Alvinisms 180, 2nd in Japan

"If you don't like something change it; if you can't change it, change the way you think about it."

~Mary Engelbreit

Did you know: The Osaka Castle was completely rebuilt and only some to most of the outer and inner walls are original. I believe. It was sick at night, I'll check it out later. Take the Yodobashi line exit Deikukocho exit hop onto the red line and then buy another pass to something 4Chome and your there! Its a lot easier than it sounds.

This picture is from afar, read on young buck and see the photos below.

Thought of the day: So I'm started to getting used to all the Japanese people being around me and the lack of English, I'm also getting used to using the subway and train so I can get around. I like the place I'm at and the people around me are cool, but they ain't Wildboyz. No matter cuz Imma live it up here as much as I can. I mean, it was only the second day and I already saw the Osaka Castle and some authentic Kenpo or Kempo training center. It sounds cool, but painful cuz they whack the shit out of each other. Today I try to get phone so I can get a hold of Vince and my roommies when I'm in a pinch but so far it looks as if things will be okay. More to come. Peace. Love Faith.

-Now thash ah schpicy meataballa!!!

This is the walkway of the outer walls of the Osaka Castle, the gardens inbetween the walls and the moat is what attracts most visitors, is free and soooooo beautiful. During Hanami season which means, Cherry blossoms the castle is packed all day. Come!

This is Marunaka, its just a supermarket but sells plain jane clothes and stuff too. I went grocery shopping yesterday for water, noodles, bubblicious, and a hello kitty candy. Everything you do here is an adventure when you start.

This is the view from the front of my apartment to the left and west. Everything west is pretty much factories and industrial stuff. North South and East are poppin yo. And you can hop a subway to Namba for some dancin!

This is the view to the right side, its more apartments. Behind them is Giallo the bar I went to and UNIQLO, there are some great places to eat here.

This is the Osaka Museum of History, it was closed when Ben and I got there so we just walked around and to the Osaka Castle. Those two guys are freestyle biking and skaters come here all the time.

Willy asked me to take pics of skate spots, the last photo was one, and this is right next to it, there is a more around here to skate so Willys lets hit it up!!!

This is conveyor belt sushi, the funny thing is this is the exact place we ate in March! But still soooo good!
See! I told yah!!! Except we were on the other side yesterday! What a coink a dink! Wish ya'll were here!

This is the castle upclose, you can even touch it and stuff at night, but closed inside. There is a museum in there. Completely rebuilt but worth the trip, serious. The walls and moat are super impressive and the gardens are very beautiful. (j/k, this doesn't exist, but maybe later, super gag modes!)
