I purposely didn’t reserve any restaurant for our last night in Osaka. It gave us a chance to walk around Umeda where our hotel was located. It was funny that all our previous meals were located in Namba when there were so many restaurants in Umeda too.
When planning for my trip to Osaka I knew I wanted to eat in a traditional kappo ryori which means sitting around a counter with the chefs behind it cooking meticulous dishes, slicing sashimi and preparing multiple courses.
When I research hotels to stay in abroad I check tripadvisor for reviews and pictures. I thought of checking for restaurants too and it showed Matsuzakagyu Yakiniku M as the number 2 restaurant in Osaka. It was actually number one when I did my research. I figured so many people can’t be wrong.
When I was doing research on where to eat in Osaka finding a good sushi place was on top of the list. Tsukiji Market in Tokyo is famous for its sushi so I thought of looking for Osaka’s wholesale fish market. That’s where I found Endo Sushi which was very highly recommended on the reviews I found online.
