Then we had supper at the UK (University of Kentucky) café "IMG_0584.jpeg""IMG_0585.jpeg" next door....

I've heard about that UK cafe before, and as a UK fan one day I will eat there. :D

Today we went to Osaka Castle.  Look at these kids, you'd have a snowball's chance in hell of getting British kids to be this obedient....

To tell you the truth, I felt slightly nauseous when I saw a young Japanese girl follow this advice last night at about midnight...I really wish she had vomitted on the rails not the platform...

@Giles @Madame Buttonfly

if you have time, you MUST go to the osaka aquarium (kaiyukan). it's massive and amazing. probably takes a couple hours to see it fully!

@louisbosco - would have loved to see the aquarium, but we just had one afternoon free in Osaka so we did the castle and a riverboat tour.  Much more to see, so we must go back.  Now on shinkansen headed for Okayama to meet family Nakanishi.  @dylantbmayes will let you know what time we expect to arrive in Shibuya tomorrow once we have timings.

It's great to be back in Japan  ;D
