Read? Types of Flowers Spotted During This Trip (2)
Check out of our apartment at Kyoto was at 10 AM and the next check in at Osaka was after 12 PM (we requested for early check in); but still too early to take train to Osaka for 30 mins ride.
We decided to visit another shrine in Koyo and put our carry-on luggages at Kyoto's coin lockers. One 500 yen coin locker is large enough to hold two carry-on luggages.
All About the Bunny Shrine, Kyoto's Higashi Tenno Okazaki Shrine.
The area of Okazaki is famous for shrines such as the Heian Jingu Shrine. Okazaki Shrine has been a place of worship for more than 1,200 years. Originally this shrine played a role in protecting the emperor, his court and its citizenry. It is also called Higashi Tenno (Emperor of the East) because it is located to the east of the former capital, and it is beloved by the locals even in the present day.
For accommodation at Osaka, we stayed at whole apartment Miki’s place for $133 per night. It is less than 5 mins walk from Shin Osaka station.
The Umeda Sky Building (梅田スカイビル) is a spectacular high rise building in the Kita district of Osaka, near Osaka and Umeda Stations. It is also known as the "New Umeda City".
The 173 meter tall building consists of two towers that are connected with each other by the "Floating Garden Observatory" on the 39th floor. The observatory offers great views of the city through its windows and from its open-air deck. In the basement, there is a restaurant floor that replicates a town of the early Showa Period, while offices occupy most other floors.
