it's so damn hard to get anywhere without speaking japanese and a sense for orientation. i just tried to go the museum takahashi-san gave me a ticket for, i circled the buildings, but without any luck. so i wanted to go back and do some shopping and it was after half an hour of walking that i realized that somewhere i had turned 180° and now was where i had never been before. and most certainly not where i wanted to be. but, as every bad incidence also has a good side, there were a lot of beautiful things on my way back, and, had i not made this long way across town, i wouldn't have seen a church crammed between two concrete houses, an old man taking his cat out for a walk and the sunset on dotombori river.
