the last 2 days i've been in Osaka!! it's quite a far trip on the Shinkansen (bullet train), but well worth it. the people are friendly, the food is delicious, and the weather is great! but i did notice that people stand/walk on the opposite side of the stairs/escalators than the people in Tokyo do... in Osaka, you stand on the right side, and in Tokyo you stand on the left! hahah
i'm also VERY happy i went to the Tower of the Sun!!! a while back, i did a post on it because i really wanted to visit it one day, and i am so happy i did! it really is one of the main highlights of my stay in Japan. i just think it is such a beautiful work of art that has such an iconic and original design. it's located in this HUGE park thats the size of small city! it is one of the most beautiful parks i have ever been to... i could spend all day there, it's so relaxing.
today i went to Kyoto/Nara! i'll post about that next :-D
