Osaka's Expo City is like Tokyo's Odaiba (read our Odaiba's adventure by clicking this link ~ Fun-fun Odaiba).
It is a children's paradise and every mom's shopping haven.
The Expo City was a perfect stop after spending the morning at Ikeda (Instant Ramen Museum).
Using the Hankyu-Takarakuza line we transferred to the Osaka Monorail at the Hotarugaike Station and we alighted at the Bampaku-kinen-koen Station, which is a short walk to Expo City.
You would find at the Expo City the following attractions.
- Pokémon Expo Gym
- Orbi Osaka
- The Moving Animal Amusement Park - Anipo
- The Nifrel Living Museum
- 109 Cinemas
- Lalaport Expocity
With so much to do a day wont be enough to experience everything. So we decided to do only the Orbi Osaka and Pokémon Expo Gym (since my boys are so into Pokémon).
Orbi Osaka a multi-sensory experience attraction by SEGA and BBC.
The Pokémon Expo Gym was a mandatory stop for my Pokémon Trainor kiddos...
Sorry kid, Pikachu will not fit inside our luggage...
I am sure you will be able to catch them all with this huge pokeball.
More Pokémon merchandise.
If shopping is your thing, Lalaport Expocity's collection of shops will surely satisfy your cravings.
The huge Uniqlo shop and Sario shop were great places to start "pasalubong" shopping.
