Hi! This is my first time doing this so please bare with me. I just returned from a two day trip to Osaka and I took Korean Air(In which I always do!) We departed to Incheon International Airport at 6:30 in the morning. The weather was perfect for flying. We checked in at the Korean Air counter and everything went well there as it always is. Anyways after checking in we went to change our Korean Won to Japanese Yen. After that we decided to go through security, we looked around the duty free area and decided that we would save our money to buy more things in Osaka so we went to our gate which happened to be Gate 19 and this is what I saw...
Korean Air A330-300 Reg. HL 7550
As we waited to board i took some other pics of some of the other planes that were passing by.
Singapore Airlines B747-400
We waited there until it was time for boarding. The boarding was quick and easy and here is what i saw from my seat
Legroom 34" Really good for I am 6 foot tall
Seat Number was 35G
The Cabin The NEW Interior Colors
Meal Service starting
Since this was a short flight they did not give us a choice on what to eat but it was good anyways.
Here is the meal itself
All the Seats have in-seat Power and here is a pic of the console
Here are some more pics of the interior.
Here is a pic in which you can see the distinctive pattern on each seat it looks nice...
The New Colors are great! Make the cabin feel FREE!!
Anyways after an hour we started our decent into Osaka Kansai international.
The landing was really good and we got to our gate in record time the time it took to get to the gate from the runway was at LEAST two min!!.
After arriving we checked into our hotel (Nikko Osaka White Avenue) Which is so NICE!
Here is some Pics of the Room.
The TV Really nice.
The View from the Room on the 15th floor
After resting for a little while, my little sister and I decided to take up the sights and go look around. We went to the Famous Osaka Castle and Hep 5 ( which has a huge Ferris Wheel on-top of the building (Amazing).
The subway system in Osaka was a little hard to understand but I got the hang of it really quickly!(Didn't get lost once). After doing Hours of shopping we went back to the room and rested for a little while and then went back out to continue shopping. Osaka is an amazing place to shop!!!!!!!!!!! After going around and seeing that there was nothing else to do we decided to call it a day and went back to the hotel to sleep. By the way one of the best Beds i have ever slept on!!!! So comfortable. The next day we woke up at 7 in the morning and went down and got our complementary breakfast. At breakfast we decided on what we were going to do for the day. Since our flight back to Seoul would leave at 5:25 we did not have much time to do a whole lot.
We decided that we could not leave Osaka without seeing the Osaka Aquarium. So we went down there and to my surprise it was jam packed with Kinder garden kids i mean a sea of little people with hats. Being 6 foot tall i felt as if i were going to step on them. After coming out of the Aquarium I saw the Biggest Ferris wheel (Yet again) in front of the Aquarium
Here is the Osaka Aquarium
And the Big( I mean BIG Ferris Wheel)
After eating under the BIG Ferris wheel we took a shuttle bus back to Kansai international. We walked around this huge airport for a couple of hours and being such an airplane freak i bought Many airplane models.
Here are some Random pics of KIX...
After sitting at the gate and getting massages on massage chairs (oh god do i love them) We saw our plane arrive at Gate 12. Korean Air flight 726 back to Seoul.
Korean Air HL 7540
The interior of this Plane is the old one but yet it still have the same pitch and the same amount of seats. This time we got the Bulkhead seats and the amount of room that you get is amazing.
My seat 28G
The flight back to Seoul was uneventful but there were a little rough patches of air when we took off from KIX (due to a lot of Rain).
I hope you enjoyed this trip report and if you are reading this last part thank you for taking your time to see my time in Osaka!!!!!! Since this is my first trip report i would like to hear what people think of it!!!

Nice trip report, it reminds me of the time I was there last Summer (I flew JAL). I think Osaka is a beautiful city, especially the area near JR Osaka Station and Namba station (Dotonbori), which gets very busy during the evening.
The biggest mistake made by most human beings: Listening to only half, understanding just a quarter and telling double.
