Japan Day 5: Shopping Osaka

Hep5 Ferris Wheel
 On Sunday I had the pleasure of visiting Osaka City as both my buddies actually live in Osaka but commute every day to Ryukoku University in Kyoto. So I took them up on the offer of seeing their city or mostly do a lot of shopping as Osaka is truly just known for being a huge commercial metropolis.
We did do one of their attraction The Hep 5 Ferris Wheel where we could see a skyline view of the city. 


Natsumi and I were afraid of heights!

Then we continued shopping the Hep 5 shopping centre and Imp shopping centre where I found the hat I'm wearing in these pictures. Japanese fashion is soooo Kawaii (cute).

 I must say my buddy Natsumi who was my shopping partner for the day is amazing. We have similar style and we work perfectly together as we are both very slow and indecisive shoppers taking our time carefully choosing each piece we add to our wardrobes. 
Nonetheless I left Osaka with my hands full of shopping bags! 

One of my buddies, Natsumi

Awww, everything looks amazing ! Japanese women are indeed very kawaii, I would stare at them all day long.
I am also a very slow shopper, so when you'll come to visit this summer we will get along just fine :)
I would rather take my time and choose the best item for my wardrobe rather than randomly picking out an item.

All three of your look so kawaii in these pictures :) The enormous ferris wheel looks like an amazing experience- but also a bit terrifying- and I just love that hat you found! Can't wait to see what other treasures are hiding in those shopping bags.
xox,
