Yesterday I found out that I got into the Japan term abroad at my school (I had been number 5 on the waitlist) for the upcoming fall term. I'll be in Osaka, at Kansai Gaidai University. This will be the second time I've been to Japan, I went on a rotary sponsored trip the summer before my senior year of high school, although we only spent a day in Osaka (most of the trip was spent at various homestays on Shikoku). Anyway, I was wondering if anyone here knows what kind of stuff there is to do in Osaka (all I got to do last time I was there was go to a mall and see osaka castle, because it was our first day in japan, and we were really jetlagged). Also, I'm trying to get an idea of how much money I'm gonna need for stuff like transportation (I have no clue what the subway costs), eating out, maybe the bar scene (Coming next fall: The Have you ever been drunk thread part II: Japan )...anyway any info anyone's got would be appreciated.
