Fantasmo Downtown Osaka

In Japan,
To travel between Tokyo and Osaka,
many people use the Shinkansen instead of airlines
because the Shinkansen is usually cheaper and easier to ride.

However, my daughter & I
took an hour plane bound from Tokyo to Osaka,
for two-day and one-night busy trip
around Osaka, Kobe, Himeji Castle.

We looked out the window of the plane,
Mt.Fuji was covered with snow.

Tokyo and Osaka have
different cultures and viewpoints.
It's a sweeping generalization that
Tokyo placed an importance on the spirit of Bushido,

But, Osaka placed it on the commercial action.

We walked around downtown Osaka at night.

We enjoyed popular dishes in Osaka
Okonomiyaki and Takoyaki.

The restaurant's advertising mascot called Cui-daor Taro is a
famous tourist attraction in Dotombori.

Many excited fans jumped into the Dotonbori River in Osaka
when the Hanshin Tigers won the Japan Series in 1985.

We caught the subway to Mystery Zone in Osaka
Shinsekai , Tutenkaku.

Biriken is
"The God of Things As They Ought to Be"
The visitors place a coin in his donation box and
rub the soles of his well-worn feet
to make their wishes come true.

Downtown Osaka is like a big box full of toys
"Things As They Ought to Be"
