After a week of travelling on the high seas, we are once again back at Kobe. Just before we get on board the plane, we have some time to walk around Osaka town and then make our way to the factory outlet at Rinku.
Once we are let off at Namba Parks, your first impression would be an open space with a park. Instead it was a sprawling shopping mall with an eqaully impressive park on its roof top. Architecturally interesting, the building is built next to Namba station where we will take the train towards Kansai airport. The whole complex was developed by Nankai Electric and Takashimaya.
When it comes to cruises, it is more of a very relaxing time on board the ship and a lot of rushing happening while on shore excursion. Honestly I would love to have more time to explore the places I have visited but at least I catch the main attractions first. I would go back to Toyama if I have the opportunity to do so with plans to stay overnight on top of Tateyama Mountain, visit the UNESCO Heritage site Ainokura Gassho-style village and the Kurobe Gorge train ride.
Next trip? My Malaysia trip to Mersing to capture the Milkyway. Stay tune!
