On the water—what passes by is not the landscape, but your memories

Osaka's AquaLiner water bus is one of the very popular sightseeing tours in Osaka. At first glance, the bus looks like a submarine in the river , and sitting on the bus, looking through the glass windows, you see the river outside fluctuating bit by bit with the 🚤, the 🌸 by the roadside and the city gradually receding, it feels like watching 'The Unbearable Lightness of Being' as the landscape slowly merges with emotions. What passes by is not the landscape, but your own memories, bit by bit they pass and can never return. There's a question, what is something that can never come back? Is it time? Is it loved ones? Or is it one's own passion? I believe none of these are complete, I think it's the end, once it's over, it can never return, the disappearing landscapes step by step, like things that have ended and can never come back. I wish everyone to seize every moment around them 🎈 As a 🚰 city, Osaka has hundreds of bridges and rivers, forming numerous water sightseeing routes. The Osaka AquaLiner water bus has 4 main piers: Osaka Castle Port, Hachikenya Hama Pier, Yodoyabashi Port, and OAP Port, offering views of the cityscape from Osaka to Nakanoshima. (If you come during the cherry blossom season, the 🌸 along both banks of the river are incredibly beautiful) The Osaka AquaLiner has multiple boarding routes, and tourists can board at any of the 4 piers. 🚌 Don't worry about not having enough seats or not making it in time (the Osaka AquaLiner is actually a cruise-like mode of transportation that can accommodate hundreds of passengers). The whole process takes about an hour, during which you can enjoy the cityscape and natural scenery here. ⚠️ Boarding locations: 'Osaka Castle Port', 'Hachikenya Hama Pier', 'Yodoyabashi Port', 'OAP Port' - any one of these is fine Tour duration: About 40 minutes Operating hours: Osaka Castle Port 10:15~16:15 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday only: 17:20/18:05/18:50) 🎟Tips Items to purchase in advance: 1. SIM card 2. IC card 3. Recommended to buy a two-day pass (you can go to many places and take some buses and subways for free) 4. Kimono experience at Kiyomizu Temple (don't say I'm not patriotic, it's just experiencing different cultural features) 5. Hotel reservation (better location) 5. Selfie stick (highly recommended, very useful in many places, just a few tens of yuan, very practical)
