The arrival

Looong flight
After a looooong flight we arrived at Kansai airport around 10 am local time (02.00 swedish time). We were welcomed by Mr Daisuke from the Schubertiade Tamba 2010 and managed to fit the lute and our luggage in his tiny car. As he took us to our hotel we got to see A LOT of Osaka city. Not even a gps guarantees you to arrive quickly to your destination…But luckily for us the hotel manager met us and guided us to the hotel from his bike.  

Sushi for lunch
Mr Daisuke took us for lunch at a tiny sushi place along the Tenjinbashi-suji. It is said to be the longest straight and covered shopping arcade in Japan. 2.6 km ”shop ’til you drop” long.
