  • Umeda Skybuilding

    Osaka Favorites

    After a walk up at the observatory, we came down and found this little resting place just beside the building. The little "park" was bloom with some flowers and thought they were nice & pretty so took some photos of it. After seeing lots of cherry blossoms of white & pink flowers, this mix of yellow & purple flowers were definately a welcome treat...

    Osaka Favorites

    OSAKA often seems like it has no main centre and is an overwhelming maze of small streets and alleys. Although this is true - do not be shy about walking around Osaka, to where-ever the road takes you. You will always find your way back, and as safe a place as you can expect for a big city. My wife, Wendy, taking me down some backstreets to the...

  • castle

    Osaka Favorites

    The extensive grounds of Osaka Castle were impressive. The next night, friends took us to the top of a 7-story building with a rooftop entrance to a huge, red ferris wheel. High over the city's brightly lit, colorful streets, we saw tsuki (the moon) and Osaka Castle aglow with green lights. As in other cities during our trip, we were fascinated by...

    Osaka Favorites

    This is one of the wooden statues found on either side of the main entrance into Shiittenoji Temple. These statues are at the entrances to all temples in Japan. They are guards placed to ward away evil spirits. Pilgrims will often place a pair of straw sandles on the gates for good luck on their travels.

  • Kansai international airport

    Osaka Favorites

    While Kyoto represents the elegant past of Japan, Osaka being a modern city, offers the opposite Japanese experience. Osaka offers the hustling and bustling of a modern city; in fact it is so busy that it is all about making money: Osaka recorded a GDP greater than those of all but 8 countries in the world! Osaka also offers a chance to enjoy...

  • Sightseeing outside Osaka

    Osaka Favorites

    Take a short ride (35 min.) by shinkansen to Himeji and go see Himeji Castle. I really enjoyed the aquarium even though I was there during the earthquake. I think the earthquake just made it more memorable!

    The two magazines pictured opposite are two of the most popular free papers in Japan. Both magazines are particularly useful for getting up to date listings of cinema, stage and live music awards. Japanzine is handy for people travelling throughout the country as it covers the whole of Japan and features Carisma Man, but none of us have a clue...

  • Shinsaibashi

    Osaka Favorites

    ShinshaibashiFountain display in the canal at Shinshaibashi. This place is full of happenings at night and is worth a visit. The brightly lit streets cris-crossed each others like a grid. You don't have to worry about food, shopping, entertainment, busking, pachinko, clubs, bars and RAs for adults only.

  • If you want to go to church...

    There are a few Catholic churches around, but the only one in the morning is in Umeda. Kitano Catholic Church is just north of the Hankyu International Hotel. If you are standing in front of the hotel (with the hotel infront of you) the big red ferris wheel on top of Hep 5 is to the right. Walk to the traffic lights up on the left, and cross over....

  • Internet cafe

    There are heaps around, but the cheapest I have found so far is BB Planet (only the BB is in English though). It is Y300 for two hours for the open seats (`o-pen se-ki`). It has the normal all you can drink coca cola that the others do. You can`t print or use Word/Excell in all the booths, so you need to tell them if you want to use them before...

    (I`m really only adding this because I took the photo while having to wait awhile there)If you flew over on Air New Zealand and you need to go see them, they are on the 4th floor of the OCAT building (JR Namba station). They are at the south end of the building on the right side. They speak english, and are very friendly.
