  • Very busy and crowded, but good food and shopping all around! Went to have Takoyaki and Okonomiyaki as it is a must in Osaka!  more »
  • Even though it has been many times ... but it's not the day or the night, seeing that the solid fruit is going to stop and take a picture again, presumably this is the unique attraction here.
