Splendid colours and a nasty cold, that sums up the last few days in Osaka. This time, no long tell, just photos. Enjoy and see you soon for more!


Spending way too much time alternating translations and real estate visits, until now I couldn't really enjoy this stay in Japan. Last weekend, I finally then took a real day off in Osaka.

My day in a nutshell: Môningu - Asabulo - Lion Curry - Sanpatsu - Sushi - Fouquet...


During the last few months, I surely neglected Fukuchan. Mea Culpa! A few reasons (excuses...): Too many translations, a broken foot and a bit of laziness.

If I may paraphrase Tolkien :-).
After 6 weeks in Japan, I'm back in gloomy gray Germany and I already can't wait for the next trip to Far East! 

Fortunately, it won't be for very long, I booked last week the next plane ticket and will return to Nihon the 20th of M...


Back in Osaka since 10 days, I just finished the diary of a great journey with customers to Shikoku, the wild pearl of south Japan. Following the recommandation of one participants to the trip, I used a new platform called Polarsteps. It's a great tool! Enjoy the journ...
