OSAKA/ TOKYO AUTUMN ITINERARY 2014: DAY 5- Osaka Fish Market Edo Sushi/ Momofuku Ando Instant Ramen Museum/ IPPUDO Ramen & Osaka Aquarium!

Phew! Talk about long titles! Haha
Last day of Osaka today! Before we leave, breakfast at Edo Sushi! It's located at Osaka's version of Tsukiji so definitely worth checking out -- amazing sushi without the insane queses! It's actually pretty out of the way but it's nice to get away from the bustling crowds once in awhile!

They only have 5 main sets but you can just point to any of the pictures to order ala carte as well. Most of us ordered set 2 and lots of sashimi on the side! :D

Super thick and juicy pieces of sashimi! YUM! So delicately delicious!

The clam soup was DELISH. SO COMFORTING in the cold.

The place is really small and cosy. :)
After a hearty breakfast we went off to Ikeda to the Momofuku Ando Instant Ramen Museum! We were so excited for this! I LOVE INSTANT NOODLES (but everything in moderation!), it's honestly a totally cool invention and I was dying to make my very own and bring it home!
To get a glimpse of what it's like, here's a video for your reference!

Yay! We are almost there!

Our happy trek soon came to an abrupt end when we realised that The Instant Ramen Museum is CLOSED ON TUESDAYS!!! Hahahah. Oh well. The funny thing is, we KNEW about it and we made a note in our rough itinerary but we FORGOT about it. If you do go, please do tell me all about it so I can live vicariously through you.
So to soothe our sorrows, we decided to try our Ippudo Ramen next door!

Starbucks in Japan is fantastic, btw. Must be the milk. Or the air.
I'm pretty impressed with Singapore's Ippudo's Ramen standard actually. The difference is barely noticeable (both are good). The only reason why it might taste really fantastic in Japan is because it costs a fraction of the price it sells for in Singapore. So same standard but WAY cheaper = much more enjoyment!
My phone and camera ran out of battery right at this point so I also ran out of pictures for the day. Now if I may invite you to use your imagination to picture a series of cute seals, otters, penguins, cappybaras (!) whales, (ugly) fish and cool jellyfish, that was basically the rest of my day. HAHAHHA.
Transport was really cheap this day because we bought the Osaka (Kaiyukan) Aquarium Pass for Y2550. I highly recommend it if you are going to the Osaka Aquarium because it's a whole day transport pass with admission to the aquarium. Admission is already Y2000 so you are basically paying Y550 for a full day of train rides. Didn't bother with other travel passes in Osaka because we wanted to wander rather than take the trains within Osaka and most days we traveled only to a single destination and back. Hope this helps! :D
