|On the train from Tokyo to Osaka... no snow in either cities, tons in between!|
|The Tsutenkaku (通天閣) is a tower with an interesting history.|
It is not that tall by today's standards, but it used to be the tallest in Orient at some point in time.
The surrounding neighborhood Shin-Sekai is a pedestrian's paradise, tons of restaurants and shops.
|See description above!|
|Almost looks like the Eiffel Tower, doesn't it? That was the whole point.|
|A view from the top of Tsutenkaku.|
|Too bad this street was closed because it looked awesome.|
We may have been there on the first of January, however...
|The Osaka Mode Gakuen (大阪モード学園) is really impressive in person.|
Half of the building is this big sphere sticking out, the other is a Fashion school.
|I have a thing for skyscrapers, so does Osaka! Match made in heaven...|
|This Engrish sounds dangerous!|
|More downtown skyscrapers. This thing on the right was a monument to perpetual motion...|
|I LOVE LAMP|
|This building is the Umeda Hankyu Building (梅田阪急ビル). Looks badass!!!|
|Bye-bye downtown Osaka.|
|This Engrish sounds delicious! (zoom in!!!)|
|Osaka Den Den Town (でんでんタウン) is quite large, but we don't have pics from the awesome backstreets...|
The Melon Books store here had huge MOSAIC.WAV and ave;new sections.
|Nankai Nanba Station (南海なんば駅). They do train stations RIGHT.|
|Umeda Sky Building (梅田スカイビル) elevator to HEAVEN...|
|View from Umeda Sky Building (梅田スカイビル)|
|The Umeda building has some of the craziest architecture in the world. BEAUTY!|
|Some of you guys run into these vans quite often... maybe they wake you up in the morning?|
|Hilarious Pet Salon with Internet cat meme on the shutters.|
|Amerikamura (アメリカ村) has some... interesting lamps.|
|This basement in Amerikamura is normally full of punk record stores and bars but... they were all closed :(|
At least MANDARAKE GRANDCHAOS was open and they were blasting some ULTRA-PRISM. Denpa: 1, Punk: 0!
