How do you say "it takes one hour by train to get to kyoto" in japanese?

I'm creating a presentation and i've finished it all except for this sentence. I want to say that it takes one hour by train to get from osaka to kyoto in the simplest form I can. Also I want to check my sentence with anyone that can help.

kyoto wa osaka chikai desu - does this mean kyoto is near osaka?

Thank you!

A mroe litteral translation for what you had posted would be "the Kyoto it is near Osaka" So yes, basicly. However, I am unable to traslate "It takes one hour by train to get to kyoto. Here is what i can offer to you however..
Japanese Grammar mainly goes as followed. T.T.O.P.V. These stand for the following. T=Time T=Topic O=Object P=Place and V=Verb. This is like the order of Operations for japanese. As for the make sure it goes in that order. As for the words.. http://www.learn-japanese.info/ Is a highly trusted JKapanese Teaching website. 98% of the things taught there can undoubtably be used in Japan. So heres what I personally recomend you do;
1. go to the "Vocabulary" section
2. Find the words you may need
3. Paste them onto the T.T.O.P.V Template i have just given you.

"Densha de ichijikan gurai kakarimasu." = "It takes about an hour to go to Kyoto by train."

I'm pretty sure your sentence is correct, as long as you don't forget the question mark.
