carnival market and the shrine with the big frog and the tori gates
after a bit,i walked to dotombori for some night photography
shanks pony! all day! first I discovered a small area of run down themed hotels,near Tennoji zoo.Like the hotel Daigo with a castle replica perched on top of it.then i found a really nice peacefull shrine with lots of tori gates(horikoshi jinja).then i stumbled across a really large temple(isshinji)There was a large crowd there and a lot of chanting inside.On i continued to Den Den town, Osaka's Otaku quarter with store after store of electrical goods and anime stores and anime figurine stores and anime and anime figurine stores and maid cafe's and disposal stores and second hand electrical goods,cd. and anime stores and i wound my way over to Namba Parks which was impressive if you like that kind of thing.I next went into the Nankai Namba station to get a Nankai through pass and to cut a long story short -That place is an endless labarynth of low ceilinged,white tiled shopping arcade the size of a small suburb.Very scary !
