Osaka International Airport (ITM)
Airport Hotels and Accommodation
Much of the accommodation in Osaka is noticeably gathered around the areas of Kita and the Minami, the latter of which is perhaps better known as the 'Namba'. For many, Kita and the Namba really are the only places to look for hotels and lodging in Osaka, being close to the stations and the Dotombori area respectively.
Osaka Itami International Airport (ITM) provides air access for a large number of annual visitors and offers its very own selection of accommodation relatively close by, on the Nishinakajima Yodogawak and the Umeda. Many visitors come for sightseeing and holidaymaking opportunities, but a large percentage arrive with business agendas. Osaka caters well to its visiting population with a good accommodation infrastructure, based mainly in the city, with plenty of hotels which can be accessed by car in no more than 15 or 20 minutes.
