance.


Just show this phrase and they will help you immediately.


AED or Automated External Defibrillator.

It is used for people who collapsed while out of home or who are having heart problems.

There is an illustrated instruction when you open the device.

You can find AED’s in the airports and most of the public places everywhere.



  1. Lastly, our BEST advice is…

While travelling, do not overuse your body. It is fun to travel but we need to listen to our body’s need. We eat when we get hungry, we rest when we get tired and we sleep when we get sleepy. In that way, we can reduce the risk of being ill abroad and to enjoy the whole period of your trip. But in emergency cases, without hesistation, we in Hotel Naniwa, is always ready to help you.



Hope that this article helps you.
