FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23mm, f/2, 1/2400 sec, ISO200)

I always wanted to use the title of one of my favorite movies for a blog post but of course I needed to visit Japan first. Now I did so finally I can.

What a trip! This was the first time I read two books before traveling to a country and I was still not prepared. It was an overwhelming experience and I wish that I had more time there. But it was a business trip so photography was restricted to after work and the first afternoon the day I landed in Osaka. I managed to get some good sleep on the plane so I went out for sightseeing right after I checked in and had a shower.

Unclear of where to go first I decided to go to the Osaka station to get some food. Of course it had to be Sashimi. It was great and while my plan was to visit the Osaka Aquarium next I stumbled over Yodobashi. Of course I had to go there first.

In case you don’t know Yodobashi. It is a Japanese camera/electronics chain. It’s biggest store is located in Akiba/Tokyo but this one in Osaka is not bad too. It is 12 stories high  and though the 4 top stories are for car parking, the 8th floor is a restaurant and there is the chance to buy clothes or bizarre Manga DVDs and books there is still enough space left for camera…
