Kansai Day 8, 21 Dec 07 - Osaka

We had barely digestd the previous night's dinner; it was time for breakfast again!

Yet another big breakfast, which we couldn't finish most of the time.
Breakfast was served in a dinner room. Here we were, dressed in yukata provided by the ryokan.

After breakfast, we lazed around for a bit before checking out. Decided to visit the bamboo forest located 30 minutes from the ryokan before heading back to central Kyoto, then back to Osaka.

The serenity of the bamboo forest.Soon, we made our way to central Kyoto and fetched our luggage that was left at Kamogawa-kan (because we bought quite a lot of stuff over the past few days). With our bags of souvenirs, we took the Keihan line from Keihan Sanjio Station to Yodoyabashi Station Osaka, then transfered to Midosuji Line to Shinsaibashi Station. Finally, we were back in Dotonbori!
There was some time before we could check in, so we popped by Dotonbori Street for some snacks :p What else but the Osaka Takoyaki and Okonomiyaki? These two stores were the more popular stores in Dotonbori and always had long queues.
Played more "UFO" catchers before heading towards Dotonori Hotel for check-in.
Stayed at Dotonbori Hotel again as we had conveniently left our main luggage bags at the hotel before we went to Kobe and Kyoto. The room for the next 3 nights was a double-room.
As we were tired of eating out, we strolled to Namba City where there was a basement food hall and packed some food back to the hotel for dinner. On our way, we saw a movie theatre and decided to buy tickets for "National Treasure 2" at 9.25pm. So after dinner, rested a while then went to the movie theatre. The seats were spacious and comfy, I say better than the ones in Singapore.
