Day 10, Osaka Castle, Osaka Tennoji Temple, Tsutenkaku Tower, Hozenji Yokocho Alley and Hozenji Temple.
First destination for the second day using the amazing pass was Osaka Castle (free entrance, included in the pass). This is one of the famous tourist spot of all time. If you want to get a nice picture of the castle, make sure to be there early!
Beautiful Osaka Castle! Nice to spend about 2-3 hours walking around the castle.
Selfie after the end of castle tour!
Long walking distance towards the train station to travel to Tennoji district..
Lunch at Shabusai Tennoji @ Mio Tennoji Mall for sukiyaki..
Very nice soup base for sukiyaki.. For the small meat eater, you can go for the set meal (limited slices of meat) but for the big meat eater, you can go for the buffet.
Osaka Tennoji Zoo, interesting place to find some animals which were not in Malaysia. Anyway, the entrance fee was included in the amazing pass as well! The zoo closed at 5pm, so leaving the zoo at the closing time would be just in time for sunset at Tsutenkaku Tower.
Heading to Tsutenkaku Tower! One of the oldest standing tower in Osaka..
Souvenir shop at the basement of the tower..
Sunset time! Indoor view from the top floor of the tower..
Well lighted up Tsutenkaku Tower!
Kushikatsu Damaru (for kushikatsu, deep fried skewered meat and vege) for dinner... There were many branch around the area and Namba! I guess this is one of the famous restaurant must be in the list!
Some internal organs as side dish!
Traveled back to Namba for Hozenji Yokocho Alley, Hozenji Temple, last minute shopping at Don Quijote and Daiso, and supper at Ichiran.
Hozenji Yokocho Alley..
Ichiran for Tonkotsu ramen (counter table ramen)...
Happy to get something which was less salty! =)
