Osaka Koi no Uta

The Kansai trip continued…jacques
After a short night in a capsule hotel In America-mura we kick-started our Osaka (s)troll day. We basically hoofed it around the famous parts of the town. Being the (forced by checkout) early birds, Jacqueline and I decided to take a stroll to see what we could see… it was a rather long trek that took us from the top of Shinsaibashi, Over Dotonbori, to the bottom on Namba… and then all the way back :p

We didn’t buy anything, we didn’t really do anything. Just looked at stuff. It was good.Gibson
Take and Keiko joined us after they had gotten up :p lazy buggers… We then did it all again! No shit we basically walked everywhere again. No shits… I walked more than I had in a long time that day.
This time however due to the fact that our capsule accommodation was un-available that night we had a bit of a goal. to find somewhere to sleep and stash our stuff before we went out to the club.

The trip took us through the side alleys and backstreets of Namba and the surrounding area up a hill with some of the most amazing and bizarre (and expensive) love hotels I have ever seen!
make love not war Tinky Winky indeed
lezzers apparently so

Without finding any accommodation to our satisfaction we had okonomiyaki for dinner again and chilled out before finding another cheap ass love hotel in the cheaper district down the hill from the other place. That night was spent at a club called Giraffe where I got to see how Osaka likes to party… and Jesus H Motorboating Christ does Osaka know how to party. Yeah its no Jozi debauchery but unlike Tokyo where peeps got to clubs to be seen, In Osaka they are actually there to have a good time! I can’t wait to dig up MY people down there. If the trendy group are any yardstick, those Osakans who party to actual music (as opposed to that stammering, stuttering down syndrome hip hop crap) will be batshit insane.

ASS-I mean Takoyaki Ramen
Not that I actually care about octopus balls but I took the picture of the sign for those of you who do… really… ;)
