We plan to have a meet-up on the 24th of May as some TravBuddies are around Osaka! Frank gave us a good idea which try to wear a Japanese traditional dress kimono! I never doubt that everyone will love to do it!! So we just started to hold "Kimono de Kyoto" meet-up!

I know some of them are coming around Osaka when close to that date. At first,I've got a message from Kim (http://www.travbuddy.com/Pearl510 )  at afternoon on the 19th. She is arriving Osaka and has free time at night. So we decided to meet at Tenma which is local place of Osaka.  On the 19th,my work finished near Umeda then Kim's hotel is Momodani. I immediately comes up an idea to see her at JR Tenma St.

on loop line. This St. is easy get to from both of us side,and there is an exit also you never know how nice area it is!  This is the first time to see her though we recoganized each other soon! We went to Minoh Beer at first as my recomendition sake bar (http://www.travbuddy.com/Tachinomi-Tempra-YAMANAKA-v814994) was closed that day. You might already knows I LOVE drinking,I can follow to men's volume and I knew it much. But here is Kim who can do that! Haha,I so enjoyed her company,she follow me drinking beers;D And liked her challenge for novelty local foods!  After some times,some of my friends joined us,then went to sushi restaurant at the same area was awesome!!

Next day,we met again at evening after my work.

We supposed to go to Umeda Sky buildding if it's sunny! Unfortunatelly it was rainy...but we still hopping to stop raining when we are there! ....No,it being like storm finaly neverthless we went to climb up to the top of Sky buildding! It was my first experience run around the Sky garden to avoiding rain! Also the view in rainy was so beautiful!! This is why I even love to visit same place sometimes with travelers because I could find many differents I visited the same place (Oh yes,I'm writting about it on my profile).

I always want to bring foreigners friends to Prikula which is interesting Japanese culture. They don't know what it is till we arrival there,then almost they would love it! Kim,she definitelly loves as same as Japanese young girls loves it!  After that we went to the Takoyaki restaurant which you can cook Takoyaki by your self. This is much fun! We Osaka citizen have a Takoyaki pan at home 99%. We can make it so well,but if you try it the first time it might be difficult. Would much fun to have experience of it:) However,Kim made it well with using two sticks!

We've try to catch up my Japanese friend again at near that Takoyaki restaurant. Some friends joined again then enjoyed drinking ;)

We separated at the last train promised to see each other on the 24th Kimono de Kyoto meet-up!!
