Osaka : Rinku Premium Outlets

Continuation from here...

As soon as I arrived at Namba station, I took my bag from the locker and quickly headed to the Nankai Line platforms for the Airport Express.

I didn't plan to shop during this trip. But my friend told me there's a factory outlet in Osaka.
Ok.. I'd go. Just to check the place out.
 
Rinku Premium Outlets is located just a station away from Kansai International Airport. So I went there before heading to the airport.

Lugging my heavy suitcase, I walked from Rinku Town station. The outlet is not that far from the station, just about 5 minutes walk through the shopping mall.



My plan not to shop failed miserably. I couldn't control myself as I browsed the stores.

50% off.

70% discount.

I went crazy.

Last minute shopping uols. hehehe...






Rinku Premium Outlets is open all year round
Operating hours is from 10 am to 8 pm

Access : Take the Nankai Main Line Airport Express to Rinku Town station, and walk approximately 5 minutes
 
I shopped till the stores closed. The best thing? I didn't need to walk back to Rinku Town station carrying all my shopping bags cos there's a shuttle bus straight to the airport from the outlets!



Took the last shuttle bus to the airport at 8 pm. The ride only cost 100 yen per way. So cheap right?

20 minutes on board, I arrived at International departure floor at Kansai International Airport.
Very convenient. Check here for the bus' timetable.

 Oh I discovered that there's a surau or prayer room at the airport. Great!


It's located at Terminal 1 building, on the 4th floor. Find Starbucks there. The surau is near the outlet.

I still had plenty of time before boarding. I've checked in via web so there's no need to rush. Thank God there's WiFi at the airport so I killed time by whatsapping my family and friends back home updating whatever necessary and browsing the social medias.

About 9.30 pm, I went to the check-in counter to drop my check-in luggage. There was no special queue for baggage drop so I had to join the long queue of people checking-in at the counter. Pffttttt. Wasted my time checking-in via web.

But that didn't spoil my overall Japan experience this time. I'm so gonna return to Japan soon (well.. very soon actually!). The reason why I am so rajin updating my blog lately. hahaha..

Sayonara!
