Where Are You Hyatt Regency Osaka?

This is part of the Trip Report The Visa Run Keeps Running (October 2014) which started and ended in Mongolia with these stops along the way:

Here is the overview for this report: All in Business, All for $200 And $30,000 US AIR Miles


Getting There: Unless you are staying here for a conference, do not stay here. It is not close to central Osaka. If you are here for a conference, then have your work pay the car service.


Where are you Hyatt Regency Osaka? If you’ve been keeping track of this mess of a trip, you have noticed that the only well-thought out part of the itinerary was the initial cost of the ticket which is why the post is named All in business, all for $200 and 30,000 US Air Miles.

The disoriented fun continued in Osaka. We arrived late and missed the last bus to the city. The choice was to take the train or pay $115 for a taxi. Frugal, economical, cheap, or all of the above we decided to take the train. The train required three changes, three hours, and thirty times the headache of a basic taxi ride. While I commend myself for being able to navigating the entire metro system of Osaka, the expression ‘penny wise and a pound foolish’ comes to mind.

As we got closer to the hotel, it didn’t take much for us to figure out that we would not be exploring Osaka tonight. The hotel was literally on an island and the only way to get off was the aforementioned expensive taxi or to swim for it. Fortunately, we found a place right around the corner that had great sake and sushi, allowing us to eat and drink our poor planning sorrows away.

As for the hotel, it was nice but don’t stay here unless it is on purpose. Here are some pictures.

  1. I’ll be staying in at the Hyatt Regency Osaka later this year (just using up more UR points). We probably won’t be able to check into the hotel until about 8pm or so by the time we get there. That bar with the sushi and sake looks wonderful. Would you be able to link a Google Map location of it? I’d really like to go there rather than one of the hotel bars for dinner.

    • I wish I knew where it was so I could. But it is literally the only restaurant in the area so the front desk should be able to help you find it. I recall walking out of the hotel and making a right at the first intersection and it was on the right hand side, five to ten minute walk at most.
