All these feelings coming back looking at the photos of Osaka. I met great people here. Some brutally honest, some slightly more rude but it was romantic. Romantic in the sense of a movie-like scene of a foreign girl in a foreign country. The experience is really quite unforgettable. Osaka to me was a complete contrast to Kyoto, people were less self-conscious and more rowdy. English is also more commonly spoken here but still really rusty for most. It was a good mix to end the trip off in Osaka where every night was a party. I stayed near dotonburi, opposite the notorious Namba district. Namba is known to be a thriving sex district in Osaka, where love hotels are commonly spotted. Nothing eeky or anything, the place is actually really pleasant! Just ordinary Japanese people walking about. Sex in Osaka or Japan is special! it is treated as another aspect of life totally removed from the taboo commonly found in other parts of Asia. So interesting right? That it’s so integrated into their lives and its so normal. About the night life, it’s amazeballs but really pricey. I spent about 2,100 yen on entry, and no re-entry included. 😦 Popular clubs close really early (1am) but really packs a punch. I went giraffe located along the dotonburi river and it was so packed! Heard that the crowds are pretty standard every single day of the week. Argh… i miss japan
