It's a date I leave for Manila,but on that day time I had meet-up with a man from Australia,Ray. He is a newbie on TravBuddy,we exchanged some messages via the site. Since he arranged his schedule a little bit for me,I sure will meet Ray in Osaka. Just be sorry as I don't take time much because have to ready to abcent home foe a while left my daughter alone. However I had time to show him some places in Osaka.
I've met him at Granfront which is new big shopping center near Osaka St. I know it is too big,we had to contact to several time to recoganized each other. I found him at second floor then called his name,yes it is Ray! Our plan is to go to Sky building and Osaka castle then have some local foods.
Then we went to Osaka castle. There is an event of Samurai museum. Might be fun though seems like not real one so we skipped there then climb up to Osaka castle. I ike Osaka castle because very cosy size,not so big to explore around and they make well showing history inside of castle. We climb up by elevator then goes down with stairs seeing each floors.
It made us hungry enough...it's time for local foods and beers!! Yes,we made hungry for that of course! We've back to Namba to have Okonomiyaki,I wish they has Takoyaki also unfortunately not Takoyaki,but akashiyaki. It look like similar but quite different taste,I prefer to Takoyaki of course. Anyway,we enjoyed conversation having Okonomiyaki and beers. Since that day Ray seems like being Okonomiyaki lover!! I'm so happy made him so:) Hahaha!
It was nice to him share our local things with him. We could have more fun time if I still had time but my flight time was coming:) I never regret to come to see him even if it was short time. Thank you for contact me,Ray!
