Kansai Spring Trip 2016: Osaka Day 1

Hi everybody!

Last Spring, my dear friend Abbey and I went to have a 3-day trip in Kansai Region (Osaka - Kyoto). It was super fun and unforgettable. Still couldn't forget the time we got ourselves lost because of my very dependable "navigational skills", haha! We booked a night bus from Saitama and we arrived at a VIP Lounge (that's how they call it) somewhere near Osaka station. If you're planning to go to Osaka / Kyoto, booking a night bus (try willerexpress) is an affordable option compared to riding a shinkansen / bullet train.
