Weekly Roundup #8

This week I have been:

Watching: sumo wrestling!! On Saturday we went to Osaka to see the sumo wrestling, it was so much fun. I had previously watched it on the telly but found it not very interesting. However watching it live, in the stadium, is a great experience.

Visiting: Osaka Castle. I can't believe I have never been before. It was great for the history nerd inside me. I wish we had had more time but we had to rush a bit to get to the sumo in time to see a special ceremony.

Photographing: more plum blossom. Outside Osaka castle they have a lovely plum grove which we wandered around. They are still not in full bloom but it was very beautiful. 

Studying: a lot. My final tests at the Japanese school I go to are this week. Plus I have to write a speech. In Japanese.

Listening: Sweater Weather by The Neighbourhood.


  1. i don't think i've ever visited Osaka castle as an adult - it's my dad's home city, and I've gone there often but never really done any real sight seeing. i would love to though! x

    1. Unfortunately it's not the original one, so the inside is concrete, but they have a great museum with lots about the history of Japan and the castle. The outside is beautiful though.

  2. Woah... good luck with your language tests!
