may 13th - may 14th (japan)

It doesn't feel like I'm in Japan at all...

So yesterday I landed in Narita, Japan at around 3:30pm after spending 13 hours on an airplane. Because of the Swine flu business, we had to stay on the plane for a little while longer while people came aboard with thermal cameras and a face mask for everyone.

After going through customs and picking up our luggage, we went on another plane (about a one hour flight) to get to Osaka. Woo.
Except it wasn't all that bad. We had crazy seats that can completely recline into a bed position and everything inbetween. It's too bad that the flight only lasted about an hour.

We stayed at a hostel near a subway station, and I definitely slept well that night.

I woke up at around 6am, ate some toast, took a shower, watched some people going to work/school through the window, and then we went off to the core of Osaka.
The place is called Namba, and it houses some touristy locations like the giant moving crab display, and the Glico man.
We also ate some delicious Okonomiyaki and Takoyaki.

At the end of the day, we picked up our luggage and headed towards Kyoto (where I am now). We're staying here for 4 nights... Tomorrow, we either go feed deer at Nara, or laze around in Kyoto and look around the area. For me the last two days felt very hectic.
