Welcome to my home :) Ukiyo's Osaka/Kansai 大阪!

Hi guys, I finally decided I will upload my endless amount of pictures of Osaka and Kansai region in general. In this thread you will see Osaka (prefecture), Kyoto, Nara, Shiga, Kobe etc. Urban scenes, to climbing mountains to random things. Since this is kind of a local perspective thread I guess there will be many random pictures sometimes and a bunch of food pictures . More or less this thread will be endless I guess .

Subscribe, if you use that please

So let's start off with some skyline pictures of Osaka. Sunset!

IMG_7263 by ukiyo634, on Flickr


IMG_7231 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

And here's a random picture of a suburban house in Osaka in the fall


IMG_3687-EFFECTS by ukiyo634, on Flickr

Here's a random Osaka neighborhood (east) in the Spring


IMG_7819 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

Another random house because why not


IMG_6141 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

And Ramen, because that's what we eat


IMG_7169 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

And here's a picture of my nails because that's what we do



Kawaii yarou?

Although I'll try to spare you with such pictures

Also here is a disastrous panorama I made, it's from Osaka castle looking east. This is the only bad panorama I have, so might as well get it out of the way now lol.

IMG_0406 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

Also I will sometimes put videos like this:



Or videos from the train.

Let's start with residential urban Osaka. Going to the local Aeon to go shopping and grab lunch.


IMG_2324 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

These buildings on the right are known as "Danchi". They are government housing built during the economic boom for working class migrants into the cities. They are dirt cheap to live in


IMG_2363 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

Next to the Danchi are modern housing


IMG_2365 by ukiyo634, on Flickr


IMG_2368 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

I guess I randomly wanted to edit this picture with google for some reason


IMG_2369-EFFECTS by ukiyo634, on Flickr

Here's the mall


IMG_2370 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

Most people just ride their bicycles here


IMG_2371 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

Food court


IMG_2373 by ukiyo634, on Flickr


IMG_2372 by ukiyo634, on Flickr


IMG_2376 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

^ No I didn't eat all of that lol


IMG_2377 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

I must have done a lot of shopping because, it's night now


IMG_2379 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

Taking the monorail back home


IMG_2382 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

Local Izakaya

IMG_2383 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

There's a love hotel right next to home it's the building with the red sign


IMG_2396 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

So now let's go to Osaka city hall, which is located on Nakanoshima which is an island in the middle of a river. It's quite pretty. But first we need to walk to the station to get there

The area is pretty dense


IMG_2402 by ukiyo634, on Flickr


IMG_2408 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

This is the Keihan line. It connects Osaka and Kyoto. You will be seeing a lot of it . But in this case we are going towards central Osaka.


IMG_2410 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

In the summer you can often see people wearing yukata


IMG_2411 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

Some random pics from the train


IMG_2416 by ukiyo634, on Flickr


IMG_2420 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

I really like the Keihan stations in this area, probably among my favorite in all of Japan:

IMG_2437 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

But actually my destination was the Nakanoshima rose garden


IMG_2452 by ukiyo634, on Flickr


IMG_2457 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

Unfortunately there weren't really any roses when I went this time.

Now to get lunch


IMG_2506 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

Going back to the island


IMG_2507 by ukiyo634, on Flickr


IMG_2519 by ukiyo634, on Flickr


IMG_2508 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

My friend and I had a very yummy but probably unhealthy lunch


IMG_2509 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

That little cup was honey, which we put on the pizza. It was actually delicious.

IMG_2511 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

This is what we call "Japanese hamburg"


IMG_2512 by ukiyo634, on Flickr


IMG_2516 by ukiyo634, on Flickr

That's all for now

Nice, pics. Do people swim in this river? What its name? I liked the wooden subway station. I'm inspired to do a thread of my own city now.

I think that's a common thing. People stay in Osaka and visit Kyoto, Nara etc. Osaka is worth it just for the food. It's not called the nation's kitchen for nothing

Haha, drunk people or crazy people in Shinsaibashi will swim in them. They are not like toxic sludge or something with dead fish everywhere, but definitely do not recommend to swim in them!

Love it. Osaka is a fantastic place, though I think I would live in Kobe. The whole area is absolutely fantastic!

Pretty much every river that goes through an urban area is too dirty to swim in. Even the beautiful river that goes through Melbourne city is full of sewerage and the government doesn't recommend swimming anywhere close to the city, only outside.

I remember our Japan trip last year, we planned to visit that rose garden too but didn't make it. We basically started walking from Osaka Castle, gave up at Temmabashi station and decided to take the Keihan line to Oebashi. I was really blown away by those stations too, so cool with all the wood.

I was surprised how empty the Nakanoshima area was, but maybe because it was a Saturday I suppose.

Not many tourists know of the area I think, it's mostly just working people around or locals for the most part, compared to Shinsaibashi etc.
