As many of you know, the school year start in April in Japan.

My niece has just graduated from junior high this March, so

she and 3 of her friends planned a trip to Osaka for their graduation.

It was trip alone for the 4 kids!!

 

Leaving Shimane 7:00 am took about 4 and a half hours drive on

high way bus (the red dot on the left of the map below to the right dot).

Tomo-chan went down around 0:30 I think.

Meru, Kan-chan and I stayed up late to watch some videos on YouTube

and some videos on their cell phone.

I am glad I took a nap in the evening otherwise I would surely fell asleep

at first no doubt!

ともちゃんが次に寝落ち。

メルちゃん、かんちゃん、わたしはYouTubeのビデオや携帯で撮った
