Sister visit, final day 9.

As Deli and Andy were departing from Kansai airport, we spent our last day together in Osaka visiting Delaram’s high-school friend and now, my dear dear friend Yuka sensei and her adorable family. We shopped, sight-seed, sight-seed? is that a word? ate Osaka-style okonomiyaki, takoyaki (octopus balls) and kushikatsu (not pictured) and people-watched from the upstairs Starbucks lounge allĀ in Shinsaibashi, Osaka’s main shopping area and thus busiest district.

spontaneous day trip to osaka

Spent a spontaneous day in Osaka today. I ate takoyaki (octopus balls) in a strange rice-cracker burger thing which was delishhhhhhious and later, kushikatsu (deep fried skewers) of mushroom, brie cheese, squid, pumpkin, tomato and onion! Oh my goodness, I reckon if I opened up a kushikatsu restaurant in Christchurch, I’d be a billionaire. Errybody loves fried food, especially on a stick! What do you reckon?!
