Open wide... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Osaka’s Namba Yasaka Shrine looks like something out of an amusement park. The lion’s mouth is said to swallow evil spirits and bring good luck.I almost decided to forego it because it was a bit of a walk away from the metro station but I was so glad I made it. I love this! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Often our worries and fears can get out of proportion. Having a lion of this size on hand is helpful.
Before setting out on a trip, I can get enveloped in my own crazy . … I worry about not being prepared enough, …about my trip going awry,… about having my gear stolen . Luckily these worries go away the moment I land in a city. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My instinct snaps into engineering how I’ll get from the airport to my hotel, …so as to not get lost… to getting lost, but then finding my way back to ‘found’… My thoughts become simple act of concentrating on moving one step in front of the other. I have an implicit trust in myself— not that I’ll be courageous or a daredevil — but that I’ll simply keep walking. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s the simple act which moves big things. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ----------------------------------------------------- ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #explorejapan#kansaicollection#japan#japan_vacations#japan_focus#beautifuldestinations#osakajapan#japaneseculture#osakatravel#explorejpn#globalcapture#japanesearchitecture#kyotojapan#kyoto#visitjapan#thetraveltag#worlderlust#japanculture#architecture

Went to Amagasaki (Osaka) to visit @jnakss and she took us to a hip cafe (@cafeqroth) on top of an adult store that not only has an awesome vibe and good food, but RAINBOW CHEESECAKE. 🌈 It had a nice, light lemony taste. I would frequent this cafe all the time if I lived in this area.
