Osaka Prefecture, Japan

Osaka is the capital of Osaka prefecture. Osaka is a short ride via the bullet train from Kyoto but gives quite a different impression. It is well known for excellent food as well as one of the hosts to the sumo bouts.

I took a quick side trip to Osaka from Kyoto hoping to get tickets for sumo. Since they were sold out, I walked to this observatory from the station. I took an elevator to the "floating escalators" which lead to and from the actual observatory at the top.

Osaka's Gang Snowman is suppose to have some of the wildest love hotel rooms in Japan. The above room was complete with a prison, jet tub, akasuri massage station, private sauna, pummel horse, bondage coffee table with neck restrains, and TVs in the bedroom, bathroom and tub area!

The best part of this hotel is that paying customers are allowed to use the 'Fantastic Garage' on the roof complete with a 70's Cadillac hot tub! There is also a 'multi-position' chair on the roof with wrist and ankle restrains.
