Osaka-Nara-Kyoto-Kobe-Okayama-Hiroshima trip – 15 Oct 10

Today is our last day In Japan and we decided to have try the breakfast at the eatery which the hotel ties up with. We purchased the breakfast coupon which cost ¥500 ~ $8 from the hotel reception. The eatery is within walking distance which is further down the same street.

I like the bottles displayed at the counter

The breakfast set consist of a main dish, rice/ porridge/ bread, a side dish and miso soup/ salad or omlette. I chose grilled salmon from a choice of 5 main dish.
 Scrumptious breakfast

After breakfast, I went to the nearby convenience store to buy 1kg of Japanese rice back to Singapore as Japan normally don't sell their rice aboard.
Aint the scarf a unique way for the teachers to recognise their students?

We checked out and board JR train to Tennoji before change a train to Kansai airport. I didn't took Nankai train from Shinimamiya as I can utilised my Sanyo pass.

We reached Kansai airport at around 11am even though our flight departs at 5pm. We explored the airport first and also shopped around for souvenirs.

Are the chocolate really from these countries?

We ate at a small eatery and I ordered cha soba. It doesnt taste nice at all. =(

It's so environmental friendly here
Souvenirs shops

How can I miss out buying Royce chocolate in Japan? I regretted that I only bought 3 boxes as all are consumed within a week. =( It's cheaper in Japan as it cost ¥693 ~ S$11 per box here. I would recommend buying the souvenir after clearing the custom as it's duty free. I didnt knew it and I purchased at the departure hall which is more expensive.

It's so high tech in Japan and even the passport chop is a computer print out sticker.
