If I take the train from Shinsaibashi, is there English signage in the subway/train system? Thanks

    In most of the subway stations there is at least one board with English (romaji) names, although some of them don't translate all the stops. Shinsaibashi is fairly popular so there is some English guidance.

    If you do ever get confused while you are at the station, the station attendants should be able to help you. If you just tell them the station that is your destination, they can tell you what platform to go to, as well as transfers if you need to transfer.

    There also a signs in English on the train as well as on the platform. If you are not sure, ask people in the area.

    Train signs are (of course) in Kanji and Hiragana, Korean and English.
