5.28.16: Osaka!

Today we left our place around 10:30 and headed to the train station. On our way, we got some kaki no ha sushi, smoked sushi wrapped in a persimmon leaf. Beautiful and delicious! We ate it on the train ride to Osaka which was pretty nice except for us getting lost (again) while trying to transfer. But it didn’t take long for us to be back on track and soon we were eating mouthwatering Korean food with Shinji and Miyuki in a little market filled with food shops and restaurants. After the amazing lunch, we had and equally delicious dessert called Taiyaki, a Japanese fish-shaped cake filled with custard, red bean paste or chocolate that is believed to have originated in Tokyo in the Meiji period. We wandered around, and slowly made our way to the suburbs with a brief stop at a mall for some shopping (We brake for Muji!). We hung out for a bit at Shinji and Kazuna’s amazing high-rise apartment and watched a Hanshin Tigers/Tokyo Giants baseball game while we got a chance to relax for a while. We had another amazing meal at a Chinese restaurant for dinner and now we are getting ready for bed… I get to sleep in the tatami room!
