Japanese architecture - Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan and a Travel Tip - via A Japan Photo per Day -

Kaiyukan Aquarium, Osaka

Osaka is a city with many architecturally interesting buildings and amongst them the Aquarium Kaiyukan certainly stands out. Inaugurated in 1990, Aquarium Kaiyukan was designed by Peter Chermayeff LLC, an American company specialized in aquarium architecture. The best angle to admire its shape is from… above and the nearby Tempozan Ferris Wheel offers the best opportunity for this (as you can see from this photo).

Travel tip: If you like to visit it (and I warmly recommend it), you can buy the Osaka KAIYU Ticket (2400 yen) a pass valid for one day, which offers entrance to the museum (which by itself costs 2000 yen) and unlimited rides on subway lines, new tram lines and city buses in Osaka city. Plus 50% discount to 30 other attractions, like the Tempozan Ferris Wheel mentioned above (which costs 700 yen) or the Osaka Bay Cruise Santa Maria (which is 1500 yen).

Japanese customs and traditions - the Ring of Wisdom - via A Japan Photo per Day -

Wisdom lantern, Amanohashidate

There are many places in Japan where the tradition says that if you perform some unusual act, you will get something in return. Probably the most famous such place is inside the Todaiji Temple from Nara, but I recently found something similar in Amanohashidate.

An old Buddhist teaching says that “Out of the counsel of three comes the wisdom of Monju”, Monju being the Bodhisattva of wisdom. The meaning of this saying is that three heads think better than one, but related to this, a strange belief appeared here, according to which if you will pass 3 times through a “wisdom lantern” - a ring of stone called Chienowa Tourou, Monju will grant you wisdom. But since the ring is placed quite high, I guess not many people are trying…

Paris was very beautiful, but the smell of urine just saturated the place. When I talked about it on the internet a few people responded with, "Even the airport smells like pee :C"
I have no idea what the Frenchmen are up to at night, but it must be fun. XD

Technically the flag on Brother France should be mirrored because we see him from the back, but no doubt people wouldn't notice and keep asking me why it was the wrong way.

via All Work and No Play - Scandinavia and the World

After the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 the Scandinavian countries took good care of the Hungarian refugees, and the Hungarians were so grateful for all the help that they worked extra hard and only had short breaks so they could pay the Scandinavians back. Unfortunately it made the other workers look bad, so it had to be explained to them that they had to rest more and relax a bit. The Hungarians were amazed that they were told to just sit around and eat food and drink beer and thought they had gone to heaven. XD

I asked a Hungarian what the Hungarians stereotypically looked like, and he said, "He should have an impressive moustache! We are famous for our mustaches!" so that us why he ended up like this.

Oh, get a room you two!

America is super popular in Japan, and Japan is super popular in America, though most everyday people in either country don't know this.

I talked to a Japanese woman who told me that when she went to USA everything felt so familiar because they watched so many American movies in Japan and she almost felt at home, but when she went to Europe she had no idea what to do with herself.

Japanese customs and traditions - Moon-viewing festival - via A Japan Photo per Day -

Umeda Sky Building, Osaka

Today in Japan takes place Tsukimi, the Moon-viewing festival. According to the Japanese tradition, this is the best moment to admire the moon, because during this period of the year the full moon is brighter and prettier than usual.

To admire the full moon in Japan, you can visit a shrine or a temple or, why not, you can enjoy the view next to a spectacular skyscraper, like I did near the Umeda Sky Building from Osaka, which I think is the most beautiful skyscraper from Japan.
