Convenient to Know! Five Select Facilities and Services around Osaka and Umeda Stations
It's common to have little "oh shoot!" moments when traveling, such as having too much luggage, or needing to change currency. Here are convenient services to utilize in such situations! This information is regarding Osaka Station and Umeda Station for people who want to enjoy their trip to Osaka trouble-free.
1. Tourist Service Center
There is a service center for foreign visitors, the Tourist Service Center, on the 3rd floor North-South Bridge in JR Osaka Station. In addition to providing information (in English, Chinese, and Korean) regarding Osaka Station City and the surrounding areas, it also has luggage courier services (for a fee). It offers same-day delivery of luggage to hotels in Osaka and to Kansai International Airport, as well as overseas courier services, so you can send off your heavy luggage to travel and see the sights without them! It also has an ATM for Seven Bank.
2. Coin-operated Lockers
Luggage inevitably gets cumbersome, so you can leave them in coin-operated lockers. There are many coin-operated lockers around Osaka Station and Umeda Station, but the largest number is in the east-west passage (outside the ticket gates) from the Central Gate to Midosuji Gate of JR Osaka Station. There are four sizes: small (300 JPY), medium (400 JPY), large (600 JPY), and extra-large (800 JPY). There are also some inside the gates, in the foyer between the first and second floors, and on the third floor, so you can leave your baggage without exiting the gate.
3. Baggage Room
When you can't find an open coin-operated locker or have large bags to leave, go to the Baggage Room. It is located next to Nippon Travel Agency TiS Osaka Sales Office on the first floor of JR Osaka Station. The fee to leave your bag there is 700 JPY per item per day.
