The views from the tower were pretty good, as I always love seeing cities from above. The zoo, well, was completely lacking. Animals in tiny cages and poor conditions repulsed me, and I left quickly.
Getting lost to the temple was not so fun, and after seeing dozens of temples in Japan, I lost my feeling for seeing anymore. Catching another train, I headed up to the rebuilt Osaka castle for a brief tour of the inner museum.
The setup for osaka castle was much like Nagoya castle where the inside of the structure after rebuilding was made into a museum complete with aircon and an elevator. While the sites were decent it was nothing new to me.
Originally planning on going to the floating botanical gardens for sunset, the onset of clouds turned me away and I spent the rest of the evening at the hostel and the doutonbori district with more cheap takoyaki!
