Hi there! After 2 years of procrastination, I am finally updating about my trip to Osaka! Yes, it might be of 2 years ago but I'll make it as informative as possible to assist in your next trip planning to Osaka! <3 

There's many flight options but I've always pre-book my flights to Japan with Airasia because the promotion fares may be reasonably cheap. It could range around RM600+ to RM800+ for a 2 way flight. 

Flight arrival at Kansai Airport is usually in the morning 9.30 a.m. so it's good for the young and energetic because you can start exploring once you touch down! I planned to drop by at Rinku Premium Outlet because there was a convenient Sky Shuttle bus service that goes directly from the airport to the premium outlet. It was also located on the way to the city and I had some time to burn before my Airbnb check-in time which is after 4.00 p.m.

You can view the Sky Shuttle timetable here:

Do not worry about your luggage during travels in Japan as locker is a common convenience that's available in most shopping outlets and also train stations. My mom brought a big ass luggage but it's all good because they have a big ass compartment locker for it too! <3

It was end of March 2015, weather was slightly cooling so it's good for travelling but could get slightly colder when it rains.

They have about 210 branded outlet stores combined from the main side and the sea side. Yes, as if there wasn't enough to shop, there is a small extension across the pedestrian bridge called the sea side.  Unintentionally, we have spend almost the whole day there going through the shops! The place opens from 10.00 a.m. to 8.00 p.m. so there's plenty of time to shop!

The place has  a beautiful view overlooking the Daikanransha - Tempozan Ferris Wheel. I'm not sure if there's a lot of pople fascinated by huge ferris wheels but I'm one of them! It's always a bucket list to ride one in Japan. I'll make it come true some day. Some day. :)

Hong Hu Jiao Zi Fang. This shop sells mostly Chinese cuisines, which is all good for mom! Mom always prefer to have something familiar to the taste bud during travels. So we opted for this Chinese Place for a meal. You can even notice it as a Chinese place from the interior. :)

We ordered the pork & mustard gravy on rice (950 yen) + a set consisting fried rice / a bowl of ramen and small chicken karaage (1150 yen). It taste fine but there was nothing to shout about. Other than this, you can always opt for western / japanese / korean cuisine or even express meal from Family Mart! <3

It was dark before we knew we have shopped too much. Hehe.. but it does get dark quite early there, say about 6.00 p.m., it was already gloomy dark. We asked around and finally took the JR train at nearby Rinku-Town Station to Teradacho Station, where my Airbnb stay will be. 

Sneak peak on purchase. Mostly are mom's but I'm happier when mom shops a lot instead of myself because they rarely buy things for herself. So I'm a happy girl when I can make her happy. :)

Stay tune for my next post on the trip!
