Moats are cool that's why.
Have fun storming the castle! (That never gets old.)
Me and Kevin in front of Osaka Castle
There aren't that many sites in Osaka, and though we would have liked to eat all the delicious food all day we just couldn't. So even though we knew the inside of the castle isn't supposed to very exciting we went in it anyway. It wasn't that exciting.

Ice cream and beer break! Woo!
This bring me to a point about beer in Japan. It's available the way soda is in the US, and it's fine to just have one wherever you buy one. It seems very normal and civilized.
Japanese wedding! Gorgeous!

Kevin being interviewed by school childrenWe walked around outside the castle for a little while. There was more to explore but it was Friday already and my feet were just one big blister. We were both excited to head to the baseball game. Kevin because he loves baseball- and me because I was excited to sit for hours!
