On Day 7 in Osaka, we headed straight to eat one of the best bowls of ramen I’ve ever had in my life, and after that we ate okonomiykai.
1:20 Ramen Yashichi (らーめん弥七) – Just down the street from where we were staying, there was a ramen restaurant that Dwight took us to, called Ramen Yashichi (らーめん弥七). It’s a very famous ramen restaurant in Osaka, and from the moment they open their doors for lunch (and before), there’s typically a line waiting outside. We waited in line in anticipation, and finally got in and ordered. It turned out to be probably the finest bowl of ramen I’ve had, really incredibly good.
Ramen Yashichi (らーめん弥七)

How to get there: Ramen Yashichi (らーめん弥七) is very close to Nakatsu Subway station. Once you exit the station, walk east, and the ramen restaurant is just before you reach the main highway.
6:03 Okonomiyaki Kiji (きじ) – After an incredible bowl of ramen, we headed over to the Umeda Sky Building where we went to a restaurant called Okonomiyaki Kiji (きじ) to eat one of Osaka’s most famous foods – okonomiyaki.
Okonomiyaki still isn’t my favorite food, but this was pretty good, and what I really liked about the restaurant is that the chef was extremely nice and friendly. A great place to try okonomiyaki when you’re in Osaka.
