That racer in the City

I consider the third generation of Civic the real father of tuning for Honda. From early 80’s this car has been used in whole country for racing inside and inside the tracks.

Osaka taste

IMG_1930 copia

The people in Osaka look more busy than in the rest of the Kansai area. That should be normal, as Osaka is the more modern and futuristic city of the area. Being Kyoto a mix of a big city and all the classic japanese taste and very peaceful Nara.

Ebisu Bashi Suji is with any doubt the busy street in the city of Osaka, there are hundred of shops for everything you need.

This is a collection of photos I took yesterday while walking around my area. Kansai is a very interesting region talking about cars and also talking about Japanese history. I have visited some garages around as Navic or Car Care Assist which will be the next post.

Is very common to find lightly tuned cars, I think almos 20% of cars equip exhaust and coilovers and that means that you never can stop watching around for new spots. Nights are very interesting and I cannot wait until next friday to get to entrance of the Meishin Express. I expect some cars going to Osaka to have fun.

Any drinks ?

One of the things that you may remember when thinking in Japan are probably the vending machines.

IMG_4006

Vending machines are everywhere. They’re in subway stations, parking lots, buildings, civic centers, and especially on the streets. There are hundreds of them selling all kind of stuff. Hot or cold drinks, water, coke, tea, beers …

The variety of drinks you can taste is unimaginable, but I decided to take some pictures of some drinks you can find walking cities. Also noticeable is the possibility to buy tobacco in the streets if you have special card to ID yourself.

Here is just an small sample of drinks.

Quickest view at Osaka you have ever seen

Probably not. In today’s post I will try to summarize Osaka in less than twenty photos. To do this I have avoided some of the most typical places such as Osaka Castle, and perhaps I pay little more attention to other details that you can also find if you visit the city and spend your time walking freely without any determined destination. Another possibility is to fall asleep, you and your pet and wait for better moment.

Seen in Osaka

IMG_5429 copia

It was quite interesting walking through the streets of Osaka, you can leave a busy and crowded street and suddenly find another quiet street with many luxury dealers together. We’ve talked in some other post about that, in Japan everything is practically possible and the fact is that you can find a Ferrari Dealer in front of a small Temple.
