7D6N Osaka & Kyoto Itinerary + Travelogue 2019 #DuckyFishyOsaka #DuckyFishyKyoto

Osaka Kyoto Itinerary 2019

As you know, Crystal and I won a trip to Osaka (thanks to atta.ai) and we just came back recently if you have been following the travelogues posted recently! For those asking about our 7D6N Osaka – Kyoto itinerary 2019, I’ve compiled them all here in this post for easy reading! Note that this is a relatively budget itinerary and we resisted shopping (okay, I resisted shopping).

Most importantly – we had FUN on our 2019 girls trip to Osaka-Kyoto! 🙂 #DuckyFishyOsaka #DuckyFishyKyoto


And of course, I have PLENTY of travel lobangs to share to help you save $$ for your trip! Traveling is expensive after all~
