today was sort of a relax-day. we checked out of the crowne plaza kobe, and checked into our hotel in osaka, the chisun hotel shin osaka, but not before catching this beautiful sunrise :)
so here is where we are now:
not far from kobe!
but before we headed to our new hotel, we grabbed some lunch, and decided to sit in the park and enjoy hanami with the other japanese people having fun :)
our yummy bento box lunches!
people picnicking and enjoying the cherry blossoms
these people picked an awesome spot! they were using the cold water to keep their drinks cold :)
anyway, after lunch we took the 13 minute bullet train ride to our new hotel, and let me just say...we REALLY miss our kobe hotel hahahaha...
yep. that's erik almost touching both walls at once haha
pretty tiny! also...not the cleanest
and the bathroom is the size of an airplane bathroom (plus a tiny bathtub)
but they have a hot food vending machine in the hallway!
so we just took it easy tonight. went to the lawson's and the family mart to stock up on some breakfast foods/snackies, then ate some and hung out. tomorrow we will be going to kyoto!
