Vapour, the pictures are really breathtaking! Osaka looks a great city. Don't you have pictures of the Osaka Aquarium? I am searching for images of aquariums around the world, because I am doing a college paper...

Very kind of you to do it, Nick! But I am in a hurry, because I need to pass on my paper to my teacher urgently. I've read some subjects on Osaka on the web and found it stunning! I really like the eastern culture and I might study either Chinese or Japanese in the near future. Thanks!

P.S.: Let me know when you have the pictures in your hands, please!

Kobe is a great city.Close to water.Ive been living in Osaka for over 5 years now.I never go there.Ive been in the area about 10 times during this period.Mostly for work.I mainly pass through on the Hanshin expressway to get to the breathtaking Seto(inland sea) coastline between Ako and Okayama.

When I do go there I always pop into the 'Mosaic shopping center'.They have a great seafood buffee for about 4,000 Yen(40 dollars US).A bargin!!!!!!!!!!!.The choice is unbelievable.Lobster,Crab,Trout,etc...............................

Tokyo-based Marui Co. intends to open a 17,000-sq.-meter outlet in the southern Nanba district in autumn 2006.

The Shin Kanden building is massive, brown, about 50 storeys, looks rather like the Namba Parks tower but way taller.

You can't miss it. It's right on the river opposite the Sumitomo HQ.

Wow, that's quite a lot of development. I'm surprised at the new Mitsukoshi being built considering that spending was down at the department stores.
