I saw a poster about Oktoberfest in Tennoji at subway. It seems like holding every year. Sound nice! The grounds is at Tennoji Park. We were planning to go to the flea market near Tennoji at 21st as the fleamarket holding every 21st in month. So it will be good going to Okcoberfest after fleamarket.
In the morning,we went to the flea market in Shitennoji temple. There are 300 shops around. We try to arrival there early morning as we won't miss any nice stuffs. Some people are already there buying something...it being busy faster. Michael and I were checkking all shops there I think. But still could find new shops when we walking around. After explore there for 4 hours we got tiring and hungry.
Just found a Spanish Bal near the station. They only had a lunch menu. No choise we ordered them and beers too. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff! I want to back there at night time!
The Oktoberfest place is the next station. We were wearing the beer pub T-shirts from Utah. Michael's friend is running a Beer pub at Salt Lake City in Utah. A symbol of Utah is Beehive, and his bar is Beerhive. The T-shirts is very unique,I love his humor sense. Especially as you know Utah is a base of Mormonism and they don't drink alcohol,nevertheless Beerhive...nice joking! Anyway,we wanted take a picture wearing T-shirts and wanted to say thank to his friend on facebook.
The first day,(Yes,finaly we went to there next day too) It wasn't so crowded as we sterted drinking there from 3pm around. The system is good for eco,we charge for a glass 1,000yen at first then we can order beers at any booth. At last we have to back the glass to the first booth we bought a beer. Then they will return money 1,000yen us. There are so many kind of beers from Europ. We enjoyed a few kind of them but unfortunatelly the price was so expensive!! 1,300yen-2,000yen/a glass also it 500ml-720ml. So I prefer less amount and around 500yen-800yen will be good then we can taste some more though... But we had so much fun that day! We decided to come here next day,then Ayaka joined us as we were planning to go to Korean BB restaurant together! It's Saturday evening,more people are there. We could find the chair for three yet. The young guys looks drinking much as well at next to our table,we did a "Prost!!" together....ah,too much drank!!
