I won't ever get why the Japanese love so much to cover their buildings with bathroom style tiles , it isn't just the first one I've seen.

A matter of taste, i think, because that's more expensive than painting the facade or something. However, i find it very urban Japanese, possibly because it's not very common to see it anywhere else.

Osaka looks more dirty and chaotic than Tokyo or Kobe. But it has a unique look, i like it very much. In addition, Japanese (most from Kansai, of course) use to say that Osakans are more friendly, funny and warm than people from Kanto or other regions, so that gives a plus to the city overall. A serious option if you wanna move to Japan (like i do, somewhen!).
