Osaka 2016 Day 1: Shinsaibashi

Sorry for my cliche title! I just really want to share with you my first day back in Osaka! My last trip here was last November. I’ve only been gone for 8 months but there are so many changes already. There’s this mini J.O.L. (Harajuku) in Shinsaibashi now which I’ll post tomorrow! Last night we’ve (my grandmother, Sachi and I) arrived in Kansai International Airport at around 8:00pm, Japan time. Sachi and I initially booked this trip together but for some reason I was assigned to assist my grandmother the last minute. Oh well, I love her anyway. Straight from the airport, I went home to my family’s house in Hyogo-ken (a prefecture next to Osaka). Then I traveled back to Osaka to be with Sachi and Jessica. I have a very small budget for this trip so I’ll blog about it soon! I think it will be very helpful for most of us so we won’t be afraid in traveling.

My favourite Starbuck’s drink in size “SHORT”. Can you guess which flavour? It’s only ¥400.I bought discount tickets from Akashi to Kyobashi for only ¥890. (TIP: Find discount stores near the station. You could save ¥100 or more) Two prefectures in one day! I’ve so many photos in camera but I’ll just post them separately, I just want to update you guys right away! So sad that Jessica went back to Nagoya today. 🙁 I’ll be with Sachi ’til Wednesday. Stay tuned and follow us on snapchat (@ashleydy / @pyonstar).

    Oh! You are friends with Sachi!! Sachi is still cute as ever! Hihi! I don’t know tho if she still remembers me, probably not. >_<

    Is it true that the people in Osaka are much friendlier than the people in Tokyo? I work in a Japanese company and, I sometimes teach English with Japanese students. They often say that. I'm a bit curious. Hehe! I've been reading your blog for almost 30 minutes already. Hahaha! #helloprocrastination Reading your blog makes me want to visit Japan ASAP!
