Like a bloody cat am I, landed on my feet once again. As mentioned in my last blog I could not get a room in kyoto so headed for osaka with the plan of taking a day trip to himeji. Within two hours of leaving I had checked into my room in Osaka, hopped back on the train, and arrived in himeji. Once again the weather is gorgeous. On my approach to himeji-jo(the castle) and old japanese man approached me and asked if he could practice his english with me, i obliged and had a ten minute conversation with him. The castle is really nice. It is very elegant and stands out above the city/town on a hilltop. One can go in and explore inside looking at various historical items. Had a really ice day and got back to Osaka for 5. Heading out in a couple of hours but probably will only have a few, I forgot how busy Osaka is.
