Another long post of Osaka—Tsutenkaku通天閣.
It is the most Osaka place of Osaka.
In the afternoon.
A lot of people queued to go up to the tower.
Famous kushikatsu–Skewered chicken, pork, seafood, and seasonal vegetables.
Lotus root skewer, with Tonkatsu sauce.
Osaka is also famous for Okonomiyaki (literally means “cook whatever you like”).
Get to cook you own Okonomiyaki!
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!
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.
This is the porn theatre in Tsutenkaku. Super geram >_<
After the whole tragic experience, it got dark.
This is my favorite picture so i am posting it twice!
Very happening Osaka.
One of the Kushikatsu shop.
We went go to game center (to cheer me up).
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!
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.
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.
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.
We won something. With like 50 balls. (After spending like a few thousand yen)
“I have been to Osaka. Osaka is a town full of an interesting thing”.
After that went Pachinko.
THIS DUDE WON SO MUCH MONEY
Also cheat one. Lost like dunno how much in a few minutes.
We won money from slots!!
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.
And we got 8,000 yen.
And then went for dinner! At a sushi place.
Order whatever you want and see how it is made!
This is like the biggest amaebi sushi i’ve ever seen. It tasted like this: 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀
Kazunoko (herring roe).
End of Osaka.
Really intresting 😀
For the porn theatre, do they have a sign that tell us not to jerk in the cinema.
Like the no eating sign in Malaysia?
Hahaha are you serious?!
yum yum~ the sushi looks very delicious to me!
Looks like Osaka is not a bad place for game and food~ ;p
Excluding the theatre
It makes me want to go visit Japan!
MORE PICS please!!! haha
Why you so lucky got G10 one?
The first photo with all the lanterns and the bigass statue reminds me of Spirited Away, which is IMHO the best movie ever.

Haha… kinda miss your Japanese posts. Btw, what camera did you use to take all your Japanese pictures? It all looks very very good la.
i think i mentioned at least 4 times now. Plus all the comments it’s about 10 times. G10.
Cheesie, love your pictures so much..! Am thinking to buy G10, too…. Is it easy to use?
Once you get used to it it is amafreakingzing.
the food looks super delicious… and the pachinko thingy, looks like fun (get to know them in an anime)…
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!
Sushi…looks super fresh man. But then the err…Sazaenotsubayaki…what is in that?! O_o
i did i did i did!!! but i didnt remember that part. According to wiki, Sazae is shellfish ogre. what turf.
damn… all of sudden im hungry again -_-
My fav uni sushi. Lucky you. I think Japan forbade gambling one so the pachinko have to go so indirectly.
hehe…in osaka now. just get back to the guest house from namba. the sushi here is so nice and cheap. okinomiyaki and takoyaki balls, yummy!
