Highlights from My 3rd Trip to Japan in December 2013

I got to go work in Japan for a third time this year.  I spent most the time in Osaka and spent my Saturday in Kyoto.  Here are some of the highlights from my trip.

On Saturday, a friend took me to Kyoto for a day.  We went around to a few places and had dinner (many tofu dishes) before going back to Osaka.  It was a fun day.
