We all seperated in the morning....Keiichi back to Tokyo and I went to Osaka. Nao and Keiichi was very worry about my trip to Osaka as i never been there before and Nao she couldn't go with me coz she has to start a new job in the next day. As i told her that i have another friend in Osaka who will meet up with me there....So, Nao called Umi the night before to make sure about station where to meet up with me.. coz the hostel where i planned to stay first was a bit difficult( for people who been here 1st time) to find. .......After everything all set... lots of map that she prepared to me.. I left Shizuoka to Osaka!
As they all expected! Â I lost in Osaka for awhile before meet with Umi coz many Exits at the staion but luckily i had my phone there....So, we managed to meet each other.
After walked to the hostel where is the first time that i wanna try to stay in kind of bagpacker hostel by myself.... Ah arr.r..r After we arrived at the place....my friendÂ look not so happyÂ with the place....coz lots of bars there and the owner is Korean.... *we both had some story about Korean people*--- Long story.... So, Umi called Nao to let her know about my arrival and told about hostel... Nao wants me to move out and stay at the hotel where she worked before at that .....but i want to try that Ryokan hostel..so, we end up stay at that hostel for the 1st night....2nd night at Swissotel where Nao paid for me ...and 3rd night...at hotel where Umi's uncle own it.
