Ruffa Gutierrez and bf Jordan Mouyal's "happy life" in Osaka and Kyoto, Japan

Ruffa Gutierrez and her boyfriend Jordan Mouyal picked Japan as their third Asian destination this year.


Ruffa Gutierrez and boyfriend Jordan Mouyal, along with 40 friends, flew to Japan on Sunday, June 12.

Their travel group picked Osaka, the country's "merchant city" because of its ports and "nation's kitchen," and also made a stop in Kyoto, which used to be the imperial capital.

On top of their itinerary is the famous landmark Osaka Castle, which—according to Osaka.Net—has 600 cherry trees, 95 kinds of Japanese apricot flowers, and 1,250 trees."
