Osaka sunset & outlet mall shopping

September 4, 2015

We spent our last full day at an airport hotel in Osaka. We were leaving the next day for Seoul so we packed our bags and stayed near the Kansai airport. We had nothing to do all afternoon so we decided to go to the Rinku outlet mall. We took the train and got lost a little looking for the mall. We walked around the mall a couple of times but it felt like we were back in North America shopping. It was a mixture of Japanese brands and International one's but the prices were pretty steep. I just bought a skirt and a toque before leaving the mall.
The outlet mall was very close to the waterfront. We walked around the waterfront and we witnessed a very dramatic sunset. It was the best way to end our Japan trip!

P.S. I had the best experience when leaving Osaka airport en route to Seoul, Korea. I was lining up for security check and I was taking off my boots when the airport security guy handed me slippers. He was very quick and I was so stunned that they give you SLIPPERS! No one does that ever! I usually walk around barefoot (eww!) when I go through checks when I wear sandals or with my socks on.  It was amazing!

Wishing you all a happy and safe Labour day weekend! 


  1. I love how the sunset looks behind that gorgeous waterfront!

  2. love your tidbit at the airport en route to Seoul. When Yangkyu and I were planning our Japan/Korea trip (which never happened) we were thinking of going to Seoul from Osaka as well. If we ever get a chance to plan a trip there again we'll definitely have to consider the osaka to seoul route!

    1. I hope you get to do it! It was the perfect route since we were in Osaka already!

  3. Wow, such a different water front, but so pretty and calming.
