North Queen

My recent series “Calculated Chaos”, It’s featuring three famous junctions in Japan. This time I introduce “Hokkou(北港) Junction”, located North Bay junction, Osaka.

Obviously, the junction is  not a sight seeing spot,  but nearby there are popular amusement park USJ, Universal Studio Japan. Then if your kids want to go USJ , why don’t you spare time to see this crazy urban architecture?

It’s a messy place, actually  I don’t recommend the place for a tourist  who all the way come to Osaka for the first time. There are many beautiful and unique spot in Osaka and Kyoto.  But you are the one who strangely be lured to these place, this is the place you have to visit.

My gears (this time)

I want to travel light,(though it always ended up so light after all) so when I ‘m planning to walk a lot for the destination, I prefer D600 instead of D800E.
