Osaka is a strange place

I’ve been to Osaka numerous times, the people there are so different from Tokyo:

– In Tokyo you’re suppose to stand on the left side of an escalator, and leave a lane clear for those who walk up or down.  In Osaka,they stand on the right side of the escalator.

– In Tokyo, people riding their bikes avoid the people walking toward them.  Osaka, the bikers expect the people walking to avoid them.  If you’re not used to this, is seems like the bikers are targeting you.

– In Osaka everyone is a comedian.

    いいなあ、こんな街。一度暮らしてみたい。そういえば昔うちにホームスティしてくれた大阪の男の子たちもうちに帰ってきたらなんかネタの披露してくれたなあ。いいなあ、こういうの。
