Just a Summer in Osaka (and Nara), Japan

A trip I never planned.. And times when I was grateful I didn't have a job..

Deer at Nara Park, Japan

My sister's family went to Osaka, Japan for a business trip.. 

And since I had nothing to do.. I tagged along :)

Osaka Castle, Japan

To see the Osaka Castle..

And bond with my sister!

Vending Machine, Osaka, Japan

It was my first time in Japan, and everything fascinated me..

At their food stall or van, you order and pay at the vending machine on the right, and give your receipt to the cook to get your food..

Deer at Nara Park, Japan

At the Nara Park, deer roam around freely..

To the Todaiji Temple..

At Shinsaibashi, shoppers are always busy..

Look at their hands!

And the famous Kani Doraku Crab whose legs and eyes move..

And whose name I just discovered from Wikipedia a minute ago! 

Pablo Cheesecake, Osaka, Japan

Now meet Pablo..

Cheese Tart is not the yummiest but addictive.. Cheese Mille-Feuille is nah.. 

But the Sabrel Cheese Black Cookies with cocoa and truffle.. Gosh, I want them now!!

If you can't find the Pablo shops in the city, their products are sold at the airport ;)

Osaka, Japan

When sitting down was heaven!!

My sister wanted to make use of our JR Osaka Pass, and we had to see everything in one day.. 

So by this time, my legs were dying if not dead!!

Okonomiyaki Dinner, Osaka, Japan

And by this time, I was also already calling her father-in-law, Dad! haha! :)
