Another long post of Osaka—Tsutenkaku通天閣.

It is the most Osaka place of Osaka.

Osaka is also famous for Okonomiyaki (literally means “cook whatever you like”).

tsutenkaku5 by you.

Get to cook you own Okonomiyaki!

tsutenkaku3 by you.

First, choose the ingredient and then fry the batter. Wa i super like the chop chop chop metal spetula effect.

then use the 3-minute hour glass!

tsutenkaku8 by you.

When it’s ready, add mayo, seaweed flakes and bonito flakes!

After that we went for dessert.

Red bean pancake, super kao butter and maple syrup. Super good.

After the whole tragic experience, it got dark.

Very happening Osaka.

tsutenkaku15 by you.

One of the Kushikatsu shop.

We went go to game center (to cheer me up).

tsutenkaku31 by you.

I was so angry can. Was playing the “hit the croc” thing and i went like shine! hentai na osan shine! shine! (Shine is like, go to hell, not like sunshine shine okay) while thumping on it super hard

Then went to Smart Ball. Some very old game machine!

tsutenkaku16 by you.

It’s sorta like pinball, or a very very ancient version of pachinko. You shoot the balls and if they drop into one of the holes, you get more balls.

tsutenkaku17 by you.

The reason why it is called smart ball, is because the balls are really smart. You can never outsmart them therefore you are always losing.

tsutenkaku18 by you.

And then you can use the balls to exchange with something. Normally snacks that are worth prolly like, 1/10th of the total  money you have spent on smart ball.

tsutenkaku19 by you.

We won something. With like 50 balls. (After spending like a few thousand yen)

tsutenkaku20 by you.

“I have been to Osaka. Osaka is a town full of an interesting thing”.

After that went Pachinko.

tsutenkaku21 by you.

THIS DUDE WON SO MUCH MONEY

tsutenkaku23 by you.

Also cheat one. Lost like dunno how much in a few minutes.

BUT!!!

tsutenkaku25 by you.

We won money from slots!!

 

tsutenkaku27 by you.

1181 medals!!

tsutenkaku28 by you.

They don’t pay you cash but in something else, which you can later bring to a dodgy old changer place to exchange for cold hard cash.

tsutenkaku30 by you.

And we got 8,000 yen.

And then went for dinner! At a sushi place.

tsutenkaku39 by you.

Super fresh!

tsutenkaku33 by you.

Order whatever you want and see how it is made!

  26. the food looks super delicious… and the pachinko thingy, looks like fun (get to know them in an anime)…

  27. LOL! The porn theatre was interesting. It was first and foremost so amusing that the 2 of you went in together. Well looks like curiosity literally killed your mood ahahaha :)

    Hey, I remembered that bit about exchanging cash for goods at some dodgy place like in the movie Kamikaze Girls. I’m sure you’ve watched that movie before? I loved both the book and the movie. So funny!
