Osaka Gallery / by Tyler Wood

I spent a weekend in Osaka on a whim. Osaka is a large city that feels very small and walkable. I arrived at night so I decided to walk around and see what I could find. I was on the hunt for some good ramen, but who could pass up a place called "Super Exciting Amusement World"?

The famous sign

Getting hungry, so I followed the smell of hot soup.

I found this guy - and ramen.

And giant gyoza

Tennoji Park

A small shrine on the walk from the subway to Tennoji Park

I managed to take a wrong turn and get myself onto a walkway that had a fence that went through Tennoji Park, but I couldn't get off the walkway. I walked past the park and over the zoo to Sinsekai, so I decided to investigate and find some food.

But who can pass up such characters?
