Osaka, last full day

I never got the chance to post pics from our final day in Osaka! It was the coldest day with temperatures in the 50s, but we made it to Osaka Castle, a Buddhist temple and Dotonbori.

We met the kindest people, saw beautiful landmarks, and of course ate our way through the country! Japan will stay dear to my heart for the rest of my life, and we are already dreaming of our next trip… 

I love the way they advertise in Japan! The train was covered in pictures of this J-pop group


Osaka Castle






Definitely worth 300 yen (about $3)



A gorgeous landmark representing the unification of Japan in the 16th Century


Osaka Castle Park


bread, cheese and bacon pastry… mmm


the “love hotel” district! reminded me of Vegas in a way


Okonomiyaki – the Japanese pancake


very good lunch spot with a kind owner who spoke English


Shitennoji temple


We got to walk up inside, but no photos were allowed





Shinsaibashi shopping district


Iconic Dotonbori Glico man

Takoyaki (fried octopus)! We were told this is a must-try in Dotonbori

pretty tasty

We ended our final night with wine and ice cream back at the apartment

a savory end to our trip
