Yamazaki Tour, Osaka

First stop for the day was some breakfast before we caught the train to head for the Yamazaki Distillery Tour and Tasting! The boys were really excited for this cause they really enjoy whisky!

Yamazaki 25 tasting! It is hard to find this now so the boys were very happy to be able to taste some! For whisky lovers, this is a must go. You get to taste very rare and expensive whiskies like Yamazaki 25 years which would cost about S$5,000 a bottle here in Singapore!

Mochi x2

The left colorful ones didn't taste so good, a little tasteless. Love the peanut ones best! Yumms!

There were a lot of seafood stalls at Kuromon so we went to the one which has fairly a lot of people but yet there were seats for us. Sorry that I didn't get the name of the stall but I trust that they are all fresh cause Japanese only sell fresh stuff!

Huge snow crab which cost us only 5,800 yen that is about S$70!

Had half of this uni, sea urchin all by myself!!
I am the least adventurous person when it comes to food. The last time I came to Japan, all I ate was salmon sashimi. But this trip, I was pushed to try stuff I would never try before! So proud of myself haha! 

For uni, I had a very bad experience and it tasted horrid. I now know it was because it is not fresh therefore the pungent taste/ smell. The fresh ones are milky and really tasty!!  

Headed back to Ebisubashi Suji shopping district for our dinner reservation! This place is really famous so apparently we had to make 1 month prior reservation! Thanks Janice! 

We were going to have our most expensive dinner in Japan! BBQ Beef and beef and a lot of beef!

Snacks from a random supermarket because it was cheaper at this supermarket omg!! I had to get a carton of 12 packets teehee! I almost wanted to walk away cause it was bulky but love offered to hold it for me. I went right to the cashier after he said that! HEHE! :D :D Snack queen on the loose haha!

Dinner was at Matsuzakagyu Yakiniku M, Hozenji Yokocho! We made reservation for the main outlet because Janice said that they do not serve the full menu at the branch just round the corner. We later walked past the shop after our dinner and it wasn't packed at all.
