This is the first post of many of my trip to Osaka with the United Royals crew. We start the early morning with me Sara and Amy at SFO waiting for our flight to Osaka.
Our flight was delayed three hours, so we decided to get lunch at the airport. Getting sushi was a tease to what we will be eating in Japan.
Haters can’t touch them, these sunglasses are Gucci.
After waiting the 3 hours, United Airlines cancelled our flight and we had to reschedule to a 7pm flight, which would be 7 hours later…. So, I hit up Clinton and he happened to have a free day after class. We decided we would make use of this 7 hour delay and hang in SF.
The hero, Baeton.
Baeton took us to New England Lobster Market for some lobster rolls.
Heaven inside a toasty bread. This is the seasonal lobster roll.
Sara recording for her Japan trip vlog and Amy showing off her drinking abilities.
Amy really wanted to go check out this hill where there’s a swing that over looks the city. Turns out the swing was broken…
We still got an incredible view of the city.
Clinton all HOODRATstuff out.
Sara in her gremlin mode.
An Amy in her arm less gremlin mode.
Girls just want to have fun.
Next stop would be Mitchell’s Ice Cream for some grasshopper pie!
One of my favorite spots in San Francisco.
Messy eaters, I can’t take them anywhere.
We ventured across the rainbow bridge to show Sara and Amy this sick view.
We’re so close to the clouds.
Thanks Vinh for letting Clinton use your truck!
First time ever getting a successful jump shot.
Too bad Sara and Amy were dressed for a 13 hour flight and not for a dangerous and sexy graffiti shoot.
Amy made it work tho.
More good news! United Airlines flight that we had at 7PM also got cancelled and the next flight out would be in 2 days. We hurried back to SFO to see what United could do for us and the only way to get to Japan on time was to take a flight to Tokyo and stay there for a night then catch another flight down to Osaka… And that’s what we did.
10 hours later… We were in Tokyo after 2 delays and 2 cancelled flights. We arrived at 10pm and Sara had Hiroki pick us up from Haneda airport for dinner.
First thing that was bought, Calpis Soda.
We couldn’t decide on what to eat, so we ended up getting McDonalds.
Only thing cool about McDonald’s here is that everything comes with an egg.
Impossible to make McDonald’s sexy.
Across the street was a 711 and we had to get our convenience store fix. Check out all of the delicious JDM candy.
Got back to our hotel and I decided to try take some bokeh self portrait shots. Did not come out like I expected..
Tokyo is so beautiful and we’re not even near the major cities.
Thanks Clinton and Hiroki for taking us around! It was an eventful journey to Japan and I’m glad we made it despite all the problems. Check back tomorrow for some more Japan adventures!
