I met them in Osaka. I almost went to the wrong airport, which would have been disastrous, because I would have had to travel 2 hours from one airport to the other. Luckily I discovered my mistake early on and went to the correct airport. YAY!!! They are so awesome - I love the above picture of them.
We stopped in at one of our favorite bars, Umiya and headed back to the hotel. Below: hotel issued PJs; I pity the fool that don't go to school (settle down Dan).
We made our way to our hotel in central Osaka. We went out for Oknomiyaki for dinner and met up with Julian . We walked around Osaka to experience the big lights, sounds and energy of the city.
Kiyomizu-dera Temple, a world heritage site and a spectacular temple. It’s on the side of a mountain with a huge wooden deck/porch overlooking the trees.
Sanjusangen-do Temple, which has about 1,000 statues.
Kyoto National Museum. The museum has a massive collection of pottery and sculpture and ancient objects from Kyoto and around Japan.
