Have arrived in Osaka without any delays or problems. The weather is the same as england (cold and raining) so it feels homely! Spent our first day round a zoo, some temples and an aquarium near the hotel as we are still recovering from the 30 hr journey!
The language barrier is a bit of an prob coz there isnt much english anywhere - ordering food is the worst part. I tried saying hello and they were still laughing about it as we left so I'm not trying that again! Luckily the transport system is great and has lots of english! plus people are quick to try and help when we look lost!
Tomorrow we'r going to Osaka Castle and some temples nearby, so looking forward to that. Out for dinner tonight so hopefully we can figure out what to eat!
Hope everyone is ok back home!
