Back to Osaka
After 8 hours of travel in bus, I’m finally in Umeda Sky Building.
While I’m walking, I remember I need to put my netbook to my luggage.
Wait, I can’t find it! 😱
I just realized that I left my handbag in the bus, OMG. I hope the bus didn’t left yet.
All of my valuable items are there. Passport, phone, wallet…my gosh!!!!
I ran really fast, hauling my luggage with me.
I’m out of breath. I really hope that the bus has not departed yet. 😭
Thank God! And the bus is still there.
I informed the staff that I left my handbag, and she let me in.
After that, the bus left. (Can you imagine, I almost missed it. And this happened in my birthday😌)
Ok…inhale, exhale..Need to relax now.
Umeda Sky building was not yet open, so I just took a photo of it.
I need to find the train station to Osaka station.Hmm…where should I go?
I asked for the direction, got lost, and followed a girl going to the subway too.
There are stairs again, and I need to carry my luggage 😫. So tired.Then walk again, I asked again, and a man told me that the train station is in the mall.
When I got in the mall, I look for a locker to leave my luggage…but the available lockers are too small. So I went to the luggage storage room instead. It cost ¥500 for 6 hours.
Time to go to Osaka Castle, and because the subway line is not included in Kansai thru pass, I bought a separate one way ticket to Osaka Castle.
The closest JR station to Osaka Castle is Osakajokoen Station on the JR Loop Line, a 10 minute, ¥160 ride from JR Osaka Station.
From the station, I didn’t bother to look at my map, and just follow the people. It seems they are all going to the Osaka Castle.
It’s a long walk….but I can see it…
I didn’t go inside, I might not be able to appreciate it. They have audio for English, but it has a schedule. When I got there it’s in Japanese language. And I’m not into history, just for photo ops.😅
I went back to Namba
Just to buy some snacks😋
I found an ice cream vending machine. It’s so cute! so I tried even though it’s really cold(brain freeze)😣
After buying some stuff, I need to go back to Osaka station, to get my luggage then to airport.
I forgot the place where I left my luggage. I got off to a different exit, and don’t know which way to go 😭
So I went back, to Umeda station, since that’s the only landmark I can remember. But it’s too far (my legs really gave up, haha)
Well, at least I was able to see the storage place.😅
I went early to the airport. I have a lot of time to spare.
I don’t want to be late too, ’cause the travel time to Kansai airport from Osaka station is 70 minutes.
Time to go Home…See you again Japan 😊
