Kobe HarborLand

A few months ago, i attended a wedding in Kobe and whilst there, i visited Kobe Harborland.
From the website – “Kobe Harborland features an array of large-scale commercial sites, from department stores, superstores, and speciality shops to hotels.”

FYI, Kobe is about 3 hours via shinkansen from Tokyo.

This part of harborland is called Canal Garden

I like the open-ness of it all [is that a word?]

There is quite a bit of shopping to do here, remember to check out their huge Seria [100yen type of shop, kinda like Daiso but far more craft centered. Very hard to find in Tokyo].

The husband and i were there to have dinner

They have lovely zakka stores.

Though i am afraid of heights, i love ferris wheels XD

How was your weekend? i spent most of it watching NTV 24hr television with my family.
I did a bit of sewing

Do check it out if you get the chance :D

p.s i twitted this recently…this is a show in Japan where celebrities are given the challenge to live on 10,000yen [about usd120] for a month. this includes water/electricity/gas fees

Though the way they live is kinda extreme, there are some good ideas like how to cook cheap meals/save on utility bills etc. And if anything, you could always check out how life is like in Japan on a budget.
Disclaimer: u must note that the prices they give in the show are kinda extreme. i hardly find groceries that cheap in tokyo and my utility bills sure cost way way more than that XD
I would appreciate greatly if you told me what you think!

      the view was fab! but to be honest, my camera was not capable of taking many good photos at night from that height and that dark sadly.

      i think as a regular lifestyle its very hard but the show is a challenge much like survivor or amazing race. :D

      i didnt, just the ferris wheel :D
      the apts in the show are not their homes but specially for the show [hence the staff lives next door]
      i think its close to tokyo since they work in tokyo but i assume its the cheaper parts [far out of main tokyo]
