Flag of Japan  , Osaka Prefecture,
Saturday, August 10, 2013

Osaka was our base for the middle of our Japan trip. We had a great room through air bnb, the full Japan style sleep on mats on the floor (old school) it was great! The city was full of temples and shrines which we managed to visit a few including the Osaka castle, we also may have found the inspiration for the "teenage mutant ninja turtles" at a Buddhist temple!
Our timing seems to have worked well here too as we stumbled across a kendo tournament a few hundred kids all dressed up and smacking each other with swords very cool to watch!
Shinsekai was pretty amazing at night, the websites mentioned its supposed to be dangerous but we saw nothing like that. A lot of lights and tons of food (for a skinny race there is a surprising amount of food places)
