Osaka is often called "the city of food." We can enjoy tasty menu items for reasonable prices out there. Of course, there are a lot of good restaurants in Tokyo too, but it is a general rule that the better, the more expensive. I have to admit that there are a lot of bad restaurants in Tokyo too. However, in Osaka, we can easily find a good and reasonable restaurants. I think the average quality of restaurants is way higher than in Tokyo. I have never regretted that I chose a bad restaurant in Osaka. Anyway, this funny pierrot is one of the most popular symbols in Osaka. It is a character doll of a famous and traditional restaurant named "Kuidaore." Unfortunately, the restaurant is reported to be closed in a few days because of business reasons. I visited the restaurant on the last night of my stay in Osaka though it was the seventh meal on the day for me!
