German Christmas Market

Posted In: Christmas | Japan | Osaka | Travel

I’m so happy to FINALLY be sharing this post with you guys! Osaka was our last stop during our Mainland Japan Trip on December 2013 (yes, this post is 2 years late, lol)!!! It took me forever to blog about this trip (as always) and when it was time to share this adventure, it was already Spring. So, i decided to postpone it until next Christmas and then I forgot! We were in Taiwan last Christmas, so it totally slipped my mind. Now, without further ado, here is the German Christmas Market located at the Umeda Sky Building.

The German themed Christmas Market is one of the biggest Winter events in Osaka and we felt super lucky to be able to experience this! We saw a flyer in the MRT and got instantly excited, since we were already planning on visiting the Umeda Sky Building. There are little stands selling Glühwein or mulled wine, German beer, giant cookies, grilled sausages, candied nuts, ornaments, knick knacks and so much more! It was a legit German Market because most of the people working the stands were actually German!! Cool, huh?
