On our way to our accommodation first to leave our luggages and rest first.

On our way to our place, we need to transfer stations and on the way to the other station we passed by this street mall where there are several restos and stalls selling different kinds of things.

Route map of Osaka. Looks complicated ay? at first yeah. but you just have to look for the train station and what line you need to get to and that will probably be fine.

Our accommodation. We booked in AirBNB. I suggest you book at AirBNB as well since they are very popular for accommodation in Japan. Very cheap and more convenient as per my experience comparing to staying at hotels. Please visit Where to stay in Fukuoka, Osaka & Tokyo, Japan for guides & tips getting accommodation

Our host jsut gave us instructions on how to get to the apartment and it’s key.

Our toilet & shower were clean and nice. However using the shower is a bit annoying for it takes several minutes for the water to heat up then it gets cold again. I talked to the host about this issue but unfortunately, it was not resolved during our stay.

After resting, I decided to go out again. My mother was pretty tired and didn’t bother to come with me.

Osaka Shinsekai is close to our accommodation. Maybe around 20min walk? It was already night time when I got there and most of the shops were already closed. but restos were still open. Time to get some foooood.
