Welcome to Osaka - Japan!

Yes, it was my first visit to Japan and Osaka in particular. I find the city modern and business-like. I enjoyed the city for sure. Most of the local people are very nice. From the hotel where I stayed, to the tourist attractions I had been, and to all those accomodating subway station staff whom I had to deal with everyday, and the people around the city are more often pleasing.

The only challenge that a tourist will face is the language barrier. Communication is a bit of a problem during my stay which resulted to slight delays in my very hectic schedule. I can see the effort exerted in trying to help, and most of the time I cannot see this problem anymore because of the gesture and expression of being the real people. Other than that, Osaka is a great city and full of decent people.
