I have been very busy and it's been a long time to write any blog posts.
I will post pictures for the places that we had been to and hope that when I have time, I will come back and write down the places that we went to since we went there in May, 2010.
This a picture that we took at the outdoor hot spring of the hotel that we stayed! Really love it! It's about two hours bus ride from Osaka and definitely worth the travel time!
We went to a zoo nearby the town that we stayed near the hotel and one part of was like Amusement park. Too bad that we need to catch the 3:00 pm bus to another places, if not, we will for sure stay there for a longer time. The picture on the left, we took it outside the Osaka train station which was 5 minutes away from the hotel that we stayed. The hotel was really good since it has a mini hot spring on the top floor and we enjoyed it very very much!
We also went to Kyoto where there's many ancient Japanese temples there. We went there by train and it's less than an hour train ride from Osaka if I remembered it correctly.
We also went to a place that's like a studio where there's streets like ancient Japan, mini live shows to watch (and you don't really need to know Japanese to watch those and you will understand what they are doing from their body language). And there's a large exhibition of ultraman in that studio and that's one of the reasons why we went there as my hubby is a big fan since he was a kid.
We also went to Nara which is also less than an hour train ride from Osaka. There's many temples there as well.
We really had a great time in Japan and I look forward to going there again!
