Osaka: you can never take enough selfies

Crowded, fun, loud, all of these words fit Osaka.  It has all the hustle and bustle of Tokyo with a little more spunk.  Osaka even has its own dialect, but I couldn’t tell you what makes the dialect different from standard Japanese.

I only stayed in Osaka for a day and a half and the heat was getting to me so I only went out at night.

The most well-known street is Dotonbori.  You can find Osaka specialties like takoyaki (fried octopus cooked in balls of dough), okonomiyaki (savory pancake with any ingredient you can think of), and a billion people taking selfies.

The next night, I was lucky enough to be invited to a hostel worker’s house to watch fireworks.  We, the random assortment of hostel guests, sat out on the roof and feasted on snacks from the grocery store as we watched the fireworks.  It was a lovely end to my Osaka stay.

    Osaka is fantastic! It is a great place to live and experience especially with all of the great food close by. The people are also fairly friendly or at least the ones I have met are.
