Sushi and such

I love me some sushi. And there's so much of it here in Japan. And Osaka is known as Japans kitchen. Boy did I pick the right city to live in!! SO dinner plans were made and Rich, Rachel, Ikuyo and I decided to head out and get us some raw fish!! On our way to dinner, we ran across some interesting Osaka sights.


Rachel and Ikuyo on the escalator.


Ikuyo is really tiny. In this pic you can see Rachel on the left - who has stated that she herself is not the tallest person, me in the white coat and Ikuyo on the right. Tiny!


A Takoyaki stand. These ones are actually made with a kind of "taco" shell which is NOT usual. Tako in Japanese means octopus. So coming with a shell is....uh....unusual. They are delicious regardless and an Osaka specialty. I love the towel headgear.


This is the big crab on Dottonbori street. It moves. Its pretty cool. A real landmark downtown.

Well that was our Sushi dinner adventure. No pictures of the sushi. We were concentrating on the wolfing down of the food. Maybe next time :D Who am I kidding? When do we ever wait to eat?!!
