Falconry at Osaka Castle

When I visited Osaka-jo with my parents, we saw a group of several middle-aged men with their birds of prey. I think that they often meet on Osaka Castle’s premises. The men were sitting nearby the west entrance of the castle, like old acquaintances, caring for their birds. If you happen to be in the area of Osaka castle on a weekend, pay them a visit and you may be lucky and given the privilege of holding a bird of prey!

Gaijin San

Since my better half is Japanese I often have the chance to travel to Japan. I grew fond over time of this magnificent country. I thought of sharing with you some places worth visiting in this little but growing travel guide to Japan. I try to show with images what I can’t express with words. I hope you may find here some inspiration!

For those who wonder, I chose the moniker Gaijin-San after being called like this by a waitress at a grilled eel restaurant. “Gaijin” means foreigner and “San” is a honorific suffix in Japanese.
