Osaka Castle

We went to Osaka Jou (castle) the saturday before last with a Japanese friend of Casey and Dave's. It was boiling outside that day (that whole week, actually) so we were sweating buckets, but it was a lot of fun too.

Dave was being a nina, because everyone knows how well that worked out for them when they tried to scale the walls and attack. (Yumi, the Japanese person in our group and thereby guide, also tried to climb the wall a bit, and I think got higher than anyone else. Sort of sad I didn't get a picture of that, actually.)

This is the main castle building. The fenced in part on top is the eighth floor, I think, which is an observation deck.

Also, since we figured out how to use skype properly (and when Ohio isn't being hit by a hurricane) I get to talk to the family online! Which sometimes ends up with odd technological setups. Example, this picture I took of my computer screen where Betsy, Dad and I are on skype, and Mom and Gammy are both on speaker phone on two different cell phones. I think includes covers people in four different locations.
