We had a wonderful night with Tasuhiro, Hiro-san. Starting with his punctuality, it led to an engaging night exploring Osaka and its vibrant food district. As first-time visitors to Osaka, he was a great asset, escorting us from Kyoto and immersing us in the local cultural rituals and adding his knowledge of the area. He was charming company and when we return one day, we would like to see him again and head out on another urban adventure together.
Hi Christopher-san & Stephanie-san, Thank you so much for your favorable comment. I am really encouraged. I truly appreciate your kindness treating me to a wonderful "yakiniku" dinner. You originally requested dropping in at a "takoyaki" stall, which is widely popular among Osaka citizens. I actually found one on our way back to Namba station, but didn`t suggest we spend time there, since I thought your stomach might be full. We walked on the bridge across a river flowing between the rows of plush buildings. It`s Dotombori-river, where reckless and enthusiastic baseball fans often jump into when their favorite team wins a championship. I wish I can take you to more places the next time you visit this city of "kui-daore", meaning you can eat until you fall down onto the ground, a comical nickname for Osaka. Many thanks again and "Ookini". Regards, Tatsuhiro
