Day 8 - Osaka/Kyoto/Kobe Trip 2017 - Rinku Premium Outlet Osaka
After settling our storage problems at the airport, we took the train to Rinku Premium Outlet, is one station away from Kansai International Airport. It is only about 6 mins ride away or take the shuttle bus from the airport to Rinku Premium Oulet about 20 mins ride. (Look at the bus time schedule). Read more about the transportation to and fro from out parts of Osaka to Rinku Premium Outlet from the official website. Once out of the train station at Rinku, there's sign to direct us to Rinku Premium Outlet and saw a shop offering storage facilities and is cheaper than at the airport but left not many spots. I saw many tourists did not even bother to store their luggages, they just drag along whereever they shop hahaha but then we are only 2 of us with more than 2 luggages, so is a bit difficult for us to try our luck to store our luggages at Rinku first, so we play the safe mode by storing at the airport with more storage facilities. The premium outlet is just behind the ferris wheel, so just walked towards the ferris wheel and look out for signs to direct the way to premium outlet. Not everything is expensive here, saw many children clothes way below S$10, bought some for my grandnephew and grandniece. Please note not all the branded stuff are made in Japan, most are made from China, Vietnam, Thailand, etc. Had our tea break at one of the coffee house, nice bread and good cozy place to rest our tired legs. Satisfied with our shopping and well spend time before checking in for our very late flight, we made our way back to Kansai International Airport. From here, it does not make any differences to take either the airport express or local train cause only one train station away for either train. Had a nice chinese dinner at 551 Horai Restaurant at Kansai International Airport, I remember I took some photos but I cant find them in my files, not sure if I have accidentally deleted them in my handphone.
