My good friend from Portland has been in town recently, so we've been exploring all over Osaka together. Last Saturday, we got together to do some new release shopping in Amemura (Osaka's Harajuku equivalent) - she got the special dress set at Metamorphose, and we both hit up Angelic Pretty for this week's new items.
Afterward, we dropped our shopping bags off at her Airbnb (conveniently walking distance away).
We took some photos in the apartment, which is very nicely lit with a huge wall of windows!
I wore my new overdress from DevilInspired - they sent it to me last week and it arrived very quickly! I guess China to Japan isn't much of a distance haha.
I actually bought the socks at Angelic Pretty that morning - they were brand new stock, and I had a full point card (¥3000 off a purchase), so I basically got them for free~ I had been wearing other translucent white socks earlier in the day, but they were cheap ones from Taobao that I wasn't overly fond of.
We then headed out toward Namba!
This bridge was near her apartment.
It's gotten rather warm this past week, so I didn't even need a jacket!
We took some photos in front of one of Osaka's most famous landmarks - the running Glico man~
The bridge to the left (just out of the picture) is always FULL of tourists taking photos - but it was fairly empty down by the waterfront!
It got really sunny, so I'm glad I had my parasol with me~
Glico man pose!!
We took some photos on Ebisubashi
I really like the contrast between myself and the passerby! Behind me is Shinsaibashisuji, a famous shopping street in Osaka.
I wanted to find some sakura to take photos under, which wasn't an easy feat in the middle of downtown Osaka!
We managed to find a few in a small park in Shinsaibashi.
Last week was peak sakura season, so they've begun their rapid decline already. The pink petals carpeting the ground is still really pretty, though!
Afterward, we went and did purikura together!
They had cute seasonal Easter stickers!
