The German Christmas Market in Osaka
Every year there is a German Christmas Market held in Umeda (Osaka) underneath the Umeda Sky Building.
I have been each year for the past few years to look around the cute stalls and drink delicious mulled wine. It is free to enter, but kids` rides on the carousel and train, and of course food, drinks, and souvenirs are a little expensive.
This year I met up with some of the foreign mums I met through a `Meetup` group here in Kansai and we wandered around together with our babies and chatted.
I didn`t drink any mulled wine this year (one of the pitfalls of breastfeeding), but did enjoy a german sausage and some crispy bread snacks (sorry I forgot their name).
Best of all?? I spotted Steven Tyler (vocalist from Aerosmith) who was in town with the band for a concert. It was the first time I have ever seen a celebrity in the flesh!! Tres exciting :)
