Gallery: Osaka so far

The Manchester United players have been enjoying the sun of Osaka for the last couple of days.

The squad boarded the bullet train from Yokahama Station on Thursday morning, much to the delight of local commuters, before arriving at Shin-Osaka Station.

The players took part in a gym session on Friday morning before a busy day of commercial activities, the highlight of which was the launch of the 2013/14 away kit at Osaka Castle.

After David Moyes and Shinji Kagawa addressed the local media at a pre-match press conference at the Osaka Nagai Stadium, the squad took part in an open training session in front of 5,000 fans ahead of Friday's clash with Cerezo Osaka.
