For the evening I wakled around the Doutonbori district of Osaka which is about a 15 minute walk from the hostel (one of the few plus points) and saw some of Osakas famous advertising sites and ate their staple food TAKOYAKI! At a scant 350 yen for six, it was definitely my cheapest time having the treat.
I ended up finding a yogurt place that happened to be a chain out of the USA. Not having it at my town, it reminded me a lot of a local chain in Pittsburgh that we frequent a lot, and I spent an awful lot of money there (as it was something like $0.66/ounce). Now I know where our local company got their idea from. But it was delicious, down to the taro ice cream and mochi on top.
Passing out from exhaustion, the day ended.
