The Kinosaki Marine World is an aquarium united with nature where the Japanese sea view unfolds before your eyes.
Not only can you enjoy the sea beings in each area, you can also enjoy many exciting shows.

We got time to visit this place or because we don’t want to do public hot spring because is so hot like 35 degrees, I guess.

Kinosaki (城崎町) Hyōgo, Japan.

IMG_1401

Finally, we had a break for awhile. And also my advance gift for my birthday. Relax and Enjoy the heat of the summer.

Kinosaki (城崎町Kinosaki-chō) was a town in Kinosaki DistrictHyōgo Prefecture, Japan.

Kinosaki is famous as a resort area, with onsen (Japanese hot springs). In 1913, the writer Shiga Naoya came to Kinosaki and stayed there for three weeks. Kinosaki provided inspiration for his short story, Kinosaki ni te or "In Kinosaki".

There are seven public onsen bath houses in Kinosaki Onsen. Tourists staying in most of the ryokans (Japanese traditional inns) in Kinosaki can receive a free pass to all seven. It is common for tourists staying in Kinosaki Onsen to walk around in yukata, this saves them having to change into their own clothes every time they use an onsen.

A feature is the fountains in the square where mesh bags of eggs can be immersed and boiled while you wait. There are several ashiyu foot baths with running hot spring water where one can sit by the edge of the road and relax while soaking one's feet. A ropeway at the far end of the street transports visitors to the top of Mt Taishi, which has spectacular views of the town and Japan sea coastline.

The Sanin Main Line provides a JR rail connection to Kyoto, and direct trains to Osaka are available via Fukuchiyama. Direct limited express trains take about 2.5 hours from Osaka to Toyooka.

It will be better if you will come here in the winter season. But, the snow here is thick. We are to buy snow tire now. So, that we can drive there.

We are a bit early so, we have to look around the area and we also need to eat lunch as well.

So, good and tasty the crab and shrimp, I love it!!!

2

Now, we are check-in the hotel. Morizuya Ryokan is the name of the place we stay. Japanese style room and clean of course.

3

I can't imagine this is quite a lot for us. Anyway, the price of this place is worth it.

4

We have time to attend the "Ubon Festival" and wearing Yukata clothes. We watched the fireworks display for summer and it held only weekdays.

5

What I like about this place. They have family onsen but, it will only start 6:30 pm and will close until 11 pm. Lovely place. Anyway, perhaps I would say this place is nice location center of the streets of shops and restaurant. And we had time to go to the Kinosaki Marine World. I will separate the post for that. But, Of course, I will post here the video for you to see.

HarborLand, Kobe, Japan

DSC_2477

Our first time to go here, One of my japanese friend invited us here.

Facing Kobe bay, the commercial complex of shopping mall, restaurants, cinemas and other amusement facilities, hotels and wedding center Kobe Harborland is truely a pearl lying on the edge of land, shining dazzlingly over a large space of waterfront at night. In fact, the complex originated in the former site of the Japanese National Railways Minatogawa Kamotsu Station. Kobe General Children’s Center was the very first facility appearing at Harborland. The year 1990 remarked several important events held in Kobe Harborland including the first gas lamp lighting event at Kobe Gaslight street, the opening of Kobe Harborland General Information Center, Kobe city General Education Center and the Brick Warehouse restaurants. After the construction of Harborland Event Square Hanekko Hiroba and the pedestrian bridge Hanekko was completed in 1991, Kobe Harborland was officially opened as a town, a veritable cultural hub linking the land and sea in such a active and modern commercial complex, leading to the open of a series of important facilities including of Hotel New Otani, Kobe Seibu Department store, Duo Kobe, Augusta Plaza, Hankyu Department Store and Mosaic.

From our house to this place, it took us 1 1/2 hours. And, our kids happy to have long trip they are watching their favorite cartoons Totoro and Doraemon.

Look at the view is so gorgeous, and the big cruise in the other side of the port. We go early ’cause we know that it will be traffic because it was Golden Week Holiday.

