We are each taking it in turns to pick places to eat, and today was Narty's day. She chose Very Happy Pancakes - and what a great choice that was. The pancakes were fluffy and came with a variety of toppings - including sausage and cheese, bacon and cheddar and delicious fruit options. After breakfast, we headed to Osaka Castle for a look.
