Kansai Day 2 - Nara

The reason why I haven't updated my blog so long is that I was home without bringing my laptop :D
Home was good as always. Good food, great companies. I miss it so much already!


On my second day of my Kansai trip, Nara has won my heart.
It's probably my have city to travel in Japan alongside with Nagasaki :D
It was cloudy when I visited there which somehow added a mysterious atmosphere to the surrounding, temples and deers.

Nara used to be the capital of Japan and its now filled with tradition and wild deers! There is legend saying that the god of Kasuga Shrine came to Nara riding a white deer, which until now believed as a sacred animal.


We started our day by having lunch near the station. This Tonkatsu is instantly became our best meal in Kansai!


There is a vendor selling deer's biscuits to feed the wild deers. Once you by the biscuits, beware to be attacked by the aggressive but cute deers lol

Nara can be accessed easily from Osaka and it's a perfect destination for a day trip.
I highly recommend this place for everyone visiting Japan :D

Kansai Day 1 - Osaka city

Last month, I traveled with my parents and cousin around Kansai area.
We stayed at New Otani Osaka which is far from the major shopping areas but we got upgraded into a room with a nice Osaka castle view! I couldn't complain about how inconvenient it was lol

I didnt take many pictures since it was pouring the whole evening as the effect of typhoon approaching Japan... T.T

Art Aquarium 2013

Last month, I got a chance to visit an annual summer exhibition at Nihonbashi.
It's called Art Aquarium, the first and only in the world.

I am not fond of fish and aquariums but this exhibition is a whole different experience. Didn't know that fish and aquariums could be one kind of art as well.
