Day 8

After sleeping in a bit and lounging at the hotel pool, we saw a Broadway-equivalent show, Scarlett Pimpernel. The show was entirely in Japanese and had an all female cast. I counted maybe 10 men in the theater, and one of them worked for the theater. We also think we were the only two foreigners in the audience.

From here we went to the Suntory brewery. They had an impressive whiskey library as well as a museum where they talked about how Suntory was the first Japanese whiskey, which was only in 1923.

Last for the day, we visited Osaka castle. They had lots of samurai stuff as well as some nice paintings of various battles in the area.
