Andrea and I came back from our trip to Japan a couple of weeks ago. Although it was blisteringly hot we had a blast. The first city we visited was Osaka. While there we visited with my friend Takeshi; his Aunt and Uncle drove us around the first two days to Wakayama and Nara. Osaka is known for being a city where it's citizens love to eat and they did not disappoint.
