I`m so happy. The vacation in Osaka was a blast.

Day 1

The first day we got to Osaka we resolved to do as much as we could. We dropped off our bags at our hotel in Osaka and then went to go and visit Kitano street in Kobe.

Its a lovely area with old European houses and cafes galore. After lunch, H and I went into one that had a gallery and it was a welcome rest from the hot heat. A word of caution, the area itself sits up on a hill so its quite a trek in the heat. Also it`s very expensive to enter the houses. Just so you know 😉 Other than that there are restaurants and cafes in the area that I quite enjoyed.

After that we went off to a coffee museum that is just a short way off. I love coffee and the little museum was actually really great. It had tons of facts about coffee and interactive stations.

Next we decided to go and trek to Nunobiki Falls. It was a long ways to get to but once we were there, the waterfall was really nice to see. It was also much cooler under the trees and had places to sit and enjoy the waterfall. I was surprised that the waterfall was so close to the urban neighborhood and really enjoyed the scenery. Nature rocks.

That night, I am proud to say that I ate real Kobe beef! (My dads been raving about it for years, and hes right it is delicious) It was amazing, tender, delicious and just omg. It was also expensive but super worth it. When I go to Kobe next Im totally hitting up some Kobe beef.