Mosaic and Canal Garden are two largest shopping complexes located in Harborland. While Mosaic takes advantage of lying along the waterfront, holding aloft the signboard outstanding from the distance and featuring a complex of boutiques and restaurants, Canal Garden owns the Hankyu Department store, Sofmap electronics tore and sports store. The brick warehousescreate an outstanding construction in the middle of Kobe Harborland by the impressive classical architecture. The houses used to be used to store cargo from ships around the port before becoming home of several restaurants. An other remarkable construction, Hanekko pedestrian bridge comes over the little stream by the event square Hanekko Hiroba. Hanekko is the pioneer in applying the European style in construction which wings can be lifted up to allow ships to pass. The bridge will be extremely splendid at night by the illumination of about 1700 light bulbs.

A happy kid because we go inside the shops of the Anpanman Museum but not the Museum itself. Because we are early so, we had time to stroll around the vicinity.

4.jpg

Here’s the main reason we went here to eat Brazilian Food. It was “meat all you eat”. It was terrific and delicious food. The name of the restaurant is Brasiliano, nice place the staff are from Brazil but they can converse in Japanese. I just love the beans and the sauce on it and i don’t know what does it called, but great food. Very friendly Staff even though it was so, many people they can still manage not to let the customer waited too long.

5

We had time to ask the staff to take us pictures. Then, we stroll outside to look the scenery. The big cruise at the opposite side was already sail away. I told to my husband once He had long vacation we should try to do Cruise Trip. Well, put in the family bucket list.

6

A great thing we went to the side of the Mall, we had time to go the Kawasaki and Marine Museum. Kids enjoy it so much. Of course Kawasaki is all about motors, history and different kinds of motors from small to big one.

7

While, the other kids are still enjoying the Kawasaki Museum, we went to the Marine and take pictures with my little princess. Different ships, boats anything in the water transport.

IMG_0551

We just recently watch this in the TV. The Time Capsule, 1987 – 2017 – But, they didn’t show what’s inside the capsule.

DSC_2571

While walking, we saw this man doing some balloon art. Then, my girl she don’t want to go until she requested to make anpanman balloon. So, cute right.

Anpanman (アンパンマン?) is a Japanese picture book series written by Takashi Yanase, running from 1973 until the creator died in 2013. The series has been adapted into an anime entitled Soreike! Anpanman (それいけ!アンパンマン?, Let’s Go! Anpanman), which is one of the most popular anime series among young children in Japan. The series follows the adventures of Anpanman, a superhero with an anpan (a bean-jam filled pastry) for a head, who protects the world from an evil anthropomorphic germ named Baikinman.

Heavily merchandised, the Anpanman characters appear on virtually every imaginable children’s product in Japan, ranging from clothes[1] to video games to toys to snack foods.

Well, there’s a lot of character in Anpanman Cartoons. Babies or Toddlers love this Anpanman cartoon. Just check this link here.

Adventure World

Yeah, sorry for the late post. We have been busy for the past days, now is the time.

IMG_9160

This is our first time to go here. Suprisingly huge and more rides. It’s a Combo! in a one Place:  Zoo, Marine and Park, that’s great right.

Tickets

Not that bad for the fees right… as I told you is a COMBO! What we are looking forward was the Pandas. They are so cute and adorable.

IMG_9165

But, we are a bit late to have a ticket to up close encounter of the dolphin and sea lion feeding them, Sold out ticket oh that was a separate fee for that special encounter. So, we just look around what else we can see we try the Safari by train because is free. But, seems it will be fun by walking, so we also tried.Map

It was a really huge place one day is not enought, we didn’t even ride the park rides like roller coaster, ferries wheel, etc. But, for us animals are enough for now, learning stage for my little princess to know the animals and see in person than in the tv or books.

We tried the free train for the Safari, but much more fun in walking at least you can stop and take a selfies with them hehehe…

safari

We didn’t see any of the shows, but only the dolphin show.
