Our Airbnb host in Osaka helped us buy tickets to a Hanshin Tigers baseball game. They are rumored to have the best fans in the world, so I was really excited to go check it out. Just like fans and baseball games in Korea are different, Japan felt very foreign compared to baseball games I’ve been to in the U.S.
Osaka can, in fact, be done in a day. Had I worn appropriate footwear I really would have checked everything off my list and have been off to Kyoto for Friday, but I opted for flats and that was not the brightest idea so my advice for you if you're just here for the pictures is to wear runners and get Osaka and Kyoto done in 2-3 days on your mini-break.
