Sundays call for mass, and near the chapel my family and I went to was a Johnny’s store with a long line of girls waiting for the store to open! I wish I had time to line up too, because I’m so curious about the merchandise that they were selling!
After mass, we decided to go straight to Oasis 21 in Sakae.
Oasis 21’s unique retro-futuristic design in the middle of the city makes it a must-see in Nagoya. It has a glass roof, and you can perfectly see the Nagoya TV Tower from the top floor.
But most people just really come here for shopping and food!
Speaking of food, we had Nagoya’s specialty hitsumabushi (eel) for lunch! It was glorious! *cry*
Nagoya Omotenashi Busho-tai (the group that I talked about in my previous post) endorsing Nagoya’s specialty food. Local faves include miso katsu, tebasaki (marinated fried chicken wings), ebi fry, miso nikomi udon, and hitsumabushi.
There is no such thing as diet in Japan, because everything tastes so good.
Coffee time! I’m finally able to share where the photo in my header came from.
Glass roof and a city view.
The water isn’t just here for aesthetic purposes, apparently. I heard it also helps in lowering the building’s temperature when it’s really hot.
One of Nagoya’s famous landmarks is the Nagoya TV Tower from 1954! It’s the oldest TV tower in Japan.
You can get a nice view of Sakae from the glass roof.
Below the roof is the “Milky Way Square”. Backin December, they had a skating rink in the middle. Not sure if they change it depending on the season.
In the premises of Oasis 21 is an otaku shop that sells some familiar Ghibli characters.
For all the Naruto fans out there! I only followed the first two seasons of the anime, so I’m not as invested in it as some of my friends and relatives, but I still find it amazing for being able to continue for so long!
Any new anime recommendations? I haven’t had time to watch any from the last two seasons except YowaPeda!
