Hello, I’m Misano. I would like to share my experience of several singular & superb ramen restaurants I visited during my recent stay in Osaka and Kyoto.
Osaka’s “Hirakata Park” is a hugely popular theme park with over 40 different attractions. Go have a blast at their summertime pool, “The Boon”!
It also makes for a great spot for photos to upload onto social media!
When in Osaka, I want to eat the most delicious yakitori, or grilled chicken served on skewers! If that sounds like you, I can highly recommend Morita. At this restaurant, savor the freshest free-range local chicken that has been deftly handled with the utmost care by the owner, who has the rare distinction of having a license to handle fowl as food.
“Houchou Ippon” is a tucked-away Japanese restaurant in Kitahama, a business district of Osaka.
They offer authentic Japanese foods made with seasonal ingredients, so it’s often used for business meals and the like.
I heard that you can get a great lunch for a reasonable price here, so I went in for a visit.
“Kashiya” is a popular ramen restaurant in Osaka.
While it’s a small shop with a mere 8 counter seats, it’s such a popular restaurant that it’s even been featured on TV.
For the First Time in 48 Years, the Inside of the Tower of the Sun is Open! Osaka Expo '70 Commemorative ParkRead Later
Japan's World's Fair (the Osaka Expo) was held in 1970 as the first event of its kind in Asia. In one part of the Theme Pavilion stands the 70-meter-high Tower of the Sun, designed by artist Taro Okamoto.
After undergoing extensive renovations, the interior of this tower, which had been closed following the Expo, is open to the public for the first time in 48 years!
In Japanese cuisine, the fried breaded pork cutlet called Tonkatsu is famous. Now a beef version of this dish, known as Gyukatsu, has been gaining attention, and a lot of eateries specializing in beef cutlets have appeared recently.
In Osaka's Dojima Chikagai (an underground shopping arcade), there's Kyoto Katsugyu, a restaurant that's always full of customers. I went there to have lunch!
