[Kobe] Harborland - Mosaic Center - Port of Kobe

Since I already showed you the night scene at Harborland/Harbourland from a few years ago, thought I would do a daytime post.

Not much changed in the few years that have passed. This is still one of the most iconic views in Kobe, You can see the Port Tower (the red tower in the middle) and the Maritime Museum (the white lattice structure). Typically, you can also see some boats and ships in the harbor.

If you're walking from Kobe Station, one of the first sights you'll see after you come out of the shopping center is the Kobe Anpanman Children's Museum with Kobe's Ferris Wheel in the background, yet another iconic symbol of Kobe. I was told that each Japanese city has its own ferris wheel and that there are people who try to ride each and every wheel, because of course there are.

I heard from my Japanese colleagues with young children that the Anpanman Children's Museum is quite nice and a good way to spend the afternoon with young ones. If you're like me and do not have children, it's probably not worth the stop, but there are some cute Anpanman-themed baked goods you can purchase without purchasing admission.

This is the Kobe Port Wheel in all its glory. It is illuminated at night. If this is where you're standing, to the left you'll see the Umie Mosaic Shopping Center. There are plenty of restaurants, cafes, and shops in Mosaic to keep you occupied for a while, but, honestly, shopping is better at Harborland (connected to and easily accessible from Kobe Station).

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
