is about to be revealed.

    Christmas Market

    The “Christmas Market” from Germany is one of the largest events in winter in Osaka.
    The event is held at Umeda sky building.

    A huge Christmas tree is decorated in the center.
     There are several shops selling folkcraft articles and German food.
    I tried a boiled sausage and it was so delicious!!!

     You can feel the taste of Germany in Osaka.
     Full of Christmas atmosphere.

    Highly recommended!!!!

    Admission Free.
    They open everyday until 25th December.
