Taking the Shinkansen to Shin Osaka

Day 1 Sat31

Today is my 1st day in japan.the trains in japan are extremely punctual.we got from the airport to tokyo without any problems.however,we missed the train from tokyo to shin osaka by bout 1 min at most but the train was already gone.

We had to rebook our tix with the jr pass.luckily the next train was only 20 mins away

Finally got to osaka after a 3hr ride on the hikari train.we checked in to our hotel and i applied for a membership card to get 30% off our rooms.its 1500yen for lifetime membership.quite worth it huh?

The room's quite cosy but a bit small.facilities are excellent though.

We went for a walk around the area.lots of "girls" in the streets near our area.they generally leave u alone.the guys are all dressed in suits,like some high class red light district.the girls here are,well,lets just say you shouldnt come to japan with your girlfriend haha
