Osaka-Kyoto Day 7: Osaka Amazing Day Pass

Our Day 7 was the most tiring, heart pumping day for me — mostly because of all the walking and because we were high up most of the time – overlooking the city from either a tall building or from a ferris wheel — x2!!!

Osaka-Kyoto Day 6: A Side Trip to the City of Nara

I have been a huge fan of Japanese anime ever since I was a kid but I come to really love Japan from our high school history class.

Osaka-Kyoto Day 1: Higashiyama & Gion @ Night

I’ve recently started blogging and in a way got addicted to it. I’ve been wanting to share my previous Japan trips but I’ve also been putting it off because I just have a lot of pictures to choose from, mahirap magtapon ng hindi basura #hugot. Japan is my favorite country to date because…mmm, there is really nothing about it you will not love.
