NAKANOSHIMA ISLAND | On the river, Osaka No.2

About six months have already passed since I last posted the same title on the thread.
This time I again walked through around Nakanoshima Island.
Thanks to nice weather, I believe I took better pictures compared with before.
I hope you will enjoy seeing all pictures!

Taken on October 12, 2008.
It's a national holiday of Health-sports day here in Japan.

Nakanoshima railway line will be opening soon.

If you can, please post pictures of the new Keihan line when it opens next week...
The stations are really quite exceptional and are steps above from the ubiquitous "trainshed" stations.

OK, I'll try to take the new Keihan line pictures next time!!
Keihan has become more stylish than before.
It's become so easy to go to Kyoto.

Yet again, nice pictures, crossword. It looks very nice there. I noticed that the leaves are starting to change colour. They really start changing now? It'll be another month until they start changing colour up here in Kanto.

Yes, the leaves are changing colour gradually in my eyes
and I feel the most beautiful season in Japan is just around the corner!
Kanto is a little faster than Kansai to see the autumn colour.
I think Kamakura might be so crowded with tourists this season.
But so beautiful there, I believe.
As for me, I'm planning to visit some of temples in Kyoto .

I would think Kanto would be a bit earlier than Kansai, but all of the trees around here are completely green. Nothing has changed colour yet. But yeah, Kamakura is beautiful in autumn. I'd love to see Kyoto during autumn!

Awesome. I looks almost frighteningly clean and organized without coming off as sterile. Lovely!

Those subway platforms are almost unbelievable to a New Yorker like me. Ours are often so gross, dirty and in disrepair. Must be nice... Osaka looks very interesting.
