Data Sim Card at Kansai Airport. A 30 days 3GB sim card can range from 4000 yen to 9000 yen. I pickup at TRE (3GB 30 days) at JAL counter for 4500 yen. Saw another similar package selling for 4000 yen at the vending machine.
PS: Cheaper options are available in town, selling at places like BIC Camera.
Quiet and clean apartment, 20m walk away from Dotonbori area (pretty far), 10m away from the nearest JR station (good if you hold JR pass).
Hiking Mount Hiei from Sakamoto. The hike is only an hour, and there is an UNESCO temple complex at the top. Autumn had yet to turn much within the forest, but there are a few full peak maple tree near the temple.
We went up pretty late so have to give up on the plan to hike down on Kyoto side, so we take the cable car down instead.
Though I am not a fan of Soba, but this is pretty good, especially the soup.
A walking trail along farmland and temples. Seasonal fruits on sale with affordable price. Bought some persimmon which are really sweet.
Absolutely superb crepe. Sweet Mont Blanc is nice, but pork with mushroom crepe is amazing.
无敌甜品，尤其是五层肉蘑菇Crepe，Mont Blanc 甜点也好吃。
Soft cheese pancake breakfast, nice. Other options are simple but nice.
Osaka Castle Park is pretty big, beautiful and free. Only entrance to the Osaka castle need to pay.
Hiking Mount Daisen on a drizzling and misty day. Less than 5 degree Celsius on early November rainy day. The mountain is really beautiful despite totally misty at the top.
We went up on the Natsumaya mountain trail which took us less than 3 hours to reach the top, as most Japanese elders overtook us. We came down on the Gyoja trail which go through a beautiful birch autumn forest, Ogamiyama Shrine and Daisen Temple.
Besides visiting Daisenji, walk further into the Ogamiyama Shrine, which I think is more beautiful. Don't forget to stroll the walkway of the forest, which is very beautiful in Autumn.
It is a few old street and a canal, a tourist spot with some boutique shop. I would say the experience is only average.
