Address in Japanese:
Ammona is surrounded by many convenient train stations. From Shinsaibashi station on the Midosuji line, get out from exit 6, walk straight ahead and make the third right. Continue walking down that road till you see the entrance of the club on your left hand, a little after the third crossroad you pass. There’s two purple signs reading “Ammona Infinity Space” and a big chandelier hanging overhead, you can’t miss it.
