an economical hotel in Shinimamiya

Osaka is very famous as a gourmet town in Japan but Osaka people are not
only enjoying luxurious food. Most popular food of Osaka is Takoyaki
(fried octpus ball),food stall of which you can see everywhere in Osaka
and you have to try it once here.
If you are not gourmet and want to save money for food,then we recomend

busy business men in order to save money and time,because it is very quickly
served and it's price is enough cheap.
Popular fast food restaurant chain of Gyudon are Yoshinoya,Sukiya and Matsuya,one
of them you can find easily in the downtown. Try to eat it once and give
an order for Gyudon Nami(middle size of
,if you are very hungry and want to eat more then give an order for Gyudon Dai(big size)
Price of the middle size Gyudon is about \300.

you are in Japan. Price of the ordinary Katsudon is about \500.
