Japan Trip 2011 - Day 5 - Osaka and then back to Tokyo
Day 5 in Japan i decided to visit Osaka which is only a 30 minute train journey from Kyoto, saw a giant size chocolate bar on the side of the tracks, awesome advertising.
Got to Osaka and it was damn hot, really hot for this Englishmen who's use to cloudy skies, in Osaka i got super lost, everyday in Japan i got lost but this day i got seriously lost, was meant to got to the aquarium bit got ton the wrong train and when i got to the end of the line i could see where i wanted to be across the river and trouble was when i finally managed to figure out what happened it was a hour until the bullet train to
Tokyo left. So i played some awesome Gundam arcade game (which i sucked at) and generally moched around the Osaka station trying a few bit of foods of street vendors and wondering being amazed by Japan.
Got back to Tokyo in the evening after my last ride on the bullet train where i got to drink a coke in some sort of can/bottle combination and had a moch around Akihabara which i would be doing properly the next day. Not sure what the satellite crashed in the building was about, heard something to do with Stains;Gate but was getting alot of attention.
Last thing at night on TV was Danny Choo's Culture Japan which was a great watch and it was set in Osaka! Knew Danny was from the UK and only ever heard him speak Japanese so was really surprised to hear is his English in an London accent.
