Tokyo to Osaka

Do you have a Cambodian trip report you want to share? Post it here, and feel free to link to your blog if it's a travel blog for Cambodia, South East Asia, or anywhere really. You can ask and answer questions about travel advice in Cambodia or just share your pictures and videos with us.

Yesterday travelling from Odawara to Osaka in Shinkansen at noon. Soon after the start of the journey Mt. Fuji was on our right side. Very lucky was a clear day and Fuji was at its full glory,

Unfortunately, when I went to Osaka and Tokyo I was in my 20s/early 30s so I was just touring every possible bar and club. Made some interesting friends, Aussie that was there as a wrestler (think WWF), American who was performing Wedding ceremonies, Frenchie who I ended up in a DJ booth with (according to the photos), Aussie and Pom about to fight about some penal colony history. Good 2 weeks

I did go to see the sights in the daytime because I felt I had to, but really I just couldn't wait to get out at night.

You seem to be having a more fulfilling experience. Keep up with the photos. ;-)
