Part One

Pictures from Japan, Part I: from Denver to Obama (via Osaka).

Here are pictures from the first part of the trip. I flew into Osaka this time (via SFO), and spent the first full day wandering around Osaka (I crashed pretty much right after dark, which is early this time of year).

On day two, I exchanged my rail pass at Shin-Osaka station (which I'd actually scoped out the day before wandering around on the subways), and headed off to Obama City on the west (well, north there) coast on the other side of the island from Osaka.

[Pictures start from the link, click through for the rest, obviously. Depending on when you read this, there may be more pictures -- I'm uploading them in batches -- but I'll post here when I do.]
