As the Skylark Sings - Osaka Part 5

The subway is the most definite easy way to move around in Osaka. However, there are many, many lines that span the city from north to south and east to west. In each subway station there are so many gates and so many lines that interconnect. One hasty move may take you to a destination far off from where you plan to be.

During this trip it was Nissa who was most alert about our subway rides. Both she and her dad worked hand in hand at figuring out which lines to take and which exit head for. After doing the Metro in Paris and London Underground last year, Nissa was more confident at discovering our routes in and out the Osaka Subways. Yeahhh....Mommy wasn't too stress and could rest a bit.

Nissa leading the way...this way Mom :)

Most subway stations are multiple levels as there are many lines that go in different directions

There's the red line and there's also the blue line....can be quite confusing at times

Once you emerge to the street level, the view could be somewhat varied

Fresh flowers for sale

Multiple level open car parks just like this one

Local eateries where Osakans chill out after a long day at work but not for us

There was a kebab place but it was closed

More flowers....but hurry up...

So...that's where we were heading to

to ride the Tempozan Ferris Wheel

The Tempozan Ferris Wheel is considered as one of the biggest ferris wheel in the world

It's a 15 mins ride in the wheel
