2014 Japan Trip Day 11: Osaka

But whatever you do, under no circumstances should you join the traditional New Years jump off Shinsaibashi Bridge >.> Seven people where injured and one person died this year alone :/

Everything was worth it though, when we finally reached The Wizarding World of Harry Potter after waiting about seven hours in line.

Free-roaming deer kept following us around while we took in the shrine’s sights, hoping for some food in the form of senbei rice crackers.

If Meiji Shrine was our home shrine, then Asakusa Temple was our home temple, and we always tried to visit with every trip.
