Japan Diaries: Day 6

Day 6 December 24, 2014:

Another day, another adventure. It is the second and final day of our Universal Studios Japan adventure. However, before we head to the theme park we need to refill our tummies first.  As part of our hotel package we got to eat our buffet breakfast at one of the restaurants in Hotel Keihan (Universal Tower). 

We chose the Top of Universal (restaurant). It is known as the highest restaurant in the area. It also has a panoramic view of the park and Osaka Bay. The food and ambiance is obviously western (so if you want a Japanese style breakfast, you better check out the other restaurants in the hotel). 
Breakfast time!
Going back to USJ for our 2nd day tour!
Whoa! Just googled it... Keita Tachibana is a dude!
My wife is enjoying this more than my daughter
Finally my daughter noticed!
That Christmas tree is a Guinness Record holder... Guess why...
Checking out the Animation Celebration Studios
After eating, we checked out from Hotel Keihan. On our way to the theme park, we stopped at the Universal CityWalk Osaka to watch a monkey show and also to check out the stores for some souvenir. After spending half an hour checking what the stores in the CityWalk has to offer we finally entered Universal Studios Japan again for the last time. Since we have Ella with us, it would be hard for us to ride any of the attractions together so we decided to just tour the park and take pictures instead.

He'll dance the macarena later. LOL

We left Universal Studios Japan a little past noon and decided to eat our lunch at one of the restaurants in the CityWalk. However, I insisted that we visit the Osaka Takoyaki Museum first. Luckily my wife obliged and we toured the "museum" for a while. My wife was not in the mood for some takoyaki dish though so we mutually agreed that we would eat at Ra-men (restaurant) which is also in the CityWalk. Can you guess what we ordered for lunch?

Universal City JR Station
After the meal, we purchased our train tickets at the nearby Universal City JR Station. We boarded the JR train and transferred to another JR train that would bring us to Hineno Station. From there we rode a bus back to Kameyama Residence and the rest was history. (We were so tired that we slept early).
