After this we did a little more shopping and then enjoyed dinner at a Spanish restaurant. I know we are in Osaka and instead of eating Okonomiyaki we ate Spanish food, but you know what it was really good! Makes me look forward to my vacation in December!!! Of course, I will go into more detail about that when the time comes.
For now, this was my visit to Osaka for the day. We also had our pictures taken in a Purikura booth! The photo booth makes you look good and you can make your eyes look huge! I will post those photos next!

Of course, they have a few different options. They do offer a Russian Roulette, where 5 of the 6 takoyaki balls are regular flavors and then the 6th one has Wasabi only in it. They all look the same on the outside so you won't know until you bite into it. You could order a plate and play a game with your friends, if you are into that sort of thing. We were not so we ordered the other options!
We also made a pit stop at a Vietnamese Restaurant for a refreshing mid-shopping fruit refreshment. We also stopped at a egg custard shop, but we ate those too quickly (hey they were small!) to take a photo of. Plus, the shop is minuscule and had no seating area so we had to stand and eat. Oh the manner rules we were breaking by doing that....the shame, oh the shame! oh well, they were good and worth the shame! (*^-^*)

This sign is famous in Japan. Maybe it's because it's a funny looking sign, maybe because it's so big, or maybe it's because it has been here for so long. For whatever reason this sign is famous and when people visit (mostly Japanese people) they take a photo of this sign. Many like to pose in front of the sign. Of course, on a nice day the view of the river is lovely, but who wants to see that? lol

In the next post, I will show you some photos of Osaka. This train dropped us off at Namba station so we were close to Dotonbori, it's the name of the area and is famous for having the Glico sign....don't worry I will show you a photo!
