We are going to Osaka this evening. It’s been nearly 10 years since we were there. It’s also been nearly 10 years since I started this blog and I was pleased to see posts about my previous trip. I don’t remember liking Osaka much, but I think that part of that was the dodgy hotel we stayed in. This time was are going to stay near Universal Studios and I’ve been researching food as some do claim that Osaka is the greatest food city in the world.
I’m excited about the journey as we will be travelling on the N700. I realise that makes me sound like a train spotter but really the train is amazing. It has a top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph), though I’m not sure that it reaches that speed on this journey. But it does mean that the 500 or so kilometer trip can be done in less than 2 and half hours.
I’ll try to blog about our adventures but I may end up being offline for around a week.
