Osaka Strut

Don and I went to Osaka and took a LOT of pictures.

The Namba Hatch auditorium and radio tower.

The building above is surrounded by a surprisingly romantic boardwalk. Couples were nuzzling everywhere.

I know, vending machines in Japan, big deal. But THIS is a MINI SHOP.

Giant eyeglass frames. Yeah, I am a sucker for corporate sculpture.

Don stole a quick nap in the Shinsaibashi First Kitchen.

We went searching for art, and found some, though not the art we were looking for. Rubbernecked through Shinsaibashi and finished the evening in Amemura (America town), chatting with the Dutch bartender. He's been in Japan for two years, just like us, and he reports that "Japan is crazy." "I feel like I've been picked up by a UFO," he said. I asked whether he lived in Shinsaibashi; my suspicions proved correct.

I'll be posting more photos tonight, so stay tuned.
