I had a list of things I wanted to do in Japan and one of those was play at an arcade center! I love arcades and I am so bummed that they aren’t as popular over here in the States, in fact, the ones in malls seem to get closed down. Anyways. So we played in the Sega arcade in Osaka. Man, those UFO watched games are SO HARD but SO ADDICTING. I didn’t win anything and the amount of money I used is quite disgusting…but I was just SO DETERMINED!!! BAH! Sarah on the other hand did win something, it took her quite a long time, but she did it! It wasn’t from the UFO catcher machine, it was from a different kind that I don’t know the name of, but it looked complicated as well.
I loved the marketing/advertising on the buildings around Shinsaibashi. They all pop out, move, light up, and just wow. It’s all so cool!! I wish I could have eaten at every restaurant we passed by! It was just so amazing! Looking back on all these pictures makes me want to go back right now!
Another really awesome thing to note is the food displays! It’s all fake food, but it looks so tasty! They sold some of it at gift shops and I was tempted to buy some, although I didn’t. I mean, look at it! So cool!! It also made it easy as someone who doesn’t speak/read the language to see what the food items on the menu are going to look like!
I’ll be sharing more adventures from my time in Osaka soon! Stay tuned!
