As you can read in my post HERE, we had an epic fail peg with the sister during getting an NBI clearance in Osaka. So after a week, we came back to Osaka for my NBI clearance. Still, Philippine system is the same even here. By that Philippine system, I hope you already know what I mean. (random rambling here...) After half a day in the embassy, at last we're done. To cure the bad trip of both of us, we decided to go to Universal city where Universal Studios Japan is located. October 2012 was our scheduled trip to USJ but unfortunately, a week before that I had my chicken pox made in Japan. What a great timing, right?!? That's why all reservations were cancelled and the trip in USJ were off. But, done is done. I don't regret it already since I went with many companions in USJ this year. If you haven't read it, see it HERE. Well, back here, we just decided to go to Universal City Walk (outside of Universal Studios premises) during our half day in Osaka.

The hottest part of Japan during summer but is the most visited during autumn because of its famous "kouyou" or autumn leaves. November of last year, we accidentally been to Kyoto with the sister. Yes, accidentally. No plans of going there that time but because of wasn't able to check the holiday of Philippine embassy in Osaka, we end in Kyoto. The plans were after getting NBI clearance for my visa renewal, we will just explore a little in Osaka but because there was a long time to spare, we end up going back in the track and stopped in Kyoto and was able to see for the first time the famous Golden Pavilion and the Kiyomizudera temple. Both were most visited attractions in Kyoto.
The Golden Pavilion itself. What a beauty right? Such in awe upon seeing this glittering pavilion. (exaggerated though...LOL...)
