We use a stick!

We were planning a big meet-up at July,then Daniel couldn't make it as he already will leave Japan that day. So we made mini meet-up with Daniel!

I'm looking for always restaurant which can take foreigner if they want to try Osaka foods. This time I wanted to come Takoyaki restaurant. They don't cook for us so we have to cooking Takoyaki which is most famous food of Osaka. That's the good way to catch people's heart like Star Bucks did:)  We Osaka people are having a Takoyaki-pan at each family. Cooking Takoyaki is usual things for us,so want to make foreigner to have this experience:)

I seached the restaurant at Umeda. It's close to HEP building which has red Ferris Wheel at Hankyu Umeda station.

There were a lot of young people as the fashionable area in Osaka:)

We ordered nomal taste and curry taste. You should know what is a Takoyaki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Takoyaki) if you don't know. And please try to it in Osaka even if you don't like octopus:)  It was easy cooking than at home cooking. What is hard that the pan being very hot!! ...I think ,Daniel cooking it at the first time but he cooked it very well. He may has talent for it:)  We didn't eat it too much because already felt full during cooking it:) We paied only 600yen each other! Very cheap:)

We went to the Purikula(Print club?) as well,it being our habit at meetup! We chose the machine which makes our eyes big! It wasn't good for Daniel because he already had it:D Sorry Daniel,we didn't give you a time say "No":P We spent time at the cafe' after Purikula,we talked a lot but sometimes couldn't understand what we say...as we had bad pronunciation...but Daniel is so kind,he tried understand using body language:D

It was realy short time meet-up. But had very nice time with TravBuddy friends:)  Hope to see Daniel somewhere sometimes again:) Thanks!
