Japan Trip: Day 4; Kansai Airport, Shinsaibashi

Today I’m going to Japan, to be exact to the Kansai airport. But first we stopped at a Korean gift shop at 6 in the morning! I only slept for 4 hours last night. I bought too many Korean snacks and souvenirs to bring home, it filled the whole luggage. At the airport I waited until 10.50 for departure with Asiana airlines. I watched The Great Gatsby only for one and a half hour, and for the first time I arrived in Japan.


We go to a bufett restaurant near the airport, and take a round at the mall. I go to the drug store and bought some more japanese snacks for my family. When looking around, I found out that branded stuff is cheaper in Japan than in Indonesia. It cost about 20% cheaper.


Japan is a very clean country, even they give you a plastic bag for trash in the bus. I went directly to Shinsaibashi, the 5th avenue of Japan. There’s every branded bag in Daimaru department store and they even sell ¥1 million ($10000) Hermes bag. Japanese are very rich people, most girl I see in the street wear branded bag, mostly Coach, Prada, LV. The girls are not very pretty, but they do wear a very short skirt in 8 degree celcius environment. They are hot but not really my type. Lol.


In Shinsaibashi there’s a very delicious takoyaki and ramen. You could walk for the whole day and haven’t got around it.
