I was from april 8th to april 16th in Japan again.
I made 1400 pics >_<

I want to apologiese at first because i will post around 20 pics every weekend and i think it will take 3 to 6 month to post my best pics >_<
I think i will upload 200 - 300 pics. Maybe more.

Okay let me begin with Osaka. The pics are in order.

This is the view from my hotel room. I`m on the 5th floor.






I took this pic from the entry of my hotel. It`s in the middle of patschinko heaven :D


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 >_<


I was very lucky with Sakura. I had it all 8 days long :)


Beautiful isn`t it ?


A small shrine near my hotel.


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.


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 :)


The big red bridge was a real surprise. I never seen it before.


The view on this day was not the best, but the sun was shining.


I have a question about this pic. Do you like it? I am not sure if taking such pictures is nice for the viewer.


The streets around the WTC are very empty, but nice looking.


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.


I took this pic from a very large observation wheel. I was very afraid of the high. >_<


Sakura again.


Japanese celebrating a free day, the spring, the nice weather and sakura




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

They will follow. I post the pics in order. The pics here are from day one.
It takes around 45 minute to make the 20 pics smaller and to upload them. It will take some time :)

I love Tokyo the most, second is Kyoto.
During my next visit in the Osaka area i will stay in Kyoto.

About this picture:



First I can't refrein from saying that the lady in that picture looks GREAT!!!

Second, can any Japanese forumer tell me if Matsushita is still using the National brand in Japan? They've never used that in Europe and in Middle East they stopped last year, renaming all their household articles as Panasonic. Is this the case in Japan and the billboard is old perhaps?

Everytime I see the pics of Tom Green, I really admire your skill!
(I don't like Osaka, though)

From April 1st of this year, Matsushita runs away from National brand and uses only Panasonic in Japan, too.
(but National sounds very special to Japanese, especially Osakans, and people are attached to the name.)

^ Thank you Coldstar.

What about Techniks, have they already started using it for their high-end audio products?

Such nice comments motivate me to post faster :)
I Iike Tokyo much more then Osaka and i like Kyoto more then Osaka.

The second half of day one.
I travelled to Osaka castle and in the night again to Osaka WTC.






This was really cute. The small kids performed a play.


Osaka Castle


This was a holiday in Japan and the castle area was full of people.








The skyline in Osaka is not very impressive but right now are more than 10 buildings over 150m under construction.


Osaka Castle has an observation floor. I was the only stupid person that walked the 8 floors to the top.










The show from him was very nice :)


Sakura :)


During my last trip to Japan i was not abel to make night pics.
The pics are from the Osaka WTC




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

Pictures of the girl, Tom ? :rofl:
Yes. But it would be rude to upload her pic without asking here.


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.


My favorite motive, a shrine.


I love Japan but this love is not a blind one. I can see the ugly sides, too but i still love this country.




During this trip i learned the difference between a shrine and a temple. This is a temple.




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 :)






This is the 4000th pic fom the HP Photosmart 850.


This is a shrine.






My next stop for a overview of the city.












Something beautiful inside the urban chaos.
