I was very surprised to find this statue having a little holiday here.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Damon Schreiber from Toronto, Canada

I really love this one! Such beautiful tones and stark contrasts. I've spent some time in Osaka though I'm much more familiar with Kobe. How do you get to Osaka Port?

@Damon Schreiber: Thanks Damon. Easiest way to get there is on the subway. It's Osakako station on the Chuo line. Probably the most interesting thing to do down there is visit the aquarium - Osaka Aquarium is great. You never went there?

Twelvebit from Victoria, United States

I looked at them all. Fascinating images. Your photos are of particular interest to me as my son is studying Japanese and plans to live in Japan for awhile after he graduates from college.

@Twelvebit: Thank you Twelvebit. Japan is a great place, I'm sure your son will love it. What triggered his interest in Japanese? You should come over to visit once he's settled. Many interesting things to see and do.

Twelvebit from Victoria, United States

I don't know exactly what triggered his interests. Some of the influences are, of course, movies (from Akira Kurosawa to Takeshi Kitano to Takashi Miike and Seijun Suzuki) and books (Haruki Marukami is a favorite author --of mine too). I guess these things are building blocks, as the more he sees and reads the more interested he becomes. And perhaps there are things lost in our own culture that can be found or rediscovered in the Japanese culture.

@Twelvebit: I hope he will enjoy his time here.
