Today they had a sale on flights to Japan. I ended up walking home from work with a return ticket to Osaka; it was a wee bit cheaper than Tokyo. Anyway, I now have one week in Osaka in June. Can anyone with personal experience recommend what's good to visit ? Any great restaurants or bars hidden away which only the locals know about? And shopping! I really would love to do a bit of shopping ( more electronics, gadgets etc ). Will Scandal be playing any shows? *fingers crossed*
At the moment, I've got a small list of things to see, and I also want to hopefully make it to Kyoto and/or Hiroshima; Tokyo will have to wait until next time!
Also, can I get by on very basic knowledge of Japanese?
Whew. That was a lot.
