Osaka
Osaka is the center of Japan’s Western region, known for being a hub of gourmet cooking, the nation’s water capital and the “Vice President” of Japan’s cities. A symbol of the metropolis, Osaka Castle is a must-see attraction that is representative of the continuous historical changes in the city. Universal Studios is another destination well worth a visit, with its Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Minions and Sesame Street attractions all waiting for a fun-filled family visit. If you’ve got a small child in tow, fun awaits at the mysterious underwater world at Osaka Aquarium, or the nearby Tempozan Ferris Wheel from the top of which you can get a beautiful view of Osaka Bay. In terms of shopping, Osaka Umeda District in the north, Namba in the south, along with Shinsaibashi and Midosuji offer endless stores and malls to discover. Be sure to visit a couple times in case you miss something your first time in Osaka.

E31***01 Today me and my family arrived in Osaka in Japan. It was awesome to be in a new city! We checked-in and had a nice sleep for tomorrow’s great adventure. The next day, we had our trip to The Universal Studio. It was very crowded and we had to wait for a really long time. After we went inside, we started to have fun. The roller coasters were exciting but it seemed scaring to me. It rolled and twisted like a enormous dragon fling over the sky. I was little then so I was scared to death. Don’t mind though, it was 7excellent. For another thing to say, was the Hogwarts Castle. It was huge and amazing! We quickly went inside for the games. It was a ride in the castle and you could see the Harry Potter’s scene inside as if you were in the story! After the wonderful ride, we went in a store full of the “Harry Potter” things, I loved those wands and the Hogwarts school uniform! The roller coasters worth a try! The day ended quickly, but I loved it though it’s a little bit bored during the waiting time. In the afternoon, we went back to the hotel. We were very tired so we had a sleep. After the sleep, it was about 8 o’clock, so we went to the underground market, hunting for food. We found some dumplings there. The Chinese food was so delicious! We were so surprised at the Chinese food! We also ate sushi, the local food in Japan. Through the all day’s trip, we were satisfied. It was a fabulous day!A little suggests: 1.If you go there on summer, remember to take umbrellas and fans, you will be really hot waiting for an hour. 2.Make your plans before going. For the truth, you can’t play as much play equipment as you think. Welcome for the questions, I’m looking forward to answer them.

Aquarium
乐吃购The Osaka Sea Playhouse is world-class, with 5,400-ton giant cisterns and 15 small cisterns, which contain 580 species of marine flora and fauna, up to 30,000 species. The star animal is whale shark, and there are many related goods in the museum, and the healing sea animals such as penguins, mink and jellyfish are also seen. Although the itinerary of the Ocean Pavilion may sound more suitable for children, it is also very good to insert this attraction to teach and enjoy after a lot of historical knowledge and bustling experience. It is recommended to arrange a 2-hour tour and remember to add another traffic time.

E26***17Lovely walk from the train station to the castle. Take about 15-20min from station exit to the castle main gate. Entry was ¥600 per adult ticket. Suggest to take the lift from ground floor up to the top first then work your way down each other floor with some osaka history.
