From the Land of The Rising Sun #2: Osaka
First things first. I changed my room’s light bulb! Okay, that was to be second but I’m really happy; I don’t work well in white light and now that I have a more natural yellowish one, yeah! Then let me apologise for leaving all of you hanging on this series…won’t happen again. Computer trouble got ahead of me but I should be okay now.
I loved Osaka…still do; it’s like being in reverse Tokyo. You keep right on escalators, they have their own unique dialect; they are like rebels in a good, ‘youthy’ way. People are more friendly (I think)…more laid back I’d say than the guys up North. The Osaka castle is awesome…impregnable they say; I watched Samurai X (Rurouni Kenshin) as a kid so hearing about the Tokugawa Shogunate and the Shinsengumi in real life was a dream come true. I also tried my first roller-coaster at Universal Studios Japan. Yeah, that was something; I’ll call it ‘flying by force’, because three quarters of the time you’re barely even sitting on the chair. I met my cousins that side; that was nice… Oh, and also this super hot girl; … What was really weird was that I felt like I had been living there for quite some time; like I knew all the people around, the streets… I fit in there quite easily! Yep, Osaka’s on my ‘places to re-visit’ list.
