Osaka Castle. Our first day in Osaka was the first day we had any sunlight. For once, we were able to use shadows to help us figure out what direction we were facing, which was a very good thing cuz we would've gone the wrong direction while carrying all our luggage from the station to our new hotel. I never realized how valuable having sunlight and shadows could be, till we tried navigating Tokyo for 3 days without it (and got lost several times in the process).
