Access from key areas

When you go to watch a game based at JR Sannomiya Station and Kobe Sannomiya Station (arrival at Shin-Kobe Station by Shinkansen)

If you arrive at Shin-Kobe Station by Shinkansen, Sannomiya Station is one stop from Shin
-Kobe. Sannomiya Station is home to railway companies such as JR and Hanshin, including Kobe Sannomiya Station, and Koshien can use the Hanshin Main Line from Kobe Sannomiya Station in 20 minutes without a change of trains. Therefore, it is convenient to base it in Sannomiya.

About 20 minutes from Kobe Sannomiya Station to Koshien Sta
tion Use the Hanshin Main Line

If you are going to watch a game based at Osaka Umeda Station (arrival at Shin-Osaka Station by Shinkansen)

If you arrive at Shin-Osaka Station on the Shinkansen, it is also an option to take a hotel in the Umeda area. U
meda is the image of Osaka Station. So, if y
ou arrive at JR Osaka Station, it will be the area of Umeda. When you arrive a
t Shin-Osaka Station by Shinkansen, if you take the JR Kobe Line to Osaka Station, you will arrive at Umeda area.

About 15 minutes from Osaka Umeda Station to Koshien Stat
ion Use the Hanshin Main Line

Arriving at Itami Airport

If you arrive at Itami Airport, I think Osaka Station will come more smoothly. Itami A
irport uses the Osaka Monorail. This monorail takes abou
t 3 minutes to Hotaruike Station. Take the Hankyu Taka
razuka Line to Osaka Umeda at Hotaruike Station, and it takes about 25 minutes to get to Osaka Umeda Station. It is about 40 minutes from the airport to Osaka Umeda (Osaka Station) Station.

About 3 minutes from Osaka Airport Station to Hotaruike Station Osaka Monorail Abo
ut 25 minutes from Hotaruike Station to Osaka Umeda Station Hankyu Takarazuka Line

Arriving at Kansai International Airport

If you arrive at Kansai International Airport, it takes about 1 hour and 10 minutes to get to Osaka Statio
n. If you take the Kyobashi line of "Kansai Airport Line Kansai Rapid" from Kansai Airport Station, you will arrive at "Osaka Station" as it is without transfer.

About 1 hour and 10 minutes from Kansai Airport Station to Osaka Station Kans
ai Express (It operates at a rate of three to four per hour.)

From the station to the stadium

When you go down to the platform of Koshien Station, you can see the flow of people like
this. Basically, if you arrive at Koshien Station, you can go to the stadium without hesitation.

About the Stadium

Koshien is basically a one-layer ballpark. Th
e point of watching the day game is the roof which is on the back of the back net.

Check the seating chart from the official website

Even in the evening, there is a day in front of the third base side
. The first base side becomes shade even if the roof is a place at the same time.

Join the stadium tour!

Koshien is a stadium where stadium tours are held around the stadium before games and on days when there
are no matches. If you can touch the history of Koshien and see the inside of the stadium, it will be a must-see event for stadium fans.

For details, please check the official website.

Attractions in Kobe and Sannomiya

View of Japan's Three Great Night Views from the Comet Stand

If you have a car, you can go to the observatory of Cometdai even after the night game is over. However,
because it is on the mountain, it takes about one hour one way even from the Sannomiya area. Since the arriv
al is past 11 o'clock even if I return to the hotel at 10 o'clock and leave, it is only a difficult point, but the night view seen from the comet stand is the one that it is said that it is the three largest nig
ht views in Japan. There is a charge about a 10-minute walk from the observatory, but there is a parking lot, so you can park your car with peace of mind.

A short rental car is a Times car.

Basic information

Location: 657-0105 Mayayama-cho, Sakai-ku, Kobe, Hyogo 2-2 If you enter it
in the access navigation, I think that it will be near the parking lot near the comet stand, so it is about 10 minutes walk from there to the observatory.
The parking lot becomes 500 yen once, and it pays at the time of admission, so it is good to prepare as much detailed money as possible.

Meriken Park, Harbourland

The seaside park becomes Meriken Park, and this Meriken Park includes Kobe Port Tower and Kobe Maritime Museum. As it is, if you walk towards JR Kobe Station, you will go to the area of Harborland where there is a shopping mall. So basically, I think that it will be sightseeing in the image like a walk.

cation:
650-0044 Higashi-Kawasaki-cho 1-chome 5, Chuo-ku, Kobe, Hyogo
Prefecture Location Basically, it's like looking for it on your own, but as an image, it's like walking from the Anpanman Museum to Kobe Station
. The walkway is easier to walk near the Anpanman Museum, and there are a lot of stone statues of Anpanman's characters. I
f you walk from the Anpanman Museum side to Kobe Station on such an easy-to-go walkway, you will see a Presley statue.
If you're going from Kobe Station, it's like you're on your way to the Anpanman Museum.

How to get to Meriken Park and Harbourland  From the Sa
nn
omiya area, get off at "Mitato Motomachi" station of two stations at "Sannomiya hana clock front" station (Kobe municipal coastline). We're going to Meriken P
ark on foot. The Sannomiya area is located at JR Sannomiya Station and Kobe Sannomiya Station, and Sannomiya-Hana Clock Station is a 5-minute walk from Sannomiya Station, and t
he underground of Kobe International Hall is the station. It is a direction such as Yamada Electric. So, please have the image that the station is a l
ittle far from Sannomiya which is firm. In addition, Meriken Park seems to be accessible from Hanama Station and Nishimotomachi Station, so please choose an eas
y-to-use route. If you are going to Harbourland, "Kobe Station" and "Harborland Station" are the closest.

Kobe Kitano Imankan

It is this Kitano Imankan that it is said that it goes up the slope with the image which goes up from Sannomiy
a. It is an area where Western-style buildings built from the Meiji to Taisho periods were gathered. If it is a guidebook etc., it is about a 15-minute walk from the vicinity of Sannomiya Station, but because it is a slope, it becomes quite sweaty in midsummer etc. After that, there are various places around Sannomiya Station, so you may want to take a look at the time from the actual location to this Kitano Imankan street.

Basic information

The House of
the Wind-Wa
tched Chicken Location: 650-0002 Kitano-cho 3-chome 13-3, Chuo-ku, Kobe, Hyogo Pr
efecture Hours 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The holidays will basically be on the first Tuesday of February and June. P
lease check the official website for details such as business hours, just in case. Price: 5
00 yen for adults Access Be
cause it seems to be an area with some famous buildings, it depends on where you go, but I think that the house of the Kazemi chicken will be the most symbol building, so I think that it is good in the form which aims at here first. If you go
to this area, you can see the exterior, but if you want to see the inside of the building, you will be charged.

Accommodation

In the case of watching in Kobe and Osaka, I think that I can use time efficiently if I can take a hotel in a place where it is easy to go to the venue by thinking about access by train or the transportation (bullet train and airplane)
on the way back. If it is a Shinkansen, Sannomiya has good access to Shin-Kobe Station, and Umeda has better access to Shin
-Osaka Station. Both areas represent Hyogo and Osaka, so if this is your first time, you should assume that you will get lost at the exit.

Sannomiya Area

The Hanshin Main Line connects Kobe Sannomiya and Koshien in about 25 mi
nutes. Sannomiya is an attractive location because it is easy to access even if you arrive at Shin-Kobe by Shinkansen, and even if you go outside Kobe, for example, you can get to Osaka Station in about 30 minutes by JR Kobe Line and Kyoto without transfer for about 1 hour on the same Kobe line.
