Dinner and Umeda Sky Building

Asia, Japan

After a few hours wandering around the aquarium we were famished.

Tucked away in the bay area of Osaka are a cluster of traditional Japanese restaurants that we explored.

In Japan, restaurants display models of the meals they serve. Quite odd, but really helpful.

We had to stop and try real Ramen.

Japan is known for having weird and wonderful Kit Kat flavours. I tried the green tea and red bean bites. They were really unusual but not bad.

Quite full, we headed of to the Umeda Sky Building.

The Umeda Sky Building is the 8th tallest building in Osaka. It consists of two 40 story towers that are connected at their uppermost stories. This astonishing building has a floating garden on the rooftop observatory.

After a long ride up in the lift as well as a few escalators I reached the observatory deck.
