WHAT TO SEE IN OSAKA EXPO CITY

August 06, 2017



LALAPORT MALL, EXPO CITY OSAKA






If you are around Osaka and you are avoiding the tourist crowd without sacrificing quality entertainment, heading to Expo City is a great idea.

Outside the LalaPort mall, you can find various attractions perfect for a group date:

Redhorse Osaka Wheel
109Cinemas
Entertainment Field
Anipo
etc







We dine at one of the many Japanese restaurants in LalaPort. This tonkatsu resto is located at the 2nd level of the mall.

After lunch, we went inside Orbi Osaka attraction. It's a virtual educational entertainment park created by SEGA in collaboration with BBC Earth UK. I highly recommend Orbi cause it's suitable for all ages plus SEGA didn't disappoint for the quality and jaw-dropping virtual it offers. Overall, Orbi is an educational experience in 4D.

In less than three hours of Orbi experience, we went inside the mall to have snack. We opted for a light meal since we're still full from our lunch, thus we headed to Misdo. What I love in Mister Donuts Japan is that they offer unlimited coffee/drinks. Wish Mister Donuts Philippines can do the same.




Inside the mall, you can find food merchandise such as Calbee+ and Godiva.
When it comes to fashion, LalaPort also have the following:
ABC Mart
Adidas
MAC
JiNS eyewear
Lowrys Farm
ZARA
Kate Spade

Aside from fashion finds, you can also see brands such as:
LUSH
Muji
LoFt
Sanrio

and ...

KIDDYLAND!!!!!!


It combines Rilakkuma Store with Sumikkogurashi Shop

EXPO '70 COMMEMORATIVE PARK

Just across the Osaka Expo City mall is the EXPO '70 Commemorative Park.
It used to be the venue of 1970 Japan World Exhibition, now it serves as a sightseeing place in Osaka.

It was my first time to spot a monorail!






Crossing from Expo City to Expo '70






These photos was taken on late winter that's why ume blossoms are not yet in full bloom and cherry blossoms are not yet to be found.



Channeling the Tower of the Sun!
This structure behind me was created by Japanese artist Taro Okamoto wayback 1970 for Japan World Fair, and it is still here up to this date.

To fully experience the beauty of Expo '70, tourists are advised to visit the park in spring for Hanami
