  • Post Comments:0 Comments

I always wanted to visit the Namsan tower or N Seoul Tower, I did not have the chance to visit it when I was in Korea 6 years ago. Therefore, I told myself for this trip I have to go and take some photos there. Based on my memory I thought that getting to Namsan tower is easy, but it was not. I wanted to go up to Namsan tower via cable car, however, after researching on ways to get there and various comments from others, I decided to take a bus up instead. In this post, it will cover the transportation, where to purchase the ticket, redemption and what is there to see and recommendations.

[Trip] Japan, Osaka – Half a day to Sumiyoshi-Taisha and ride on “Chin Den”

Decided to head out to the suburban area of Osaka as we are not staying in the city centre. We stayed near to this ward called Sakai. Not many people have heard of it, however, if you have been to Osaka a few times you might be interested to visit this place. It has always been on my go-to list because of the photos I have seen online. Recently, it has garnered some attention due to the advertising that is done for its annual new year event.

One of the reason to visit Sakai ward would be to ride on the Chin Chin Densha which would pass by the residential area and the older district of Osaka. In this post we will be looking at how to purchase the tram pass and some of the places to visit.

A day visit to the UNESCO World Heritage site, Shirakawago, the famous traditional gassho-zukuri farmhouses and some of which are more than 250 years old. The annual lightup event during winter was the reason we were there, we explored the little village after we got our tickets to the observatory deck.

However, if you are unable to get a ticket up to the observatory deck, you can still walk around the village and get up close to the light up gassho house at night.

I have listed down on some of the place of interest to visit, not to be missed photo-taking spot and where to have your meal when you are hungry and need to replenish energy.
