Woke up at 5AM again and checked the social media. I found out through his instagram post Rupert got up in the middle of the night and explored Osaka by himself in the middle of the night. He even went to dinner alone. Once he woke up him and I would explore a rainy Osaka and failed in our search for sandwich bags (water resistant) but we returned made our way to breakfast. Before we did however we stopped a grocery store in the station and night snacks. I didn’t buy any snacks because the prices seemed high and I didn’t want to carry the snacks from Monday to Thursday. We ate breakfast at a place inside the station. I had pancakes and ham.
After breakfast we took the train to a temple
and attempted to go to the zoo not knowing it would be closed.Although we were disappointed we decided we would go to the aquarium instead. We stopped for ramen near by.
After eating we headed to the aquarium. Ironically this aquarium was the same one that I had been to on March 11, 2011 the day of the tsunami. I have a video of me there on that exact day.
The ferris wheel was right outside of the aquarium.
After the Ferris wheel we made our way back toward the hotel. We walked for what felt like miles until we found a currency exchange inside a store that looked like best buy, rei, Walmart and toys r us wrapped in one. After finally finding this place we had to find our way back to the hotel… We walked… And walked… And walked….. My legs felt as if they would give up on me. We finally made it to the hotel where I showered and lye down for a few minutes before it was time to go get sushi. We were recommended a place for sushi but after another long walk we gave up and ended up at a hole in the wall sushi place. The options were not so great and to expensive to fully enjoy. We would return to the hotel and crash.
