Japan Trip '16: Osaka

Travelling to Japan has been a country to visit in my bucket list since I was a child.  I was there for two weeks with my husband and friends exploring mainly Osaka and Tokyo then a bit of Kobe, Kyoto, and Kanazawa.  Other than going there for sightseeing, we came to Japan to EAT.  Since we took a lot of photos, I'll let the photos do most of the talking!

1) During our first week in Japan, we stayed in the Jūsō area of Osaka.  There was food everywhere! Literally every turn we made, there was a restaurant, food shop, or a mini market.  The first place we ate at was an izakaya.  There were no menus (say what?), instead, we had to choose the foods we wanted that were displayed on a counter and it would be brought to us. Some of the foods we had were chicken karaagenikujaga(meat and potatoes), and a simple omelette.  The maguro (tuna) sashimi was given to us by a local as a welcoming present to Japan (how nice of him!):

2) At every department store we went to had food marketplaces…
