Osaka Monorail links Osaka Airport and Keihan Kadomashi station via Expo Park. Every time I go to the airport, I take Hankyu to Hotarugaike and take the monorail for just one stop. The fare is relatively expensive, but it is reliable and comfortable.

Osaka monorail connects Osaka Airport to Hankyu Railways in Hotarugaike and continues to Osaka University Toyonaka and Suita campuses taking people also to Expo-city and Expo'70 Memorial Park. Very quick, on-time, clean and silent, offers nice views to Osaka city from its elevated hight.
