My first stop was the Osaka Aquarium.
They were initially quite protective. No flash, Take photos only of your food, not the people. However, I snuck in this shot below of how the place looks. I was the first one there, but the place was filled when I left. Actually, there are two floors of eleven seats each, and I'm not sure how upstairs was doing.
If I explained the 12 courses I had, this posting would go on forever. So, let me me detail just one course of seven sushis:
- ocellated octopus dill's flavor jelly
- cherry blossom's leaf sushi of white bait
- jelly fish and Yacon sesame vinegar
- Japanese Tiger Shrimp and Japanese pepper
- thistle and sea urchin sauce
- chinese yam with plum and honey such
- bracken lily bulb
The typos are theirs. If you count less than seven, that is because I ate two before realized I had not take a photo of this plate. I've never had any of these sushi before. Each was exquisite. Here are the rest in pictures:
With a large bottle of beer and a small flask of hot sake, the price was around $200. I would say it was well worth the cost.
On the way back to my room I stopped by Don Quixote just because we have one in Hawaii, which is much larger. I bought a box of bubbling bath salts.
Across the street is the Cross Hotel.
Tomorrow, back to Tokyo, then, after one night there, on to Hokkaido.
