Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum

You can’t unsee all the things you’ve seen inside Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. They will be with you forever. They might not haunt you but they’ll stay in your memory. The history. The displays. The graphic photos. The voices. The clothes. The ruins. The objects. The haunting feeling. The guilt. The horrors and terrors. The scream. The hopelessness. The victims. Their faces. And the haunting […]

Dotombori Namba is the heartbeat of Osaka

Dotombori Namba is the heartbeat of Osaka’s city life. It’s a good place to do everything: eat, shop, drink or watch strangers as they go by. This area has a lot of Japanese teenagers ready to get wasted, have fun and maybe, get laid. The colourful neon lights and the annoying music from almost every […]

Japan: Gay Osaka

While typing this blog update, I am tipsy. Ok, well, in between tipsy and drunk. What’s the word? The Japanese guy I met at a sauna called Hokuohkan kept on pouring me some sparkling wine at the dinner. And to answer your questions, dahlin, “No, we didn’t do it.” We just met up at the […]

Open Museum of Traditional Houses

The Open Museum of Traditional Houses in Osaka is in the outskirts of the city but it is very accessible to the subway. From the subway, challenge yourself to walk for 800 meters. It’s easy to find it even if I didn’t see any billboards to direct me there. However, don’t ever expect too much […]

Osaka Skyline from Umeda Sky Building

I left Kyoto this morning at 10:00 and arrived in Osaka 30 minutes later. I’m impressed with Japan’s train system. I didn’t queue up. When I arrived at the JR Express train station in Kyoto, I got a ticket through the vending machine and bingo, the train arrives on time. It was just like a […]

Traditional Japanese Houses in Kyoto

I told you yesterday that I had so much of temples here and there and everywhere in this city. So, instead of going to the city and see buildings again, I decided to be a bit of historical and cultural. How did I do it? I just walked around the city, passing through streets that interest […]

Kyoto, has 1,600 Buddhist temples and over 400 Shinto Shrines.

No wonder, Kyoto, is a must-see for travellers. Temples, however, will bore you to death, unless […]
