... amazing, but it was equally delicious! By the end of that, I was truly stuffed, and couldn't even finish my icing face (haha). I also received many gifts from Rina and Mina, such wonderful friends I have. I enjoyed the day very much. In March, Mina is going to study in Australia for a year at a university in Sydney. Being here makes Australia seem so close to home, or even home itself. Maybe I will visit her sometime.

Sunday we rode in style on the Shinkansen, or bullet train, to Kyoto. After a short bus ride, our touring started with Nijo Castle. The main palace is huge, 3,300 square meters of linked sections. You have to take your shoes off to tour it and pictures are prohibited. The rooms are mostly void of furniture but the sliding doors are lavishly decorated.

... a Western union agency, the best experience I had in Osaka was the hotel. The city are great and what's better than to stay right the hart of it. This capsule hotel that I'm staying in has 3 levels/floors divided in storage, spa/bath and the capsule it self. A awesome stay but you literally share the room with 40 others so bring earplugs.
