With Japan being extremely hot this time of year, what better way to travel than a simple shift dress with cut out shoulders and butterfly sleeves (as I like to call it) to give it a little bit of flair. One of my favourite eBay purchases for sure! Also, that Boohoo backpack was only a mere £4!! A bargain if you ask me.
That day was spent wandering around Osaka and going to some notable tourist attractions. First stop was Kuromon Market which is basically a long alleyway with tons of stalls and small restaurants on either side selling things ranging from fresh seafood, sushi, fruits and flowers. The busy atmosphere of the market in the early mornings is one that you can't miss!
Then, we took the subway to Osaka Palace which was situated in the center of a huge park and thus, required
a little quite a bit of walking. This was of course made bearable with snow cones (they weren't that great to be honest), ice cream and the natural view in the park. Osaka Palace was once well, a palace that has been built and rebuilt during times of war. As of today, the palace has been converted into an interactive museum about the castle history and Toyotomi Hideyoshi, the guy that unified Japan. If you climb all the way to the very top, you get an amazing view of the city!
