Eleventh Day of My Japan Trip 2013

Okay, I decided to explore every last place I could check in one day. First, I decided to ride the Shinkansen to Yokohama to check out Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum.

After I finished checking the museum and buying some souvenirs, I took the Shinkansen again to get to Osaka.

I took the local train to Namba to find an okonomiyaki restaurant named Fukutarou.

When I got there, so many people were waiting there for hours. When there are so many Japanese people lined up, there is very good food there.

When I finally got called in, I made my order and wondered whether I will be able to catch the Shinkansen back to Tokyo in time.

When I finished my meal and paid my bill, I immediately took the local train to Shin-Osaka Station. When I got there, I noticed the only Shinkansens left at the time I was there were Nozomi and Kodama. Kodama is the slowest since it stops at every station. So, I decided to buy a ticket for Nozomi train to get to Tokyo faster. Since my JR Pass doesn’t cover Nozomi and Mizuho trains, I had to pay the full fare of 13,240 yen.

There are so many things in Japan I wanted to check out badly. Unfortunately, my plane leaves on Friday in the afternoon. So, this will be my last Japan trip post until I write another. Until then, later.
