Overdue August / September Update!

Its been some time since I last posted an update on what I have been up to, mainly due to a trip to the UK, a wedding and having my arm in cast for months following a careless slip on our living room floor! The upside of this, I guess, is having had plenty of experience of the Japanese hospital system.

I also passed a milestone recently, having been in Osaka for just over a year, the time has just flown past! There have certainly been many ups and downs over the year, but overall its been an interesting experience and I look forward to seeing what the next year has in store.

Anyway, here is a selection of photos of various things of interest over the past couple of months:

Peaches kindly sent to us by my wife's grandparents.

A firework display held alongside Yodo river, this one is a Pokemon ball!

If you look closely you can see Doraemon's face.

A Zen garden in Kyoto, built by a poet.

Osaka Science Museum, they have a rather bad cockroach problem!

The Lotus pond outside the museum.

The museum also has this interesting tunnel of gourds!

An old electronics store in Nipponbashi.

A summer festival in Kyoto


  1. Looks like you're doing well. Hope you continue you have good times!

  2. Thanks for the comments!

    Blue Shoe - It hasn't all been a smooth ride but overall it has been a good year, feeling much more settled in now, I'm sure there will be more good times to come!

    Headphaze - cheers! taken me some time to update but hope to be update more often now.

  3. Hey There Paulio. Was good to see you and Aya at the wedding, best of luck for the 2nd year in Japan (I would say break a leg...)

  4. Breaking a leg isn't at the top of my priorities at the moment! It was great to catch up, shame it couldn't have been for longer. Hope to make it back again next year so can maybe have a longer catch up session then.
