Nagai Park

Before I left for Osaka, best friend tried to convince me that Japan rail network isn't as complex as it looks. She visits Japan almost yearly and she speaks a smattering of the language, so I believed her whole-heartedly. Unlike my other trips, I did not do my homework.

We all know Japan has one of the most extensive and reliable rail networks in the world. The trains are clean, modern and punctual. We also learned that they are exceptionally quiet.

When we arrived at Kansai Airport, I got hold of the railway map and almost passed out just by looking at the maze of coloured lines, dots and Japanese words. I've traveled on many railways around the world but this one really takes the cake. There are lines that travel inter-city and subways that serve the downtown areas.

Of course when we had just landed, all these didn't make much sense. On the first day, I constantly asked the friendly staff for directions. By the second day, I had no trouble traveling about like a pro.

We landed in Osaka at 6am and enroute to our hotel, we decided to stop by Nagai Botanic Gardens. Luckily we were traveling quite light but walking for many hours under the sun with a backpack was no cakewalk.
