Arcades and shopping!! It can get out of hand if you aren’t paying attention!! Damn you, Japan!! Just take my money!!

More Japanese oddities, lol. Photo opportunities everywhere. Odd tools and utensils that are handy, but not necessarily needed. Even the construction signs and cones are cute. After visiting Japan, Mike wants to move there. Makes sense, it’s amazing there.

Fuji-Q Highlands had some pretty good food! Was not expecting that from an amusement park! The bakery had the best croissants I’ve had since Paris... literally went back for 3 more

Fuji-Q Highlands. Small, but had some really nice coasters.

Since we were staying by ShinOkubo, we figured we had to have some Korean food. Overall pretty good even though we prefer Japanese food. Can’t go wrong with fried cheese, be it savory or sweet!!! The fried chicken, bob chin, isn’t as good as at home though. It was probably least favorite food of the whole trip.

Sooo crowded. It’s organized in bigger stations, but in smaller ones it can be downright scary. We were lucky it wasn’t so bad when got there, as you can see on the last picture.

Some things we saw every day when we were in Osaka, staying by Shinosaka Station


2

Only in Japan. Pull a tab and the label becomes a ribbon, lol.


2

Wandering through Dotonbori trying to figure out what we were in the mood to eat. Osaka has such a different feel than Tokyo

We’ve been to Japan 3 times so we figured we might as well do a Japanese photo booth (プリクラ) at least once! I let Tiff choose when we were in the Tempozan arcade and it actually wasn’t a sticker sheet but a opaque plastic sheet! We just followed the instructions and this is what we got.... tell me I’m pretty!!!! 😂

Next to the Kaiyukan Aquarium is Tempozan Ferris Wheel and Mall. We were tempted to go on the Ferris wheel and go to the petting zoo (they have exotic animals!!!) but the arcade was calling us, 😆. Maybe next time!!

Last exhibit at Kaiyukan near the exit/entrance have more peculiar fishes.

🇯🇵🌄A beautiful view from the elevator lobby of a Japanese hotel resort called Harmonie Hotel located in the Gifu area. This hotel caters to couples and parties for mainly events related to weddings! They have their own wedding chapels and chambers! The view is the best thing!🌄🌇♥ #japantrips #harmoniehotel #gifu #onlyinjapan #japaneseweddings #onsen #japanlife #japansinta #instaba #japaninstabai #japanesemorning #japanesevacation #japanesearchitecture #nippon

#japantrips #onlyinjapan #japanesevacation #japantravels #gifu #japanesearchitecture #tokyo #nippon #skyscraper #photography 🇯🇵🏙What is it? It is a tower in Japan! The architecture was amazing and it looked like an episode of Bleach the anime manga where Ichigo met Zangetsu for the first time! Who knows this anime??? You could understand! 🤓🇯🇵♥

Seals just chilling and eating snow. Below the seals it was dark and cold with different species of sea life. Really cool set up.


4

These crabs 🦀 make you think maybe sea monsters do exist... and yet made me kind of hungry 😋. Japanese Spider crabs, タカアシガニ


7

Honestly one of the biggest tanks we’ve ever seen. Sharks are all over it, even laying around on the bottom! 🦈


1

They even had dolphins! Even caught one leaving a streak of 💩 poop! 😂


1

At Kaiyukan there was an area with fish that inspired characters from Disney’s Finding Nemo and Finding Dory!


1

Whale sharks everywhere, even at the adjacent mall Tempozan Harbor Village!! I honestly wanted a big plush whale shark since they were my favorite shark as a kid. I settled for a pen, keychain, and beanie plush instead.


1

It’s all about the whale sharks at Kaiyukan.


3

We go to an aquarium almost every place we visit. We’ve been to 11 different aquariums/sea life parks! This one is the huge Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan!! They are known for having whale sharks!! This would be the first time we’ve seen whale sharks in person.

What kinda crazy stuff are the Japanese up to?? 😆. This drink is kept at -5° C and when you open it up, it starts to freeze up! It’s pretty refreshing, even without the ice in it! Only a few of these machines are spread around Japan.


5

KFC and Wendy’s are superior in Japan. Actually, so is their McDonald’s. Japan 3, US 0.


1

Hiroshima’s Maple Loop Bus is good way to see the major site’s around Hiroshima. Not only is it cheap and convenient, it’s free if you have a JR Pass! Just make sure you pay attention to the timetable. I didn’t notice they changed it for season and we had to take taxi back to station 😆. Poor little Japanese taxi with 3 big Americans in it 😂


3

Not a bad way to share some really good steak. $150 for about 13oz of steak and some cheesy potatoes.


5

Hiroshima style okonomiyaki in Okonomimura! Only way to do it right when you visit Hiroshima.

Interesting fact. While this looks like Hiroshima Castle, it is in fact only a reconstructed tower and walls of the former castle. You can see the remains of the original castle after it was destroyed from the results of the bomb in 1945. There is a Shinto shrine within the compound so we visited that while we were there. Hiroshima Castle is also known as Carp Castle so you can see carp motifs all over. That’s we were got the omikuji (fortune) in the little carp.

Ueno Castle, right by the ninja museum... and a random ninja. Saw two beautiful and cool things that day. Maybe it was worth getting lost, 😆


3

Saw some cool stuff in the ninja house and Ninja Museum in Iga. Definitely wanted to see this at least once.
