A Japanese tourist has set a Guinness World Record for making a trek to Osaka Sightseeing, a sightseeing attraction in the northern city.
Shiromichi Ueda made the trek to the park from Tokyo’s Ikebukuro neighborhood on Sunday to get a closer look at the sights.
He said the sightseeing was “just amazing.”
Ueda is a member of the Japan Sightseeing Association.
He is from a family of sightseeing aficionados who visit Osaka.
They often visit the nearby Yamanote Shrine, where a statue of a dragon was built.
The shrine is also home to a statue in the form of a man dressed in black and white, the colors of the traditional garb worn by the local population.
The sightseeing trip was a chance to take a closer glimpse of the Kyoto Metropolitan Government building and the Kyoto International Airport.
The sightseeing has long been a popular way to get to the city and has become a popular destination for international tourists, especially Japanese.
Ueda said he was excited to make the trip from Tokyo.
He said the trip was not only to get an overview of the city, but also to see the new airport that opened in April.
“It is nice to see new things like the new air-conditioned airplanes and to see Japan in all its glory,” he said.
“I am a bit scared when I come back home and think that we might not see any more landmarks in Osaka.
I am not sure that we will be able to see them anytime soon.”
