On Aug 18 the luxury cruise ship "QUANTUM of the SEAS" arrived at the port of Osaka.  I took 4 guests from Indonesia to Osaka Castle Dotonbori and Abeno Harukas.
Osaka Castle is beautifully reflected on the pond.

Yuba

Guests wanted to have "Yuba".  It is a speciality of Kyoto food.  This skin is formed when soy milk is heated.  It is not only delicious but highly nutritious, a lot of protein.  Almost all the Yuba is made in Kyoto and a bit expensive.

We enjoyed touring the Shihmizu area with Hideo. He was waiting for us when we got off the ship and took us to many places. Our only suggestion for the future is that because he is rather soft-spoken a microphone and speaker would be helpful as it was difficult to hear him in the back of the van. Other than that we wholeheartedly recommend him
