B-Sides: Osaka & (kind of) Nara

by Aug 23, 20170 comments

Today’s serving of images features some goodies from around the Kansai area.

As Mary and I were coming home one evening from something, somewhere, we found ourselves on the Keihan Main line, which we don’t often ride. The waterfront view from the train looked especially inviting so we got out on a whim and took a stroll around, crossing the bridge over Nakanoshima Park, just in time to see the fountain turn on at the top of the hour.

Spotted this shockingly dusty signage for a doctor’s clinic while strolling through a shotengai (shopping street) in Nara.

As you can see, it was on a well-travelled street. I can’t fathom how this has been in this state for so long. This concludes our coverage of Nara in today’s post. Bet you were expecting some beautiful nature and historic sites, eh? Suckerrrs.

Back in Osaka in some random department store, I came across these awesome little models of town life. My favorite was easily the ramen stand!

A colleague of Mary’s had us over for dinner. The view was…substantial.

Nice, large graffiti piece in Uehonmachi.

And we’ll leave you here back where we started, looking back at the tip of Nakanoshima Park. Short & Sweet today.
