Japan Osaka Shinsaibashi Den Den Town

15 March 2014

Another 4 hours walking

I set out aiming to walk from Shin Osaka to the Tenjinbashisuji covered walkway, as my mother challenged me to find it.
It only took about 30 minutes to get there, including walking over the bridge that crosses the river. Not much of a challenge.
This covered shopping street is indeed longer than the other one, but it is a ghost town. Even on a Saturday night.
Once I had my dinner, see below, I then decided to just keep walking...and walking. Eventually I got back to Namba, and kept walking. Did a quick lap of Den Den Town which was mostly shut other than anime and porn stores.
I wanted to see old second hand electronics and such, but they seem to shut early.

I did manage to see inside a place that had set a new record for Japan. It was a maid cafe, with puppys and cats, full of people doing karaoke whilst playing video games.
Another highlight was seeing a Japanese girl wearing a t-shirt that just said in block letters 'I GOT BIG COCK'. Try as I might I couldnt photograph her.

It was much warmer tonight, so I took a lot more photos, probably too many, I should edit more, but I am tired and cant be bothered with selectivity. Enjoy overload.

I was still hungry cause my pizza had no cheese. No bother, these green tea chocolate coated cashews were great.
Iron chef mode on: The natural crunchy saltyness of the cashew combines with the creaminess of the chocolate, infused with a bitter green tea flavour to delicately balance the pallete and allow for a pleasing experience not to be missed.
