In Osaka now,using the hotel internet which keeps going Japanese. Been sightseeing and had the area speciality food - which is crumbed and fried food on sticks.  Hell yeah!

Lots of eating places that I thought would get more fun later in the night so I went to karaoke to kill time and, when I was done, half of them were shut! The karaoke place was like a palace though - I even had a stage in my room.

This might sound weird but Osaka people seem to be shorter than in Tokyo. 

Hotel is okay.  It was around $20 a night so run down but clean. 
Travelling soon? Make sure you check out my recommendations, all places I've personally stayed and would book again.
