We had just gotten used to Tokyo - and it was already time to say goodbye and have a Shinkansen breakfast on the 3 hours train ride to Osaka.
The train was not only super fast but also convenient with a lot of room for our legs.
Here's what's different in Japanese cars: not only is the steering wheel on the right side, the moment you start the engine, the screen comes to live. It's supposed to be for the navigational system but if you don't use it for that it just plays mostly ads and some news.
My I present to you....
The building here is called Harukas 300.
That's because it's 300 meters high and you go up to the 60th floor.
It has glass walls all around, great for the view!
In the center there is the "sky garden" on the 58th floor.
We arrived just in time for sunset.
Be warned: I will not select just a few pictures. Just look at all of them!
The sky was clear enough to see the mountains on the horizon.
Dusk over Osaka...
Oli is giving everything for a good picture!

And please stop the "matching" music!
Model of the building.
Yuko cooked a nice Japanese dinner for us. It contained a lot of things that I didn't even know what they were when their names were translated to me!
It was interesting to communicate with the family: Yuko speaks French, her son Nao some English and later came her husband Shinichi who was happy to practice his rusty German with us.
We ended the meal with some of the nice sweets we had bought in the afternoon.
