Hard drive is busted.

This is disheartening for me but my hard drive just got busted yesterday and I was stupid enough not to back up the photos (because I thought I had it all backed up). I guess I will still try to blog the ones I still have mobile photos when I move on. T_T

Lesson learned. Back it up! T_T

Meiji no Mori Minō Quasi-National Park

So you want to see more of Japan?

Last year's Japan trip was shorter by a day but it is always a pleasant time during Autumn season. Minoo park is the farthest from all of the sight-seeing we decided to visit so we made it first on our list. It is located in Osaka, 30 minutes from Umeda on the Hankyu Takarazuka line. We had a hard time looking for an available locker where we needed the 500yen size.


I was in contact with a school mate back in High School, good thing she had some free time to come and took us to places. I am grateful for the company Jii. :D


Before I forget, I would like to share with you this link. This website was very helpful when making your own itinerary: I am not sure If you can explore other countries, as I can only see Japan ventures here. Quite helpful when you plot your own map where you can see the distance from place to place. This way you could see your plan more precisely by numbering them according to its distance. Sounds great? Yes! :D 


Traveling has been a trend now, this getaway made me realize that one can no longer take that photo without a crowd. Every temple and every place that you need to see are packed with tourists. Arashiyama Forest was quite a horde but I will tell you about it in my future entry.

So, let's go back to regular programming. Minoo falls was a relief, there were crowds but not the same thing you would see in the Golden pavilion or the Fushimi-Inari Shrine. Nothing beats a serene view just to see the waterfalls, have small bites from local stores and a good walk. I think this is the most peaceful place we visited last year.

You could see tourists with backpacking bags, not sure if there was a trail after this but the map has unending grounds waiting to be explored.
