Osaka & Kyoto Re-visited
On a wimp, given the cheap airfares that Singapore Airlines were offering in September, I seized the opportunity to get myself on a 6 hour plus flight to Japan’s third largest city. The thought of visiting Osaka over eight days (including a three day detour to Kyoto) was just overwhelming. Having not really seen much of both cities in previous trips, this repeat visit was going to be special. Apart from the photo opportunities that abounded, it was a much needed break from the daily stress.
My kids were left in the good hands of their grandparents (thank God for grandpa & grandma who were more than willing to help keep an eye). Plus, an entire week without my nagging must have been a welcomed change for the boys!
That said, I’m in the midst of sorting out my photos. And from the looks of it, it’s gonna take a while. A long while. Nevertheless, to kick off, an icon must-see for any tourist to Osaka. The Osaka Castle, albeit from a slightly different perspective. Made full use of the earlier drizzle which left a really nice, big, strategically sited puddle. More shots to follow soon….
