Farewell Japan

July 28th, 2012

Osaka Nipponbashi

So these are my last few hours in glorious Japan. I will be leaving for the airport shortly…. But before leaving I went to Nipponbashi one last time. Played some Street Fighter, jubeat and most importantly got to see the Yuru Yuri exhibition. Im sure my friend Tac will be so jealous right now.

The photos of the Yuru Yuri exhibition are somewhere at the bottom:
