Getting to Himeji, Himeji: 9 reviews and 11 photos

FROM OSAKA/KOBE: take the JR train-JR Kobe line and heads towards Himeji. Take the 'special rapid' train and it will take you 1 hr from Osaka, 45 mins from Kobe to reach Himeji (it costs 1450yen from Osaka, 950 yen from Kobe, one way fare).
You can also take the Hankyu or Hanshin Railways (which will lead you to Sanyo Himeji Station-the rail lines are shared) but they take much longer with more stops in between. It`s about 200yen cheaper than JR I think.

JR HIMEJI STATION is also a SHINKANSEN station so you can take the SHINKANSEN directly to Himeji as well (more costly but it takes half the time than the regular train).
