Osaka: Days 5 and 6

Day 5 (August 21)

In the morning, I went to my favorite Osaka coffee shop, Marufuku, for a cup of coffee and an egg sandwich. I didn't know what else to do, but I knew I didn't want to stay in the dark hostel all day so I took the train to Sumiyoshi Shrine. It's one of the oldest Shinto shrines in Japan and has an unusual looking bridge. I also walked to the nearby Sumiyoshi Park, where there were some herons just chilling.

I didn't want to do anything in the afternoon due to the heat. I also realized that there aren't many things I want to do inn Osaka and I should have only booked 4 or 5 nights at this hostel. Oh well.

Is this an heron or an egret?

Day 6 (August 22)

I went to Marufuku one last time and had my usual coffee and egg sandwich. I decided to leave early from Osaka and take the train to Kobe as I've had enough of Osaka.
