Japan ii: The first night

Osaka January 2011

Recently I spoiled myself and paid for a pro flickr account so that I can take full advantage of the service. I take a lot of photos and I’m always looking for somewhere to put them, and with the limit flickr has on 200 hundred photos, it kind of forces you into paying eventually, that is if you don’t know another service that’s free (please don’t suggest one in the comments section until at least a year from now).

With this, I’ve began to go through my various folders of photographs which I never got around to organising and sifting through. These are photos I’d always meant to go through, but for whatever reason they got the old reliable and famed long-fingered treatment that is my modus operandi.


Journeying in Japan… Part 1, Osaka and Kyoto.

Leaving Taiwan with a tinge of regret that I didn’t have more time there, I boarded my flight bound for the second leg of my summer trip in Japan. Osaka was my initial destination where I would meet Luke, a friend from my time in Changwon and one of my team mates in the football team I currently play for. Flying into Osaka Kansai airport is a unique experience in itself as you swoop down from the sky, narrowly clearing a steel bridge that connects the artificial man-made island to the outskirts of Osaka. Apart for the last few seconds of flight it appears you are about to land on water and I believe on a stormy day the spray from the waves would tickle a planes undercarriage. Heart in the mouth moment over and baggage collected I got on the first of my pocket lightening train journeys to Tennoji, a district in Osaka that was close to our first lodgings, Bonsai Guesthouse.
