Two months ago, my boss and I decided on a trip to Osaka and Kyoto. Two months ago, I was thinking January would never come. Now? With just mere days left, I now believe that this trip is happening. Eeee!
My boss left all the planning to me, so after much researching and pulling hair at how complicated Japanese subway systems are compared to Seoul’s, this is the itinerary I came up with:
- Universal City Station area
- Universal Studios Japan
- Animate Tennoji
- Minami aka Namba Station area
- Nishi Hongwang-ji Temple
- Shosei-en Gardens
- Nishiki Market
Animate Tennoji and Nishi Hongwang-ji are the two things I told my boss we had to do. No ifs and buts! The first is to do my obligatory otaku shopping spree, and the second is to satisfy the Hakuouki fangirl in me! :D I wish I could go to more places featured in Hakuouki, but we’re on a major time-crunch. But really, an amusement park, an anime store, a temple, a garden, a market, and several shopping/entertainment district to wander around in? That’s not too bad, I think.
Oh, I can’t wait! And now I need to pack! /o Would be a nightmare to go without anything!
