The seventh floor of the main building is the viewing deck, you can see the view of the osaka city.....

We spent the rest of the day for shopping and re-visited a Ramen stall we were there 17 years ago. The Ramen stall is Golden Dragon and their ramen is still yummy......

That concludes my trip to Kansai.....

After all, I found that I like Kansai more than Tokyo, with good food, wonderful hotspring and beautiful Kyoto and Nara with full of history. I think I will visit this place again in near future......

I like the tree having partly red and partly green/brown, but my wife wants to see all red.  ;)

It just happened that my friend's son got an intern in Osaka a few months ago and I had to arrange my company's vacation in CNY time. Hence, we decided to go to Osaka again to visit him and for our company's trip.

It is ok to me to go to Osaka again after my visit just 4 months ago because the trip was rather short and there were still some places that I wanted to go. We arrived at Osaka in the afternoon and we spent the evening shopping. I did not shop around Namba area last time except those department stores. This was a good opportunity to pay a visit.

As requested by my colleague, we went to Universal Studio on the second day. Harry Porter was the only spot built in there. The ride was quite fun and interesting but you need to make advance booking for the visiting time.

Other than Harry Port, Spideman is another good ride to take.

The second day we went to Arima (有馬). This is an ancient town close to Kobe but you can get there by an hour bus at Osaka Train station. This town is well known of its Onsen (溫泉). Once the concubine of Toyotomi Hideyoshi (豐臣秀吉) lived there and made this town famous. The third picture is a statue of her. Her name is Ne Ne.

The town was well preserved. You can see the old house in Edo era.

Second picture is the place where Ne Ne lived. Third picture is the well of the origin of the hot spring and the forth one is the modernized area of the town, which is close to the public transport.
