Last day of the holiday. Took the shinkansen Nozomi 112 from Hiroshima to Shin-Osaka and changed to Limited Haruka Express for Kansai International Airport.
Stored our luggage in the coin operated lockers. The lockers can accommodate large size luggage bag.
Then I boarded the train back to Osaka for last minute souvenir shopping in Namba area. With the Sanyo Area Pass, I didn’t have to pay for this ride.
First stop was Shinsaibashi (心斎橋), a covered shopping street with over 100 shops. It’s one of Osaka’s oldest and busiest shopping area.
I emerged from Shinsaibashi into Dotonbori and had lunch in one of the restaurants there. Couldn’t resist taking another look at the Glico man billboard during daytime. I prefer it all lit up at night.
From Dotonbori, I continued shopping at Ebisubashi. Ebisubashi is another shopping street that has been covered since the Edo period. It was crowded with shoppers on a Saturday afternoon.
After doing all my shopping and getting all the souvenirs I was looking for, it was time to head back to the airport. At the airport, took the free shuttle bus from bus stop 1 to Sky View Observation Hall.
We had a pleasant time plane spotting at the Observation Hall before boarding our flight home.
