Japan Day 8: Osaka!

Aug 12, 2016 |
It was so sad leaving Kyoto - I think it was by far my favorite city. And as each day passes, we're feeling a bit more tired and worn, it's getting harder to post lol. 

We ended up waking up a bit late and traveling out to Osaka around noon. The ride was kind of crowded and so quick. I was literally jammed between 3 backpacks. It was the first time I actually felt claustrophobic and motion sickness. 

When we got off, we dropped off our bags at the hotel, got our new wifi device (Yes praise the Lord!) and were off to Dotonburi street to eat and shop. Dotonburi street is a gorgeous, crowded street filled with life! It was tons of shops and food! Its also home to Osakas favorites foods - takoyaki, yakitori, okonomiyaki and gyoza. One of Fel's favorite foods is takoyaki - or octopus balls so we decided to hit up as many placesto eat them. We tried regular balls, balls with egg and crispy balls (lol ayy) They were so tender, yet chewy - it's no wonder they are famous here! My fave was definitely the crispy one! The crunch gave it something so unique - its no wonder their line was so long!

After, we opted to go back to the room and take a nap since I didnt feel great still from the ride. Then when we woke up, it looked like dotonburi street had just woken up too. So we headed back out to hit up the arcades, drink some beers and have delicious sushi. 

Perfect way to cap off the evening! Cant wait to explore Osaka more!
