Spring ends and summer finally begins. Golden Week is coming up along with several days of good weather. We're going on an overnight trip to Toba in Mie prefecture in eastern Kansai. It's the home of cultured pearls and pearl diving, and there's a good aquarium too if we have time. Should be fun.
I haven't really posted pictures in a while, so here's a selection from this spring.
Hazy day along the Kobe waterfront. In the background Kobe Port Tower covered in scaffolding while it's being repainted.
Osaka has a number of parks that are great to visit during spring and summer. Here a cosy area in Nagai park, south Osaka.
