First day in Japan. Saturday/Sunday were the travel days to Osaka. We left Minneapolis at about 7:45 or so, and arrived in Osaka about 3:30 local time. Then it was immigration, customs, gathering our group (16), and taking a bus to a nearby stop. At the stop, our hosts had us attach huge labels with our names and room numbers, the tags were color coded for our building. Between the bus stop and the apartments, we ate at a place called Gusto.
Now, the pictures:

Beautiful sunset as we were taxiing out to the runway
