Finally managed to register. I'm an old fart. Have been to japan 4 times over the last 8 or so years. First visit(s) were stopover in Kyoto and Tokyo on way to/from Canada.Only a couple of nights. Second trip was a week or so in Tokyo, ditto third trip. Fourth and Fifth trips around 10 days each in Osaka - I prefer it to Tokyo. Stayed in Namba area - convenient to Namba Walk for eateries on the cheap, BIC Camera store, Umeda, Den Den Town etc. May be visiting again in June whilst wife is in Europe. Tourist ( from Oz Down Under).
