Here are pictures from Osaka and Nara over the Obon Holiday in the summer of 2011. David and I took a trip down to the Kansai region with our karate teacher, Mr. Sasaki, and his family. Mrs. Sasaki's extended family lives in and around Osaka, so we stayed at their house and did sightseeing for a few days.
