The Cruise Ship to Osaka, Kyoto

Osaka Castle

On Aug 18 the luxury cruise ship "QUANTUM of the SEAS" arrived at the port of Osaka.  I took 4 guests from Indonesia to Osaka Castle Dotonbori and Abeno Harukas.
Osaka Castle is beautifully reflected on the pond.

In Dotonbori street

These days a lot of foreign tourists visit Dotonbori street. 


is the highest building with a height of 300 meters above sea level in Japan.  From the top observatory you can see a panoramic night view of Osaka. 

Arashiyama Bamboo Forest

On Aug 19 the ship moved to the port fo Kobe.  I took same guests to Kyoto using Shinkansen Bullet train.  We use a private taxi to Arashiyama Bamboo Forest. 


Guests wanted to have "Yuba".  It is a speciality of Kyoto food.  This skin is formed when soy milk is heated.  It is not only delicious but highly nutritious, a lot of protein.  Almost all the Yuba is made in Kyoto and a bit expensive.

Fushimi Inari Taisha

has been ranked first among the most popular scenic spot by foreign tourists in Japan for 5 years in a row.
