Osaka in the Afternoon

I boarded the Nozomi 24 Shinkansen at 1217pm and got here right on time. I just love how this works here. I got into Shin-Osaka terminal and had to catch two subways to get to my hotel for the next 4 nights. I decided to take it a bit easier today for whatever reason. I don’t want this to seem like work or feel like I have to do a thing. I got situated and got wireless working in the room which actually is the best I have had yet here for free. Never can complain about the cost!

I have some things I want to do the next three days and did the usual for dinner which is cheap food from a mini mart. Tomorrow I have to hunt down some coffee since I don’t see any in the room and this hotel is not like the one in Hiroshima where they had free stuff by the front desk and lobby.

Osaka is busier and bigger and I have three full days to miss all kinds of stuff. I walked around today to just see things and ended up doing a big square i guess you could call it.

Here’s a few pictures of skylines, bridges, water, boats. Stuff I like to do.

Tomorrow I’ll get to perhaps the Osaka Castle and around there. Tonight I am going to study the map a bit and see how I can get around on the subways and just take it easy.

I have this week here in Osaka and then I’m off to Hanoi for a longer stay. It will be nice to settle in there and live semi permanently and unpack. I also need to get some laundry done.
