Starting from nearly anywhere in Japan, you can take the JR line to Osaka. Switching trains in Osaka from the JR line to the Hankyu line is effortless, thanks to the clear signs in English and Japanese. The two stations are connected by a walkway. Takarazuka Dai Gekijou (Takarazuka Grand Theatre) is about a 7 minute walk from Takarazuka station of the Hankyu rail line. Takarazuka station is the end of the line so you can't miss it. After exiting the train station, you will see a building that is like a shopping mall. The first floor is a passageway lined with shops and has some stairs. Walk straight through this and come out on the other side. (If you cannot use stairs, just walk around the building by the right side. The street curves right but ends up at the opposite side of the shopping building.) Keep going straight along the street. On your right side you'll pass an area of small shoppes set below ground level (to get to them you would go down a little walkway with iron fencing). There are stores along the right side of the street, and you'll soon reach the theatre. It is a large building with ivy growing on it and has the name clearly displayed in English.
