Hi guys.
I made around 1300 pics

I will start to upload them after my Dubai pics.

I had 8 days full of sakura. It was beautiful.
But the next time i will stay in Kyoto. This city is more interesting.

One day was better than the day before.
The small skyscraper fan inside of my was not satisfied but what i have seen concerning culture is more than i have ever expected. I love this country much more than before. The culture fascinates me .

But some questions about Osaka.
Could it be possible that Osaka is hit much more by the recession than Osaka? I have seen much more homeless people than in Tokyo.
Is the fashion in Osaka different. Many girls there looking like cheap bitches.

I have new pics from my second trip this month

Let me top my Tokyo trip pics with my Osaka trip pics
I was in Osaka, Nara, Kobe and Kyoto.

Let me begin with Osaka. The pics are in order

This is the view from my hotel room. I`m on the 5th floor.
[IMG]http://************/4rx7xd[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4rx829[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4rx83a[/IMG]

I took this pic from the entry of my hotel. It`s in the middle of patschinko heaven
[IMG]http://************/4rx84l[/IMG]

This is the Namba station. It is the next station to my hotel. It has 33 underground entrys. I lost myself even on my 5th day >_<
[IMG]http://************/4rx8b5[/IMG]

I was very lucky with Sakura. I had it all 8 days long
[IMG]http://************/4rx8hx[/IMG]

Beautiful isn`t it ?
[IMG]http://************/4rx8jn[/IMG]

A small shrine near my hotel.
[IMG]http://************/4rx8nd[/IMG]

The view from the Osaka World Trade Center. This building is 252m tall. But the observation on top was under renovation. So i could use only a room 3 floors under the top.
[IMG]http://************/4rx8pc[/IMG]

The Osaka skyline isn`t really impressive. The second tallest building is 200m tall. But i was satisfied with skyscrapers during my stopover in Dubai
[IMG]http://************/4rx8wy[/IMG]

The big red bridge was a real surprise. I never seen it before.
[IMG]http://************/4rx92s[/IMG]

The view on this day was not the best, but the sun was shining.
[IMG]http://************/4rx95h[/IMG]

I have a question about this pic. Do you like it? I am not sure if taking such pictures is nice for the viewer.
[IMG]http://************/4rx99d[/IMG]

The streets around the WTC are very empty, but nice looking.
[IMG]http://************/4rx9gz[/IMG]

The Osaka WTC. Somehow it seems that this building stands on the wrng place. They should build it in the city center and not on the edge of the city.
[IMG]http://************/4rx9ht[/IMG]

I took this pic from a very large observation wheel. I was very afraid of the high. >_<
[IMG]http://************/4rxavk[/IMG]

Sakura again.
[IMG]http://************/4rxb7n[/IMG]

Japanese celebrating a free day, the spring, the nice weather and sakura
[IMG]http://************/4rxb9c[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4rxbah[/IMG]

I am glad i use only the public transport and don`t drive a car in Japan

The second half of day one.
I travelled to Osaka castle and in the night again to Osaka WTC.
[IMG]http://************/4sxwus[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4sxx4w[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4sxx6d[/IMG]

This was really cute. The small kids performed a play.
[IMG]http://************/4sxx83[/IMG]

Osaka Castle
[IMG]http://************/4sxxcg[/IMG]

This was a holiday in Japan and the castle area was full of people.
[IMG]http://************/4sxxeb[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4sxxg9[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4sxxm1[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4sxxqe[/IMG]

The skyline in Osaka is not very impressive but right now are more than 10 buildings over 150m under construction.
[IMG]http://************/4sxxrt[/IMG]

Osaka Castle has an observation floor. I was the only stupid person that walked the 8 floors to the top.
[IMG]http://************/4sxxxy[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4sxy77[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4sxybm[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4sxydc[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4sxyev[/IMG]

The show from him was very nice
[IMG]http://************/4sxyjb[/IMG]

Sakura
[IMG]http://************/4sxylv[/IMG]

During my last trip to Japan i was not abel to make night pics.
The pics are from the Osaka WTC
[IMG]http://************/4sxzww[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4sy043[/IMG]

The second diggicam makes the better night pics but has only 3x optical zoom.

Thanks.

For the most pics in during the day i use a HP Photosmart 850 and for the most night pics i use a Kodak EasyShare CX7525.


Today is a holiday in Germany so i have time to ulpoad
Here is part one of day 2.
I spent this day again in Osaka.

Early in the morning. The streets are empty.
[IMG]http://************/4uyik4[/IMG]

My favorite motive, a shrine.
[IMG]http://************/4uyirs[/IMG]

I love Japan but this love is not a blind one. I can see the ugly sides, too but i still love this country.
[IMG]http://************/4uyix3[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4uyj4g[/IMG]

During this trip i learned the difference between a shrine and a temple. This is a temple.
[IMG]http://************/4uyjao[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4uyjhe[/IMG]

That`s the probleme with pictures, you can`t see the movement. You can`t see that the cheery bloosems falling and the child runs to catch them. But i hope you can imagine it
[IMG]http://************/4uyjiu[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4uyjv7[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4uyjya[/IMG]

This is the 4000th pic fom the HP Photosmart 850.
[IMG]http://************/4uyk28[/IMG]

This is a shrine.
[IMG]http://************/4uyk9d[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4uykas[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4uylmv[/IMG]

My next stop for a overview of the city.
[IMG]http://************/4uylpd[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4uylub[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4uylw8[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4uylxf[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4uym42[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4uym53[/IMG]

Something beautiful inside the urban chaos.

It's kind of a crime to visit Japan with two non-Japanese cameras, don't you think so?

Sakura is beautiful, i don`t think there is a other country in the world with such amazing cheery bloosom.

If this would be a crime they would kill me, the small cam i had during my first visit wasn`t from a Japanese company, too

Its time for new pics.
This is the second half of day 2.

More people should write, all pics on one page is much, even for DSL `


I was on this rollercoaster but i was the only one

[IMG]http://************/4vissm[/IMG]

The center of Osaka
[IMG]http://************/4vitq8[/IMG]

Umeda Sky Building
[IMG]http://************/4vitr9[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4vitxg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4vity9[/IMG]

170m over ground.
[IMG]http://************/4viu02[/IMG]

In Japan is space very rare
[IMG]http://************/4viu10[/IMG]


[IMG]http://************/4viu7n[/IMG]

Osaka castle
[IMG]http://************/4viu8o[/IMG]

[IMG]http://************/4vivr4[/IMG]

12 buildings over 150m are right now under constrcution in Osaka.
[IMG]http://************/4vivsj[/IMG]

Guess who this is
[IMG]http://************/4viw4o[/IMG]

You shouldn`t be afraid of high when you go to the top of the Umeda Sky Building.
[IMG]http://************/4viw6f[/IMG]

Nice

But somehow it seams that Osaka is not so interesting for the people in this forum. My Dubai pic thread was much more popular.

I hope this will change after my Nara pics *g*
