With so many people posting about the awesome Tokyo Olympics 2020 teaser, I am missing Japan like crazy!
http://instagram.com/p/BG9f0zEie2N/embed/I miss Japan so much that I finally got inspired to edit the videos I took in Osaka with my GoPro.
(I have sooooo much blog backlogs about my Japan travels, seriously! Augh.)
I really wanted to go to Japan again this coming October so that I can experience the Fall season and complete my “Experience Japan’s Four Seasons in One Year” project, haha.
Unfortunately, due to unforeseen expenses and surprise travel plans, I have to postpone it to next year.
(But maybe, just maybe, by some miracle, I really, really, REALLY WANT to travel to Japan on October… COME ON, UNIVERSE!!! *cross fingers*)
Anyway, for our Osaka trip last June, we booked a tour at TripleLights.
On the website, you can either sign up for a public tour or hire a private guide to bring you around the city.
We decided to hire a private guide because we wanted a more customized tour for the day. For that day, we chose Mari-san.
With Mari-san at Dotonbori.
Normally, I wouldn’t book a tour, nor would I hire a private guide. I would prefer to explore on my own and get lost in the city as I find that more exciting and satisfying.
But since we were with my in-laws who are a bit of age, we needed a more specific plan because they don’t have much energy to spare, hehe.
(Long walks and ‘where-my-feet-take-me’ kind of plans are a big no-no, haha.)
Mari-san is a really sweet lady and we didn’t make a mistake in hiring her.
It was a very fun tour, albeit a bit short!
Next time I go to Japan, I wouldn’t mind hiring Mari-san again if we will be in need of a private tour guide.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed watching my vid!
