Osaka Travel with Kid! Mar 2018- Day 7: Cup Noodles Museum, Hep 5 Ferris Wheel & Ten-nen Onsen

We took the train to Ikeda station and had lunch at a random sushi restaurant near the Cup Noodles Museum. The signage is very clear so we had no problem finding the place. Just a short walk down the road and voila! We are here to make our very own cup noodles! There’s no entrance… Continue reading Osaka Travel with Kid!

Osaka Travel with Kid! Mar 2018- Day 6 & 7: Shopping at Lukua Osaka + Osaka Castle

We took the train back to Osaka. There’s a pretty cafe near where we were staying but that’s not where we were going to have dinner. We headed to Lukua Osaka near the Osaka station. There’s three major shopping malls here and we got a bit confused, lol~ Bought this Ettusan’s pore care wash cos… Continue reading Osaka Travel with Kid!

Osaka Travel with Kid! Mar 2018- Day 6: Rilakkuma, Soba Noodles at Arashiyama Kyoto

After all that walking, we deserve some ice-cream to replace the calories lost. Walking along the street to find lunch… Distracted by this shop~ These are so cute I almost bought one of those hanging ornaments~ Fortunately, my rational side won over~ Kyoto is, in a nutshell, a very charming place. I’m not a Rilakkuma… Continue reading Osaka Travel with Kid! Mar 2018- Day 6: Rilakkuma, Soba Noodles at Arashiyama Kyoto

Osaka Travel with Kid! Mar 2018- Day 5: Nara

The next day, we checked out of Nobu’s house and headed for Osaka Namba station. We intended to leave our luggages in the coin lockers at the east gate and travel light for a day trip to Nara, but lo and behold, there’s only one empty locker left! We had no choice but to deposit… Continue reading Osaka Travel with Kid! Mar 2018- Day 5: Nara

I’m a HUGE Gudetama fan, so definitely not missing the opportunity to visit the cafe in Osaka! It’s near Easter when we visited~ The menu. We were only here for refreshments though.

Osaka Travel with Kid! Mar 2018- Day 4: Osaka Kids Plaza

Osaka is an interactive kids museum, somewhat like a mix of our Science centre and Kidzania? All accompanying adults have to pay to enter. It’s ¥1400 per adult, but with the Osaka Amazing Pass, we bought it at a discounted price of ¥1260. Oliver is above 3 years old so he doesn’t qualify for the pre-schoolers’… Continue reading Osaka Travel with Kid! Mar 2018- Day 4: Osaka Kids Plaza
