Day 3 (28/10/13): Daytrip to Ise. Stay at Osaka *Part 2

|Inner shrine. No photography allowed beyond this point.|
After my visit to Inner Shrine, I went back to Oharaimachi and Okage Yokocho in search of lunch.
Wanted to try Ise Udon since it's a specialty food of Ise area.
|There are quite a number of shops selling chopsticks|
|Went back to this shop at Okage Yokocho, which sells Ise Udon.|
|Their menu. You have to queue up to place your order first, then they will give you a number tag, after which then you go find a seat and wait for them to call out your number (in japanese).|
|Outside seating. I chose to sit outside since the weather was nice and cool, and it was interesting sitting under such a rustic shelter while having lunch.|
|My number tage and receipt.|
|My order arrives. Ise Udon with Tempura. 840yen|
After lunch, I continued to stroll around Okage Yokocho.
Then I headed for the bus stop to wait for the bus to get to the nearby Isuzugawa station. The bus was a tad late so I nearly missed my train.
|Took this Ltd Exp Ise Liner train back to Tsuruhashi station in Osaka.|
For dinner, I went to Kani Doraku (Dotonbori outlet) for my first crab meal of this trip.
|Bought the little rabbit coin pouch from Oharaimachi.|
