1st sight-seeing tour on 8 Oct 2012 is to the Shitennoji (temple) 四天王寺 near the Tennoji Station 天王寺駅, with P-san, C-san & G-san.
The number of candid shots along the way these 3 ladies took …. *shake head*
Along the way got side tracked by many shops:
Soba shop – YES! IT IS POSSIBLE TO HAVE A MEAL BELOW ¥300 !!!
Tennoji-shopoing street – yahhhh, spent money again la …
Entrance to Shitennoji 四天王寺, inner court is ¥300, museum is ¥500, garden is free but closed
Old book (& CD, maps, stationery, etc) fair being held in the temple grounds, free entry to all
Lamps (electric) in memory of those have have left this world ….
The gang split up after this ‘cos I was busy taking photos of buildings while they were busy taking photos of themselves 🙂
More morbid stuff, didn’t know this area has so many small temples/shrines that are actually cemetaries …
1 of the many temple cemeteries along the Matsuyamachi-suji (street) 松屋町筋
And 1 cemetery right smack in the middle of a housing area …
Let’s not forget the funeral parlour, nice trees in front 🙂
No trees? Paint your own. And while you are at it, might as well paint some birds in (cafe)
The best way to “persuade” folks not to park their bicycles is to charge them … wait a minute, what are those 2 in the back OUTSIDE the railing … ?!?
No, no, no, it is just pure coincidence that I happen to shoot the wine & beer aisle of the supermarket, bwahahaha
BEFORE: Dinner @ Machikado-ya 街かど屋 ¥650
AFTER: … don’t you just love “professional” food?
Not filling? More plain rice, pls help yourself …
Nope, it won’t work back home, shop will go bankrupt from free loaders *nods head*
Those who know me well ….
Ya ya ya, I hate tofu, ok? I hate tofu, I hate tofu, I hate tofu, stop nagging already … ===≡≡≡｡ﾟ┌(ﾟ´Д`ﾟ)┘ﾟ｡
A parlour of another kind …
America Mura (village)
and …. **totally speechless**
Then in spite of my epic culinary failures, I still decided to splurge on a new bento box & flask to ensure my life in Osaka is made as difficult as possible:
bento-box @ ¥880 from Life ライフ supermarket, last piece, fufufufu
bento & flask (¥798) and the houji tea (no idea what it is at all, it smelled nice though …) that I bought earlier from the tennoji shop ¥600
of course saw similar configuration bento boxes at those ¥300 (315 incl. sales tax) shop, but gosh, the design & colours …. *facepalm*
Another culinary disaster coming your way soon … don’t go away 🙂
