The beauty of JR Pass, allowing us to travel at almost obscene mileage to god knows where in Japan without worrying about any extra cost and we can pretty much plan our trip on a whim.
We scrapped plans to visit the neighbouring island near Takamatsu. Decided not to go to Obokke Kobokke and Kochi either. And with skipping those places; we covered almost 2,000km instead, but to where? Stay tuned until the end of this post!
From Takamatsu, we took the train to Okayama Station then onwards to Shin-Osaka but not before buying ekiben at Okayama Station. Raimie insisted on having an anago ekiben, one of the more expensive ekiben sold at the stall. *clever boy*
Then, we made our way to Nara. Patted some deers, stepped on a lot of deer poop, looked at temples and gazed in awe at the autumn colours there.
Plenty of school kids on field trip to Nara that day. Not to mention a lot of foreign tourists along with Japanese tourists.
Spent a little bit of time walking around Dotonbori and Shinsaibashi area; which by the way is very much alive even late in the evening. For info, this photo was taken at 11.00pm at night. *^^*
With a big nose like that, who can resist, eh? xD
