Arrived in Japan

View Coronavirus 2020 on baixing's travel map.

We arrived in the morning at Osaka. I followed the Norwegian couple through customs and we took the subway into town together, stopping at a 7-11 for cash first. I found my hostel (Roots) quite easily and slept most of the day in my bed, I was exhausted and still sick as a dog. For dinner, I went to the top restaurant on TripAdvisor, which was sukiyaki. I didn't know I had to cook it myself, but it was pretty good, even if I burned it a little bit.

I had a lot more energy in the morning, I walked to Osaka castle, which had quite an exhibit on the warlord who had built it, Toyotomi Hideyoshi in the late 1500s.

I spent a good chunk of time at the Osaka museum.


Then I found myself at Okonomiyaki Chitose, which had a kind of long lineup. I waited about 40 minutes for my large omelet type pancake thing, which was plopped on a hot steel plate embedded in the table in front of me. I had to eat it with chopsticks and a kind of putty knife. I sat with a nice couple from Singapore and then walked all the way home again and fell asleep immediately.
