The Church of the Light is a good opportunity to see one of Tadao Ando’s most famous projects in relatively close proximity to Osaka. Make sure to check the Church’s website on the days/times available to visit. To get to the Church, we took the train to Ibaraki station, which was only about a 15 minute ride from Osaka station. After we got to Ibaraki, I realized that I had forgotten to research and save the directions on how to get to the Church from the train station. Having no wifi, I had to rely on the train ticket agent (some English ability) and the bus driver (no English ability) to figure out what bus to take. Here’s what to do: outside the train station there are maybe 4 or 5 bus stalls…take the #2 bus which will loop out to the Church and back to the station. The bus driver had a handy little piece of paper showing when to exit the bus (Kasugaoka-koen stop) and with walking directions to the Church. It was about a 10 minute ride on the bus from the station to the stop, and then only a minute walk to the Church. You catch the same bus at the same stop to go back to the train station.
