I ♡ Osaka, Japan 🇯🇵
O S A K A , J A P A N (Day 1)
Traveling to Osaka from Tokyo with our JR Pass ticket, a very convenient way to travel inter-city via Shinkansen - Japan’s bullet train. A faster way than taking a regular train that might take 4 hours or more before getting to Osaka. Shinkansen is the best transportation that Japan can offer traveling inter-city. It took only 2 hours and 30 mins for us to reach Osaka.
It’s our first time to book AirBnB, the Japanese house owner is really kind and approachable. Our room is small, a traditional Japanese "Tatami" style.
Our cute Tatami for 2 days
Exploring Osaka in 3.. 2.. 1..
Our first stop is Dotonbori. One of the popular tourist places in Osaka where you can also see the famous "Glico running man sign". The place is good for shopping and food tripping.
Dropped by @ Starbucks Dotonbori
And now off to see Osaka Castle. The park is one of Osaka's most popular hanami spot during the cherry blossom season, which usually takes place in early April. And we're glad that we are on time for Sakura season in Japan.
We're always picture ready whenever we see Sakura
And here it is.. Osaka Castle repeatedly featured as the battleground of the major wars in Japanese history. It has been popular with both domestic and overseas tourists as a historic site which has been handed down through the above-mentioned historical dramas to today.
Thank you for the camera timer for our pictures, it's really hard to ask someone to take a picture of us, but then we managed to have a good one. lol. Well, it is more important to experience it than to capture all the things we see.
