Japan 2017: Dotonbori, Osaka

After spending about two hours at Osaka Castle, we went to Dotonburi for some dinner. Since we had JR Passes, it was a bit difficult to go to Dotonburi. To get to Dotonburi from Osaka Castle, we had to ride the train from Osakajokoen Station to JR Namba Station. Once you get down at JR Namba Station, its a long (and quite confusing walk) to Dotonburi. There weren’t a lot of signs to get there plus the underground walkway was a little too complex for day one! We persevered and we finally got there. What we didn’t expect was the extremely long walk to Dotonburi proper. Continue reading Japan 2017: Dotonbori, Osaka

Japan 2017: Osaka Castle

We arrived at Narita Airport at six in the morning. After having breakfast at McDonald’s (yes, I know, not the best choice) and getting our JR Passes, we headed to Osaka. To get to Osaka from Narita Airport, we had to ride the Narita Express and the Shinkansen. Total travel time was a little under four hours. It was a long ride but it was a great start (we got super excited about riding the Shinkansen) to our trip. After settling into our hotel and freshening up a bit, we headed to Osaka Castle.

Salamat, 2017!

2017 is truly a year to be thankful. It was a year of firsts. The biggest firsts always revolved around my dad – the first New Year without him, the first Father’s Day without one, his 53rd birthday with no actual celebration, the first All Soul’s day celebrated in a memorial park, his first year since passing. This year was a year of firsts – a year without him. This year was all about accepting this painful truth and learning to move on while not forgetting him. It is still a learning process. It is still difficult. It still hurts. I know the pain won’t go away anytime soon but I hope he doesn’t get to feel this pain and he is somewhere peaceful. Continue reading Salamat, 2017!
