|Because we had some time until our flight from|
Yakushima back to Osaka left, we stopped at a the
pillow lava site - but we did not succeed imagining
pillows here. Though, so we took some pics.
It took us almost three hours to get from the domestic to the international airport in Osaka! It's incredible. I personally would not like to live in a city of 2.6 million - not to speak about the metropolitan region Osaka with more than 19 million. Even in my home city, where only 70'000 persons live, I sometimes feel anonymous, but this! So we crawled our way through monorails, subways and local trains, through large crowds at the stations, until we finally arrived at the Osaka-Kansai airport hotel. Nice experience that we got our squealing suitcase wheels oiled and brought to our room by a bellhop in an uniform.
