While visiting Osaka we stayed at Hotel Keihan Universal Tower in Universal City.
Towards universal City from Shin-Osaka:
Shin-Osaka arrived via bullet train, exit jr exit, take platform 15 and 16 to main osaka station. At main Osaka station take pink osaka loop line, platform one towards Universal City. At Nishikujo after exiting train transferred right across the platform onto JR Yumesaki Line (train was orange), get off on second stop called Universal City.
Steps from exiting the Universal City train station in Osaka, you see the tall tower of the Keihan Hotel with a Starbucks at the bottom left of tower. Heaven!
