After strolling around the streets near to the central station in Kyoto I headed for some of the better known tourist spots. The only problem is that most of the sites are located on the outskirts of the town which males it very difficult to see a lot in one day. And keep in mind I was still hurting from wandering all around Osaka yesterday, so this became a test of endurance. (more…)

I didn’t have anything planned for today so I slept for a really long time which was really helpful after yesterday’s exhausting trip to Nikko. Which is why not that much happened at all.

But because the tournament started today I found a new anme series which is airing on TBS in Japan at the moment. It’s called “Ookiku Furikabutte” and just as other school animes it’s about a high school baseball team that is aiming to go to Koushien at least once in their three years at high school. It is set in Saitama and tells the Story of Mihashi Ren, the pitcher for Nishiura High School. He always thought that his spot on the team of his Middle School was because his grandfather was the manager of the baseball club. (more…)
