... so much fun! After all that excitement was over, I got changed and went to a calligraphy class where I have to say, my skills were of that of about a Japanese year 1 standard in drawing kanji. Still even after that we did a 20 minute spin around a fashion store and hyaku en store (everything is about $1, plus a 8yen tax) and finally home for dinner! Fun fact: in japan, senior high school students and above don't have to wear helmets whilst riding on the road with bikes! Peace out :) ...

... really good. It kind of tasted like eating hot sushi.

When the balls were finished we took a stroll through the packed streets of the area. We saw everything you could imagine for sale and a few weird things. We passed restaurants selling puffer fish (fugu), pachinko galleries and karaoke hotels (we are still trying to figure these out).

My stay in Osaka was in many respects a very cultural experience.

Don't even consider bringing a ...

We left a little later on Monday and headed straight for the vegan restaurant to have a dim sum buffet lunch. Such amazing food! We've been so spoiled with great food at the vegan places we've tried along the way. After lunch, we were both stuffed to the point of food comas. Nevertheless we carried on and headed to the Akasaka Detached Palace on the other side of the Imperial Palace grounds. On the way we stumbled upon Hie Shrine and stopped to check it ...

... in Japan - when one the whale sharks passes by close to the window you're looking in from, it's so amazing it's almost unreal! Apparently the main tank holds 5400 tons of water and is 9 metres deep. There are over 300 tons of acrylic glass used for the windows and each pane is 30cm thick!

So the aquarium was awesome but you know what ****** me off? My camera. I ran slap bang into the limitations of my camera when trying to take photos of moving fish ...
