Some shots from our trip to Osaka last month

Jim and I landed in Osaka pretty late at night, met up with our friend Kyle who got there a couple of days earlier and the four of us had a very late dinner along Shinsaibashi. I can’t remember what the place is called but it’s open until pretty late and we ate there twice.

Checked in at our AIRBNB which was just a few blocks away

It was a cozy apartment but big enough for 4 people. Our other friend Enzo stayed for 2 nights. Great location, too. Click here if you wanna check it out.

The next day we set out to go around Shinsaibashi and Dotonbori

Best place to buy sneakers! There's a ton of ABC MART branches around Japan.

A lot of tourists use the Glico Man as a spot for meet ups. "Let's meet by the Glico Man!" It's right by the bridge to Dotonbori

Dotonbori is where you must go to eat!!

Funniest thing while I was trying on a sweater from Puma, they asked me to wear this bag over my head so my makeup wouldn’t transfer onto their clothes. I was also asked to take off my shoes before entering the dressing room

I no longer have photos of the following days because Kyle borrowed my memory card. He shot a music video for Cheats and I promise you, it’s worth it. Can’t wait for you guys to see it!! I also thought we weren’t allowed to bring cameras to Summer Sonic. Turns out they don’t check your bags at all. My tip if you’re going to the music festival next year: bring your own booze and line up early for the bathrooms because you may spend 40 minutes in line! Oh, and don’t forget to wear sunblock!! RADIOHEAD WAS FIIIIRE.

♥,
Saab

    That’s happened to me at Uniqlo. I had to wear a bag over my face in order to try on a dress! Make sense though :)

    I seriously love Japan! I can’t wait to go back again

    You seriously make me want to have a Japan honeymoon. However, I don’t know the procedures for the visas, tour and tickets. 😩 That’s why I tweeted you earlier asking for your travel agency.. And turns out, instinct is the best travel planner! Tips? 😁

    Anyways, please say ‘Hi’ to cute guy Kyle for me. Been seeing much of him lately: your new music vid, your IG posts and then this! 😍 (But my groom can’t know about this! 😁 JK!)

      Hello!! Hahaaha! My tip would be: research, research, research!!:) Make sure not to overbook your trip with too many tours, pre-select the sights you want to see, the things you want to do, and Google what places are near each other so you can plan your daily schedule accordingly :) Good luck!!

      Hahaha okay I will say hi to Kyle for you HAHAHA

    Dear Saab, you inspire me to blog. And to bring out the cooler version of myself. I just wish I weren’t as lazy as I am so I can actually start blogging and be cool.

    I hope to see you this year. I’ve been a reader since your tumblr blogging days. It is in my 2016 goals to watch Cheats perform live, and it is already September! :-( I hope you announce a South gig soon! I will bring my boyfriend and he’s going to fall in love with you too (not like that) but you know, I know he’ll see why I am so into spellsaab. I hope I don’t sound creepy or weird. Instead, SWEET. (This font on your comment box is nice)

    Also, I am a graphic designer/sometimes artist. Can I draw something for you?
    I drew this some time ago – https://www.instagram.com/p/oRA2vTIDNg/?taken-by=chvrches

    :-)

    Hi Saab, did you get weird stares while wearing sunglasses in Japan? Alam ko kasi they think you’re dodgy/suspicious if your wearing shades.
