our friends in japan had us
sight seeing in osaka
until the moment we had to
board a train for the airport.
just hours before we flew out we were
exploring osaka castle.
it was large and
as you would imagine a castle to be.
the bottom 5 floors were
full of history and replicas
showing the many changes
this castle has been through during
it's long and complicated history
(the first castle was constructed in 1597).
the top floor was a panoramic
city view of osaka
where we got to see just how
far the city stretches.
i'm really glad we took time to see
this incredible sight,
and we got to our flight with minutes to spare...
this is not a photo bomb... it's our dear friend kaori
