Osaka

View from the first hotel in Osaka.

Holy bread.

I miss the french cuisine.

We were looking for a bar in the neighbourhood, we passed around this building, decided to walk further and go back there later.

image
The signes of the bars appealed to me a lot.

We walked until the third floor, the door of the Acid Ganja bar was open, with loud music coming from the inside, so we decided to give it a try. It was very fun! The woman on the podium is called Junko, she is also the crazy and lovely owner of another great bar in the building. The best looking bar I've ever been to.

The next day we went to a festival near Osaka. In this festival there are over thirty carts like in this picture that are pulled through the city at often breakneck speeds. Some of the carts are pulled by more than hundred persons of all genders and ages. Each person has its own specific task, like cornering the cart by pulling it sideways for example. Also, at the top of the cart, the leader - the carpenter of the massive wooden cart - dances like a madman under loud drums played by others on the cart.

At night lanterns are lit on the carts and everything returns to a much more leisurely speed. The member drink some beers and enjoy themselves, exhausted after two day of cart pulling. The drums are still loud, and the boy on the cart obviously had enough of it.

Back in Dotonbori, the Travelgar Square of Osaka.

This "seat" was in the lift of our first hotel, you can use it as a toilet in case the lift went off or put some deodorant on.

In Japan or in Korea, you don't cut meat with a knife but with scissors.

We spent one night in a love hotel, probably the biggest hotel room we had so far, with jacuzzi and all.
image
We went to an owl cafe also, so cute right? But we felt bad after because those cuties belong outside.

A cute little street.

Our last hotel is Osaka.

This love hotel has a Christmas theme...

image
We visited a castle also, a bit of culture can't be that harmful
image
Here we are walking in the building with all the nice bars again for our last night in Osaka.
image
The door to heaven.
image
It's much beter to experience it with you own eyes but this place is heaven to me. S.
