Hello everyone! My family (2 sons, 13 & 18) will be arriving in Kansai airport 2nd week of May. I have come up with this. I would really appreciate feedbacks if I could squeeze in more sights.
Arrive: May 9, 2013 8pm Thursday
1. 10pm check-in hostel near Kyoto station, Kyoto
2. Namba-Dotombori-Shinsaibashi in the evening.
*** Will the shops/restaurants be open? We'd probably be very hungry.
May 10, 2013 Friday
1. Osaka castle
2. Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan
3. Tempozan harbour village
4. Umeda sky building
*** I'm thinking of going around Osaka first. I'm sure I'm missing something that should be on our list.
May 11, 2013 Saturday
1. Nara Visit. Horyuji in Ikaruga-cho in the morning
2. Todaiji in Nara City. Deer Park
*** Could we squeeze in another place to see on this day? Or would it be too much to take in?
May 12, 2013 Sunday
*** This day is not really well thought of. I just copied it in a post. I'm wondering if this would be interesting for my 13 yr. old boy who's gaga over baseball...and only baseball.
May 13, 2013 Monday
1. Universal studios
2. Namba-Dotombori-Shinsaibashi in the evening
*** I don't think there is anything else we can go to except this place. My kids would insist on a whole day.
May 14, 2013 Tuesday
1. Shopping around Kyoto
*** I'm open to suggestions on this day. We aren't really fond of shopping. Although my sons would want to check out the electronic gadgets/computers stuff. Also, can anyone tell me where I can buy baseball equipments for my son in Kyoto.
Kansai airport by 5pm for 9pm flight
Thanks so much in advance!
