Did nothing much…checked out from my hostel, then took some pictures at Bunkyo civic centre observation deck near Tokyo Dome city (its free btw) …so yeah….really nothing much. 😛

Also, since i didnt update my blog yesterday, i have alot to catch up, so i’ll just cut short the write up for today lol…here’s some pictures instead.

Bunkyo Civic Centre Observation Deck – It’s free to go up !

After that i went back to my hostel again to get my luggages, and at the lobby i bumped into 4 japanese guys who is a 48 fans. They ask me where did i come from an i say “Indonesia”. One of them quickly say “JKT48”? Then did a brofist with me lol…after further chat turns out he is akicha oshi, hahaha no wonder. He even knew about the Jakarta flood last week lol…Seems like Indonesia now only famous about the Flood and JKT48 lol.

Anyways, collected my luggage then i went to Tokyo Station, to take the Willer Express bus to osaka…Slept all the way in the bus though lol.

So im finally in Osaka….took an overnight willer express bus from Tokyo to Osaka…the bus departs 22:40 from Tokyo station, and arrived 07:40 in Umeda Sky Building Osaka. The willer express cost 4000 yen one way, but the bus is quite spacioius, clean, and even got power plug for handphone chargers lol. 😀

Once i arrived in Osaka, i quickly checked in to my hotel “Chuo Oasis”. I arrived there at 845 am, at first i only want to deposit my luggage, but then the guy told me to check in instead !! :O I didnt expect that, very kind of him to let me check in very early lol..:)

The hotel is very good too, clean, got in room bathroom/shower, tv, aircon/heater/ even towels and toothbrush etc ! For 3300 yen, this is a real steal…if only tokyo have the same hostel standard as this at the same price! I will definitely make a review later, so do look out for it 😀

As for today…basically just did tourist stuffs, i’ll just do a quick write ups…im not really good with writings about tourist spots anyways…just see my pictures instead 😛

First, i dropped by NMB48 shop to buy some stuffs for myself and my friend, then continue to Osaka Castle, Hep Five ferrywheel, and lastly, Umeda Sky Building “173” Observation deck….all for free! Oh yeah, i forgot to mention, if you’re in osaka and you want to visit these places, do consider getting ‘Osaka 2 days unlimited pass’ it includes 2 days free train ride and free access to some tourist spots ! Click here for the website (i collected mine in the tourist/info booth at the 1st floor of JR umeda station btw)

Osaka tourist package lol

Took plenty of pictures as well, so check out below for the pictures. The umeda sky building really worth the money + time imo, you should definitely check it out…even if its just for chillin while checking out the views only 😛

After visiting 3 different tourist spots in one day, i decided to go back to the hotel early to rest….Tomorrow im still undecided where to go…we’ll see how it goes tomorrow. Now time to enjoy a 30 mins of hot shower! 😀
