And in this moment I realized I was really late! I had to run to monorail station (and didn't get massage what was proposed to me haha ;)). I had to return my sim card in Softbank counter before 11pm. I reached International Terminal at... 22.55... running to information counter (luckily this terminal is so well designed, you can't be lost) and asked a girl about "Softbank service center". She looked at a clock and I said "yes yes, till 11pm", run to the Softbank counter, fortunetelu not so far. 2 hours to the flight, so I made a self-check in and... run to the information counter "how can i get to terminal 1?" (I had to go there to pick up my bag) and she checked time again ;). Terminal 1 is closed about midnight I guess. When I got there, there wasn't anyone - I regret I didn't make a pic of this empty terminal ;). I was lucky to find a coin locker where I left my bag.

2386. TI after passing security control


Very modest, but I liked it.

2387. So I had only to wait for my first 787 experience ;)

Quick boarding and I'm at my seat.

2388. First service... is it all?


I know, it was night flight (take off at 1am), but I would kill for smth warm ;)

2389. Breakfast, much better.


Seats in ANA 787 iaren't so good I expected. It's 2/4/2 layout, but seats are not so comfortable.

2390.


But overall 787 is amazing. You can really feel difference in air pressure etc., I felt much better and relaxed than after other long-haul flights.

2391. I couldn't get into cockpit, but I made quite long conversation with steward, about this and other flight etc. In the end I wanted to make a pic of CC, one of them saw it and... took my cam and made a souvenir photo ;). This flight is a good flight! But CC lookes much more relaxed than me :laugh:


If they read it anytime I must say - thanks for the best flight ever! ;)

2392. It can be better. One stewardess opened a locker and gave me a gift.


2393. What was a dream-deck and inflatable 787 - my nephew was very happy of this ;).


Again, thanks ANA CC!

2394. FRA at 5:40, so empty Fraport.


2396. So last look to my plane.


Thanks for reading! I hope there will be continuation soon :cheers:

Some people might say that posting 2396 almost random pictures is a bit over the top. But seriously, I would not be able to make such a photo report that turned out to be so fascinating.

Thank you for posting all 2396 pictures. :cheers:

Hi, someone interested for more? ; )

However, I'm really sorry, I'm not able to translate my relation here. I'm going to Osaka again on 22nd April and I realised it's quite soon. It seems that my personal life will be much more connected to Japan than before ; ).

So - in last November I travelled to South Korea, than Taiwan and - of course - Japan. I spent in Japan around 10 days and I used it to visit islands which I haven't seen before. So - Okinawa, Kyushu and Shikoku : ). My trip was strictly architectural and the main them was Tadao Ando : ). Actually, I saw many his buildings (especially in Naoshima, Osaka and Kobe) and I had even a possibility to meet him in person! Also You can see in my relation some very rare buildings I dreamed to see, like Gallery 8 by Toyo Ito in Yatsushiro (near Kumamoto) and many many other places.

So, in detail it was: Naha, Fukuoka, Yatsushiro, Kagoshima (just for some hours), Miyazaki, Beppu, Takamatsu, Kotohira, Naoshima, Osaka + Kobe (Rokko housing!), Tokyo.

So, sorry once again I can't translate it, but if someone of You is interested still in my pics, here is relation in Polish (from post no. 785)

You can use google translation, not so bad ; )

See You soon in Osaka! I'll spend there 2 weeks and - @Ukiyo, finally - I'm going to stay one place all this time ; )

Another upload :).

I'm really really sorry I can't repost my pictures to this thread in Japan Forum - I'm too busy and time between following trips is so limited.

However, for those who interested, please find my next relation in Polish forum.
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1730598
And English translation by google is really not so bad ;)
http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=pl&tl=en&u=http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1730598

So this time 2 weeks in April and May in Kansai region. You'll find pictures from:
- Osaka
- Minoo, a small, charming town in Osaka
A couple of day trips, and in them:
- Kyoto
- Kameoka and Kurashiki
- Ebara, Kinosaki
- Ayabe, Obama and Tsuruga
- Rokko hill

Samples ;)

Many trains.


Great architecture.


Some pictures from small towns outside the main roads.


And also from touristic spots.


Some views from the top.


From top of mountains.


Some deep forests.


Actually I have much more pictures from my next trip in July (including Nagoya, Ise, short trip to Awaji island), but I couldn't find time to upload it (in the same thread as above). I'm going there on 10th September, so low possibility to upload it till then ;).

Zapraszam :)
