At the beginning of April this year I visited Osaka and Kyoto respectively for the first time. Respectively meaning in the order that I put them in, so first Osaka, then Kyoto. Though it was a short trip, lasting only about 3 days/4 nights, I managed to see a lot of great places with my GF Alex and our friend Chantal. This was a trip we had been planning for over a year!
I've been meaning to make this post for a while now, I'm finally getting around to it. Photo-editing and processing isn't as fast as it was at home with my powerful i7 dual-screen computer as it with my current still-nice Surface Pro 3. Editing-process aside, I always find myself blank on what info I want to say for the images.
Osaka and Kyoto from my short experience were really fun. There's no short supply of temples and shrines to visit. Be sure to look up popular destinations when you visit, plan out a route, but leave some stuff to chance and walk around! Take a good look at the photos to know what you may want to see when you visit : )
I'll keep it minimal for now, as I still have images to edit and post from Tokyo!
