Japan Back Street Exploring (Part 2)

As I mentioned in the first Japan Back Street Exploring post, I have many wonderful photos, memories, and experiences of traveling the lesser trod (by foreigners) streets of Japan.

Here are some more back street shots from both Kobe, Osaka and Kyoto, Japan.

A quiet back street in the Tsukamoto District of Osaka, Japan near the Yodo River. Some might consider this a relatively lower-class area, but the residents took great pride in maintaining its tidy appearance.
