When you visit Osaka, at first you should eat kushikatsu !

I traveled in Osaka end of the last month. We stayed there two nights and we did nothing but eating 😛
At first, we got to Kansai airport from Narita airport and then went to Namba by train.
Well, I’m grateful that I’m in Chiba just only when I use Narita airport 😛
It takes me only 40 minutes to there. I want Narita Airport will be more expand !!

After getting to Namba, we left our baggage with the hotel and then went toward main street of foods, Dotonbori.
It was so busy, and confused street. That’s the OSAKA !
Almost all signboards are loud !!

Also the shop that we entered at first  on this trip.
Kushikatsu Daruma Dotonbori branch

Appearance, Ganso-Kusikatsu Daruma Dotonbori (Osaka2014-1)


Its neighborhood shop have shrine’s lantern !!

It was very clean and the waiter and waitress was more friendly than the shop that I had been by myself before.
That’s like chain store 🙂
Anyway, my drink was coke, and fresh cabbage came.
