Osaka and Kyoto Instagram diary

Osaka and Kyoto Instagram diary
[ENG][Attention dangerous content for envious people] 
Here are just some pictures (if you compare to how many still have on my phone) from my trip to Japan (last July). Who constantly follow my blog (or my Instagram) remember, I believe, my Holiday in Tokyo last Spring (during cherry blossom O_O: P envy point no. 1) and would be suprised why I have choosen to travel to Japan again ?! Well, there is no country in the world that fascinates me more than Japan. If I had the opportunity to travel 10 times a year wherever I wish Japan would still be on my list. My dream country. Perhaps I lived in J in the previous life, otherwise I can't explain how it possible that feel at home in a country that a miles and miles away from mine and with such a different culture. Ok, ok (have to cut my presentation and the para speculations :d). Three days in Osaka and a quick visit to Kyoto. Three days of different activities, locations and various delicacies - same result. Bankruptcy in Bank account. Shopping in Osaka (envy point nr2) is irresistible (doesn't matter what are you going to buy - clothes, electronics, food, etc). Very Quality products, overwhelming offer... Spicy prices. The price of any clothing item starts from 100 € / $ / £. But for sure well spent money. Ideal is if your husband would not realize  the exchange rate during your shopping. Otherwise he'll ask  your visa cancelation :)) (that is exactly what my husband intends to do if I'll decide to travel again to J :))). Ok (cutting my blah blah about shopping). The city is fascinating, everything is so organized (paradise for those who care about rules, mutual respect, harmonie), many many fantastic places and real real sushi (envy point nr. 3) (but I don't have space to carry on here). The only one thing I want you to remember  is if you come to Osaka you HAVE to go to Kyoto. (Otherwise I won't  forgive you !!!) The trip to Kyoto is kind of quick lesson of ancient history and an insight into Japanese culture and art. One day is not enough to visit Kyoto (even one week wouldn't be enough for me). If you reach the Golden Temple it is a must to try the ice cream (envy pint nr. 4) at the shop next to the exit. It is so delicous that I think it could compete with the italian gelato. Ah yeah, one more thing to try anywhere in Japan. The coffee (envy point nr.5) from self-service machines. I think the taste it is even better than Italian coffee. 

Now something ultra important. On departure, in the airport, don't pursue perfumes and other things that you'll find anywhere in the world. Buy Royce Chocolate. As much as possible! Yes, and Tokyo Banana cake or Strawbery Cake from Ginza (alternatively), Green Tea Latte etc. Royce worths 100 envy points, trust me !!! 

ps: Come back soon I might writte  few more stories from Japan (and other trips).

[RO] [Atentie content periculos pentru cei invidiosi] 
Iata aici doar cateva poze (daca e sa compar la cate am pe telefon) din calatoria in Japonia (din luna trecuta). Cine mai urmareste pe blog (ori Instagram) mai tine mine ca am fost in vacanta de primavara la Tokyo (pe timpul ciresilor infloriti O_O :P envy point nr. 1)  au sa se intrebe de ce Japonia again?! Ei bine, pentru ca nu exista tara pe lumea asta sa ma fascineze mai mult decat Japonia. Daca as avea ocazia sa calatoresc 10 ori pe an oriunde as vrea Japonia ar  tot ar fi pe lista mea. My dream country. Probabil am locuit in J intr-o viata precendenta ca altfel nu imi explic  de ce mai simt ca acasa intr-o tara atat de indepartata si straina de cultura mea. Ok, ok (scurtam prezentarea si para speculatiile :d). Trei zile in Osaka si o fuga pana-n Kyoto. Trei zile de vizite, activitati si delicatese diferite - acelasi rezultat. Faliment in banck account. Shopping-ul in Osaka (envy point nr.2) este irezistibil (fie la haine, electronice, mancare, etc). Produse de foarte buna calitate, oferta coplesitoare...preturi picante. Cam orice piesa vestimentara valoreaza de la 100 €/$/£. Dar cu siguranta se merita. Ideal sotul sa nu isi dea seama de schimbul valutar si sa va faceti plinul la timp :)) Altfel o sa ceara sa va fie anulata viza pe J, asa cum intetioneaza sa faca sotul meu in cazul in care ma decid sa ma intorc in J :))). Ok (scurtam si bla bla-ul despre shopping). Orasul este fascinant, totul pus la punct (paradis pentru cine tine la eticheta, respect reciproc si reguli), o gramada de curiozitati in oras, sa nu mai mentionez de sushi (envy point nr. 3) dar din pacate nu mai am spatiu sa enumer aici. Totuti tin sa memorizati un singur lucru. Daca veniti in Osaka atunci neaparati sa mergeti in Kyoto. Atfel nu va iert!!! Calatoria in Kyoto e ca o lectie rapida de istoria antica si o incursiune in cultura si arta japoneza. O zi nu e suficienta deloc (pentru mine nicio saptamana nu ar fi). Daca ajungeti in Golden Temple obligatoriu incercati inghetata (envy point nr.4) de la iesire (Suprinztor dar este comparabila celei italiene. Ah da, si cafeaaaaaaaua de la orice masinarie din aia self service. E delicioasa. Mai buna decat cea italiana (envy point nr.5). Ok.

Acum ceva ultra important. La plecare, in aeroport, nu umblati dupa parfumuri si alte lucruri care le gasiti oriunde in lume. Cumparati Royce Chocolate. CAt mai mult posibil! Da, si Tokyo Banana cake ori Strawbery Cake from Ginza (alternativ), Green Tea Latte etc. Royce valoreaza 100 envy points, trust me!!!

ps. Mai intrati pe-aici, probabil mai scriu descre Japonia si alte calatorii.

  13. I've been fascinated by Japan for as almost as I could remember. I have definitely wanted to go there since I was 10 years old. When I was a kid I used to surprise Japanese tourists by saying good morning to them in Japanese! I never learned Japanese (I still know only a handful of expressions I learned as a kid) but I did read a lot about their culture and I find it absolutely fascinating...

    Fabulous photos, thank you for sharing...and I really enjoyed your text!
