And I must report, this Leisure Class is loving Osaka. Big bustling city with lots of noise and neon lights and very little to see in the "tourist" department. I'm staying in Namba, the "hip" and social part of the city known for its nightlife and shopping.
Dare I forget eating! Had a scrumptious lunch in one of the myriad restaurants along Shinsaibashi-suji (the pedestrian street mall). Had a heaping bowl of rice and seaweed covered with giant fried sea scallops, udon soup with green onions and fresh seaweed, and pickled cabbage. Washed it all down with superb chilled tea. SO good. Sooooo good. My Leisure Class tummy is happy indeed.
Plan to stroll around in a bit around dusk to capture the area as night falls and the gazillion lights make everything brilliant and cheery and fun. Couldn't be happier with my downtime in Osaka.
