Osaka Castle...

Just some randoms from our visit to Osaka Castle park in the heart of Osaka City... beautiful surroundings, esp from the top floor of the main castle building :)

In the days of old, the entire area of the castle looked really formidable and many foreigners in the olden Japan (mostly missionaries) gave praise and awe to Shogun Hideyoshi Toyotomi's feat of constructing this beautiful castle of such scale.

ms. clover looks very stylish in all the photos. i honestly think i'm going to look like a big ba zhang when i go japan in dec. :|

nah.. not going to Nagoya liao... wanted to but felt that we can save it for the next trip :p

Thanks! Actually..... heh heh, the avg temp is around 10 - 14 degrees in city and about 1 - 5 degrees in highland areas. so we are also very cold when we shoot each other.. hahaha.. You don't have to look like a 'ba zhang' lah... there are so many stylish winter wear here that you can almost spoil yourself silly with selections!

Get flat sole boots.. ankle ones.. will protect your toes from the cold which is already descending into the city... brrrrr..... :D

cool! anyway you have been to Osaka Castle this time.. Nagoya Castle can be keepf or nexttime....

i want to go to japan!
