One Day in Osaka (Part One)

(sorry for my slow update on my blog ;__;)

On the second day in Japan, I woke up very early because I'm going to OSAKA! YEY! To reach Osaka, I must ride a Shinkansen from Tokyo. Actually, I didn't plan to visit Osaka at the first time because I already booked my room for 10 days in Tokyo. Then I crazily decide to visit Osaka from the morning and come back to Tokyo at night, hahahhaha (~ ̄▽ ̄)~ 


I laughed every time I see this stupid photo HAHAHHA (  ︶ ▽ ︶ )

The trip to osaka take about 4 hours, and I spent most of my time in the Shinkansen by sleeping, lol. And because I was in a hurry I forgot to buy any foods, so I bought some snacks inside the Shinkansen. I swear that Pocky midi and Calbee are SO OISHII!! LOL


Because Shinkansen is covered by JR Pass, I didn't pay for the Shinkansen because I got my JR Pass already. ԅ(≖‿≖ԅ)

After sleeping for a while, I wake up 30 minutes before I reach Osaka and start to dolled up, lol.

Because I haven't eat anything since the morning, so after we arrived we're looking for a place to eat. Actually, I want to go out and find other place to eat, not in the station, but my siblings were feel so hungry, lol. And we've attracted by this menu display (๑´﹃`๑ )

When you're hungry, it's hard to resist this LOL, and Osaka is famous for it's delicious food.. oh how can we wait any longer? \(//∇//)\


The place is quite small and so many people, haha but very very CLEAN. I ordered Oyakodon, a Donburi, or Japanese rice bowl dish, in which chicken, egg, sliced scallion, and other ingredients are all simmered together in a sauce and then served on top of a large bowl of rice. This time I also have a raw egg topped on it! ( ๑˃̶ ॣꇴ ॣ˂̶)♪⁺·✧


And I swear this is the best Oyakodon I've ever ate! I hate raw egg because it smells weird but in Japan the raw egg is very tasty and there's no weird smell! ヾ(¯ิ﹃¯ิ`*)ノ 'the rice is so chewy and soft, the chicken meat is very juicy and thick, everything is perfect!


                            The bowl looks small but in real it's quite deep!

I don't really remember about the price of the Oyakodon but I think it's about 700 yen.

After eat we immediately took a train to Osakajokoen Station because it's the nearest station to Osaka Castle. And we need to walk about 15-20 minutes to reach Osaka Castle. 


The road is very quiet and many people ride bicycle here. I met a kind old man who brightly greet me and compliment about my look, LOL. Later I told him I'm not Japanese and He asked if I want to go to Osaka Castle. I answered Yes and he tried to guide me hahhaahhahah luckily I was quite understand his explanation.

Actually I don't need his guidance because I have my pocket wifi, but since that Old man was so friendly I just pretend that I don't know the way at all. hahaha! (*/ω\*)



I found many pretty not-yet-bloom Sakura Tree along this small road. It's very peaceful and so beautiful, we spent a lot of times here only for taking photo LOL!


Later I check the time and we rushed to Osaka Castle, but we found this beautiful small park and there're so many plum tree here. So many beautiful flowers~~ and they're PINKKK OMG LOL




After took sooo many photos, we hurry move to Osaka Castle because our time is limited. The road to Osaka Castle is very wide, clean and peaceful. I really love this place, if I can visit Osaka again, I'll make sure to visit this Castle again just for a relaxing walk while enjoying the scenery.


I didn't take many photos during my walk to Osaka Castle because I was enjoying my time there. I want to enjoy every minute there since I still can believe that I was finally there. It was so beautiful and so peaceful, I wish there's a place like this in Jakarta..


When I reached Osaka Castle, I noticed there're so many tourist from Taiwan hahaha and also many local residents too. Although it was quite crowded but still very fun! I looked around and took some photos but distracted by the food stalls there LOL.




After took this photo I can't hold my self to start buying snacks ahahahahaha! Well, some girls probably just skip it because they afraid to be fat, but hey! It's Japan! I don't see any crucial reason to prevent me from eat and eat and eat there LOL.



Taiyaki is a Japanese fish-shaped cake. The most common filling is red bean paste that is made from sweetened azuki beans. I started to crave for this cake ever since I saw it in Shinchan LOL. (●´∀`●)

 nom, nom, nom super love The crunchy shell and the sweet azuki inside ♡


And baked sweet potato!! hahahhahahahah I also wanted to try this because of Misae /slapped, and yes Japanese baked sweet potato is very fragrant, soft and sweet. Sooo nice! No wonder she likes it so much (๑ ิټ ิ)

After we ate some snacks we start to walk again, this time we need to walk to a local Subway station and it's not covered by JR so we need to pay again for the ticket. I forgot the name of this Station  (・_・ヾ


We want to go to Dotonbori, Dotonbori is a popular tourist destination in Osaka. But our main reason is because there are a lot of foods there, yeah FOODS!! Takoyaki!! LOL (ノ≧ڡ≦) ノ

I think it is so cute how you let the old man show you the way (: Better to have a local tour guide than wifi, right?? ^_^

Also, just like you I eat everything when I travel, when will I get to try it again when it's authentic? So I can always lose weight, lol

You're just the cutest ever (◕‿‿◕。)
