After eating akashiyaki at Bubutei, we enjoyed ferris wheel.

The ferris wheel is on the top floor of the building that is named Hep Five.
The bright red ferris wheel is conspicuous at a distance.

I want to go there again at night. The night view must be wonderful.

After that we walked around Umeda station.

This shop was so hard to find for us. It can be seen from ticket barrier, but we came from the opposite side and shop is entirely hidden by the wall. So small stand.

It cost us only 140 yen, but I was amazed. I felt mix juice is tasty for the first time. I wanted to have a second helping 😛

Then, we went back to Namba for preparing French dinner.
….. oh ?

I was anxious that we ate too much before dinner…

At Osaka, there are two major butaman shops. 551 Horai and Futami.
We already had eaten 551 Horai before, so, we tried Futami’s butaman that time.
But I don’t like the strong sweetness of onions. As a whole I didn’t like the cooked onions’ sweetness.But Futami’s is more popular than 551 Horai’s around me.
