blingy saturday

Saturday we met our family friend, D, he is here with a group and had some free time to get together.

The first place we went to was Shinsekai, I've posted about this area before and we took him up Tsutenkaku, a large tower in lower Osaka where you can see the city.

The line to get up to the observatory deck of Tsutenkaku took about 45 minutes. After checking out the city from above, we walked to Namba (about 20 minutes).

We went to a bar that D had been to in the past and wanted to re-visit on this trip...Tako Tako King.

This bar serves takoyaki, as well as okonomiyaki and other items that can be cooked on a teppan (steel plate).

That photo above is actually of a takoyaki, in the lighting of the bar, this photo turned out to look like umeboshi (preserved apricots).

Everything we tried was delicious and very reasonable.

As we were walking back from the bar there was a showroom with all these blingy Benz. These were all covered in Swarovski studs! I checked their site and apparently they do accessorizing for Mercedes'.

After shopping a bit more, we made it back to D's hotel in time for him to meet up with his group.

We did a lot of walking and had a fun day with him. We hope he had a nice time. (Thanks D!)

Ha! I enlarged the pics and almost felt like I had to grab my sunglasses or adjust the brightness on my monitor. Bling bling, ch-ching!

Those cars are fascinating Kat.

sometimes photos are hard to relay stuff, but I am glad that the brightness came through Rowena :)

my jaw was on the ground when I saw these Barbara :)

Take care you two.

My goodness, can you imagine those Benz's driving down your street....they'd be hazardous to your eyes!

Debinhawaii said...

WOW! That is some serious bling. ;-) I do love a good takoyaki too.

K and S said...

you could never park this in public, too many people would be trying to take the crystals off Kirk ;)

I think I like okonomiyaki better Debinhawaii :)

Take care you two.
