Shin-imamiya is in the southern part of Osaka, near Tennoji. There are a lot of family-owned shops and restaurants in the small alleys surrounding Tsutenkaku Tower. This particular place is also English-Speaker friendly (English signs/menus). The sushi was super fresh and delicious!
Late last year I went to visit my grandmother in Japan.
We spent the first couple of nights in Osaka to do some shopping.
Mum and I should win awards for cutest luggage. I should warn you, do not put really heavy items in Chocoholic (on the right) or Swimmer luggage, they simply do not hold the weight. the bottom wheels fall off (this is the third or fourth one I bought, I ALWAYS fall for the cute prints.) Mum's polka dot suitcase (on the left) is from a local mall in our hometown. It is extremely sturdy and practical, as it has four wheels. I ended up buying a similar one on the way home, and I'm happy with it.
Our first meal when we arrived at our hotel. I've missed family mart!
