One of my anticipated trip in Japan! Ate Mai's friend, Grace accompanied us going to Osaka. We meet also our Filipino friend, Jaypee who's working in Osaka. Our itinerary for that day was Universal Studios Japan (USJ), Osaka Castle and Shinshai-bashi.

We first went to USJ! I was amazed with the establishments around the amusement park!

Yay! The entrance of USJ! Since I am not a fan of amusement park, so we did'nt went inside, we just took pictures in the Universal Globe :)

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter inside the amusement park (For Harry Potter's fans) :)

We strolled around the establishments and went to Takoyaki Museum! 

We bought takoyaki for lunch, of course! Mouthwatering!

After lunch we rode a train going to Osaka Castle :)

Everywhere I go, I always admire the cleanliness of places. It really reflects how discipline the Japanese are :)

We tried the Ninja costumes :)

Our next stop, Shinsai-bashi :)

We went home with sooo much unforgettable memories and misadventures in Osaka! Arigatou Gousaimasu Grace and Jaypee! :)
