Such great, accurate, story telling bert! That was such a fun improvised day. I definitely need to revisit San Antonio now. Osaka and Himeji made for a fantastic combo, but I will for sure reserve more time for Osaka proper next visit! Can't wait for your next update.

working on the next update - Nagashima Spaland.. it's a biggie and likely will take me most of the week to get up.

but I had filed a pic in that day, that's from the transfer day:

Elissa's message to the group showing us that the luggage had arrived from universal port.

enjoy the exciting bonus picture ! :devil:

^ It still amazes me in Japan that luggage could arrive in a hotel lobby out in the open and remain perfectly safe.

^I know! The New Yorker in me hates this with every fiber of my being and it took me years to feel comfortable with it. Now I'm like "Sure send your laptop and passport and prescription meds by some random guy in a truck to be left unguarded in a hotel lobby!"

so Monday morning we got up pretty dang early - we had to: we were going to be spending the day at Nagashima Spaland, and checking out their brand new RMC, Hakugei !

The park opened at 9:30 am, but we were to meet in the lobby at 6:45 to catch a 7am train to Kuwana Station (and then a taxi ride to get to the park ~1 hour prior to open.

Great report! Congratulations for now ruining every single free spin in the United States. :lol:

I remember Ultra Twister having a brutal brake at the far end, but found it smooth otherwise.
