For the past week I have been traveling in Japan and am currently in Osaka. I started my trip in Tokyo, which had the big city feel of Chicago combined with the lights and madness of Las Vegas.
From there I headed to Mt.Fuji. Even though I knew it was too cold to hike the tallest mountain in Japan, I was still hoping to get some nice views from town. However, the weather had another idea and it snowed the entire time I was there. The sky was filled with dense snow clouds and the ground was covered in a fluffy white blanket. Despite the freezing temperature I had a great time since I rarely find myself in snow filled situations.
This brings me to Osaka, a city just as lively as Tokyo but on a much smaller, more manageable scale. Tomorrow I will take a day trip to Kyoto to see some temples and shrines since it is only a 20 minute train ride away. Then I have a friend coming down from Tokyo to hangout some more while I am in Japan. There will be more stories and pictures to come when I arrive back in Ho Chi Minh City.
