Osaka - still overwhelming busy city, especially to me who is from very rural small town and currently live in Kyoto.
Me and my friend decided to have "small alley day" finding secret spots and exploring deep Osaka the other day.
Started from this amazing hipster coffee shop called Brooklyn roasting company.

Coffee with river view. The best morning. And their soy latte is beyond amazing.
After we had lunch at a Thai restaurant, we visited a small photo gallery which had a nice exhibition by 5 old gentlemen.
And we decided to go for a walk to get to "oasis of the city" and found this super old school game place right in front of Nankai Namba station.
And we got to Namba parks which has nice garden space outside, had coffee again at chilly sunset time.

Osaka is actually quite nice for city walk, avoiding all the crowds. It can be quite challenging to find your favorite spots as it's big, but still very charming and energetic and fun!
